last rites

3 oz Aged Martinique Rum (2 oz Depaz Rhum Agricole)
3/4 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Passion Fruit Syrup
1/4 oz Falernum (Velvet)

Blend with 6 oz crushed ice for 5 seconds (shake with cracked ice and pour into a tall glass). Fill with crushed ice, and I added a long lime twist.
After my shift two Thursdays ago, I turned to Beachbum Berry's Sippin' Safari and decided upon the Last Rites created by Marciano Licudine at the Mai-Kai circa 1959. Overall, it reminded me of the South Pacific Punch with a different rum style and no orange juice element. Once prepared, it offered a lime aroma from the twist I added that preceded the lime and passion fruit-driven tropical sip. Next, the swallow was a combination of grassy rum, passion fruit, and clove.
