gantt's tomb

3/4 oz Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Orange Juice
1/2 oz Simple Syrup
1 oz Gosling's Black Seal Rum
1 oz Rittenhouse Rye
1/2 oz El Dorado 151 Proof Rum
1/4 oz Allspice Dram (St. Elizabeth's)

Shake with ice, strain into a Pilsner glass (Tiki mug), fill with crushed ice, and garnish with a mint sprig.

Two Sundays ago, I began flipping through Beachbum Berry's Remixed for recipes that I had not tried yet. There, Brian Miller's 2008 Gantt's Tomb that he created at Death & Co. called out to me. The drink was inspired by Don the Beachcomber's Zombie and all of its layers of flavor, and Miller named it after Don whose real name was Ernest Raymond Beaumont Gantt.
Gantt's Tomb proffered a mint aroma that preceded the fruity lemon, orange, and pineapple sip. Next, caramel rum, rye spice, and allspice rounded out the drink on the swallow which ended with a light jet fuel finish from the El Dorado 151 that melded with pineapple notes lingering there.
