diamondback colada

3/4 oz Rittenhouse Rye Whiskey
3/4 oz Laird's Bonded Apple Brandy
3/4 oz Green Chartreuse
3/4 oz Coconut Cream
3/4 oz Pineapple Juice
3/4 oz Lemon Juice

Shake briefly with crushed ice, pour into a Tiki mug such as a coconut one, and add a straw.
After attending the USBG Boston meeting featuring Conniption Gin at the Bostonia Public House two Mondays ago, I decided to head over to nearby Daiquiris & Daisies for a drink. There, I was greeted by bartender and co-proprietor Joe Cammarata who made me the Diamondback Colada that I requested from the menu. For this mashup, they went with the Green Chartreuse variation of the Diamondback as the spirit in a Piña Colada. The combination presented a herbal aroma with hints of apricot and rye to the nose. Next, pineapple and coconut notes on the sip slithered into apple, rye, and herbaceous flavors on the swallow.
