coola culla don

1 1/2 oz Gold Puerto Rican Rum (Caliche)
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/4 oz Cinnamon Syrup (BG Reynolds)
1/4 oz Donn's Spices #2 (1/8 oz each vanilla syrup and allspice dram)
1 tsp Cool Culla Mix (1/2 tsp each softened sweet butter and orange blossom honey)
3 oz Crushed Ice

Blend briefly to mix, add ice, and blend again for 20 seconds. Strain.
Two Saturdays ago, I began my post-shift drinks with a Tiki number from Beachbum Berry's Sippin' Safari. The Coola Culla Don was created by Don the Beachcomber circa 1937 and the combination of butter, honey, cinnamon, vanilla, and allspice dram reminded me of the Pearl Diver's Mix. Once prepared, it offered honey, cinnamon, and allspice aromas. Next, a rich creamy sip had honey balanced by lime notes, and the swallow offered the rum, allspice, cinnamon, and vanilla flavors.
