blackstrap betty

1 1/2 oz Cruzan 5 Year Rum (Barbancourt 8 Year)
1/2 oz Cruzan Black Strap Rum
3 oz Pineapple Juice
Juice 1/2 Lime (1/2 oz)
1/4 oz Coconut Cream (2 bsp Coco Lopez)
1/4 oz Licor 43

Shake with ice, strain into a 14 oz glass, fill with crushed ice, garnish with a mint sprig (grapefruit peel snake), and add a straw.
One of the other drinks that caught my eye on the BarNotes app was a Tiki drink created by TikiWahine called the Blackstrap Betty. She entered this drink into the Forbidden Island cocktail competition, and it impressed Martin Cate and the other judges so much that it was deemed the winner. When I prepared the drink a few Saturdays ago, the molasses and vanilla aromas from the mix were joined by grapefruit oil from the garnish. Next, the creamy sip offered lime and pineapple flavors, and the swallow shared rum and molasses elements that were sweetened by the liqueur's vanilla notes.
