sumatra kula

1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Grapefruit Juice
1/2 oz Orange Juice
1/2 oz Honey Syrup
1 1/2 oz Light Rum (Privateer Silver)

Blend with 3 oz crushed ice for 5 seconds and pour into a Pilsner glass (shake with ice, strain into a Tiki mug, and fill with crushed ice). Garnish with a mint sprig (mint and flowers).
After my shift two Sundays ago, I was in the mood for a Tiki libation so I turned to Beachbum Berry's Sippin' Safari. There, I selected Don Beachcomber's Sumatra Kula created in Hollywood circa 1934 that appeared like a Honey Bee or Honeysuckle with a medley of citrus instead of lemon. Once built, the Sumatra Kula's garnishes added floral and mint aromas to the bouquet. Next, honey balanced the lime and other citrus notes on the sip, and the rum joined further lime flavors on the swallow with a grapefruit-tinged finish.
