pineapple kingston negroni

1 oz Appleton Signature Rum
1 oz Stiggins' Fancy Pineapple Rum
3/4 oz Sweet Vermouth (Noilly Prat)
3/4 oz Campari

Stir with ice, strain into an old fashioned glass with a large ice cube, and garnish with an orange twist.
Two Mondays ago, I uncovered Paul McGee and Shelby Allison's riff on Joaquin Simo's Kingston Negroni. Their drink was the Pineapple Kingston Negroni that they crafted at Chicago's Lost Lake and got published in Imbibe Magazine in January of 2020. Instead of taking a funky route with Smith & Cross rum, the duo opted for a tamer Jamaican rum with Appleton Signature and supplemented with fruity notes from Stiggins' Fancy Pineapple Rum. Once prepared, the Pineapple Kingston Negroni proffered orange, pineapple, and berry aromas to the nose. Next, grape and cherry on the sip twisted into rum, caramel, and bitter pineapple-orange flavors on the swallow.
