tiki alexander

3/4 oz Lost Spirits 151 Proof Cuban Rum (Lemon Hart 151)
3/4 oz Tempus Fugit Crème de Cacao
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz Heavy Cream

Shake with ice and strain into a snifter glass. Fill with crushed ice and garnish with nutmeg, a pineapple wedge, and pineapple leaves (nutmeg and borage flowers).

After my night out on the town, I decided to make a drink from TurnTableKitchen that I had spotted on the Instagram of Jeffrey Levy, the drink's creator. The article was on the Brandy Alexander, and Jeff's riff on it was a rum one that took it in a Tiki direction.
The Tiki Alexander shared a nutmeg aroma from the garnish. Next, a creamy lime sip gave way to chocolate, rum, and pineapple flavors. I could not help but think that Green Chartreuse would not be out of place here to convert it into a Pago Pago Alexander, but that would take the drink even further away from its roots.
