mr. pink

2 oz Aged Rum (Plantation Original Dark)
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/4 oz Campari
1/4 oz Pineapple Juice
1/4 oz Simple Syrup 1:1
1 Egg White

Shake once without ice and once with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with an edible flower (thin lime wheel).
Two Tuesdays ago, I decided upon the Mr. Pink in Imbibe Magazine as the evening's drink for it seemed like an allusion to the movie Reservoir Dogs. This mashup of a Jungle Bird and a Campari Sour was created by Troy Tingling of the Rum House in New York City, and the idea of an egg riff on a Jungle Bird reminded me of the Flip the Bird. In the glass, Mr. Pink welcomed the senses with a dark rum and lime aroma. Next, a creamy lime and caramel sip led into rum, pineapple, and bitter orange flavors on the swallow.
