quarantine order

1/2 oz Passion Fruit Syrup
2 1/4 tsp Demerara Cinnamon Syrup (1/2 oz Cinnamon Syrup)
1 1/2 oz Denizen Merchant Reserve Rum
1/2 oz Hamilton Demerara 86 Proof Rum (El Dorado 5 Year)
1 oz Grapefruit Juice
1/2 oz Lime Juice
7 dash Angostura Bitters

Shake with ice and strain into a glass with crushed ice. Garnish with a lime-cherry flag and mint sprigs.

After my shift two Saturdays ago, I returned to Lou Bustamante's The Complete Bartender Manual to make another tiki drink that I had spotted called the Quarantine Order. The recipe was created by William Prestwood of San Francisco's Pagan Idol, and it reminded me of the Simplified Zombie with passion fruit notes and a load of Angostura Bitters in the mix.
The Quarantine Order's garnishes contributed greatly to the drink's nose with lime, mint, and cherry aromas. Next, a lime and grapefruit sip was dried out by the Angostura Bitters, and this was followed by the rums, passion fruit, and the bitters' allspice and cinnamon on the swallow.
