four tons of glitter

1 1/2 oz Plantation Pineapple Rum
1 oz Savory & James Manzanilla Sherry
3/4 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Demerara Syrup
1 pinch Mint
2 oz Soda Water

Lightly muddle the mint in a tall glass, add the rest of the ingredients with the soda water last, and fill with crushed ice. Garnish with pineapple fruit leaves and a sprig of mint, and add a straw.
Andrea's choice of drink at Brick & Mortar was Jessie Solomon's Four Tons of Glitter that continued on with the disco-themed drink names. The rum, dry sherry, and lime made me think of Cane & Table's Death & Sundries so I was curious to taste this one too. Once in the glass, the Four Tons of Glitter shared a minty aroma that led into a dry white wine and lime sip. Next, pineapple and rum on the swallow ended with mint on the finish. Overall, it reminded me of a pineapple-tinged Mojito as well as the previously mentioned the Death & Sundries.
