piranha punch

2 oz Lemon Hart 1804 Rum (El Dorado 5 Year)
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
2 oz Guava Juice
1/2 oz Falernum (Velvet)
1/4 oz Campari

Whip shake with 5 oz crushed ice, pour into a Tiki mug, top with crushed ice, and float 1/4 oz grenadine.
Two Thursdays ago for January's Tiki the Snow Away, I decided to make a recipe that Tiki Lindy crafted for her October SpookTiki (subtitled Happy Hulaween and Mahaloween) event on Instagram. That drink was the Piranha Punch that sent me searching in my local Brazilian supermarket for guava juice to make this libation. Once built, the Piranha Punch offered berry and guava aromas to the nose. Next, a tropical and lemon sip bit into rum, guava, and bitter orange flavors on the swallow. Once the grenadine sank into the drink, the pomegranate's berry flavors began to complement the guava and Campari notes.
