bitter pineapple daiquiri

2 oz Plantation Stiggins Fancy Pineapple Rum
1/4 oz Campari
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Simple Syrup

Shake with ice and strain into a rocks glass.
Two Sundays ago, Andrea and I stopped into Deep Ellum in Allston. One of the drinks we ordered was the Bitter Pineapple Daiquiri that seemed to merge the Jungle Bird with a classic Daiquiri, and it reminded me of Brick & Mortar's Jets to Brazil. In the glass, this Daiquiri gave forth a pineapple and lime bouquet to the nose. Next, lime with hints of tropical notes filled the sip, and the swallow continued on with pineapple, rum, and bitter orange flavors to yield a rather complex but pleasing profile.
