1 oz Batavia Arrack (von Oosten)
1/2 oz Plantation OFTD Rum
3/4 oz Manzanilla Sherry (La Gitana)
1/2 oz St. Germain (St. Elder)
1/4 oz Ginger Syrup
3/4 oz Lemon Juice

Shake with ice, strain into a rocks glass with a large ice cube, and garnish with 3 grapes on a pick (whip shake, pour into a Tiki mug, fill with crushed ice, and garnish with a grapefruit twist).
Two Fridays ago, I kicked off my celebration of the January Instagram phenomenon of Tiki the Snow Away with the Circe from Chloe Frechette's Easy Tiki book. The recipe was crafted by Channing Centeno at Otis in Brooklyn, and I took the on-the-rocks delivery and made it a bit more tropical. Here, the Circe met the nose with a grapefruit, floral, ginger, and rum funk aroma. Next, lemon, peach, and white wine notes on the sip transformed into funky rums, floral, and ginger flavors on the swallow.
