TiKi - esque cocktail
Pineapple Trainwreck

Contrary to its name, this cocktail is a perfectly balanced blend of sweetness, spice and acidity.

1 1/2 oz. aged rum (Magarian uses Bacardi A?ejo)

1 1/2 oz. fresh pineapple juice

3/4 oz. spicy ginger syrup (see below)

1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice

1 dash each Angostura and Peychaud?s bitters

Ice cubes

Tools: shaker, strainer

Glass: Old Fashioned

Garnish: skewered sour cherry and a pineapple leaf (optional)

Combine all ingredients and shake with ice. Strain over fresh ice cubes into an Old Fashioned glass and garnish.

For the ginger syrup: In a large sealable container, add 3 1/2 oz. of granulated sugar to 4 oz. of fresh ginger juice. Stir until sugar dissolves, add a small splash of vodka (optional, it acts as a preservative), seal, and keep refrigerated.

Here is another; I find it funny that everyone want's to TIki up their drinks.

we been Tiki - ing for years...

Freshman Daiquiri

For his riff on the classic Daiquiri, Manhattan bartender Theo Lieberman adds in a few additional tiki elements. ?I love the clove aspects of velvet falernum,? he says, ?as well as the richness of orgeat.? But sensing something was still missing from his finished drink, he decided to shake it ?bermuda-style? where an orange wedge is added to the mixing tin. ?It adds a nice, slightly bitter note and a little orange flavor.?

4 oz. white rum
1 1/2 oz. lime
3/4 oz. orgeat
3/4 oz. velvet falernum
2 fresh orange wedges
Ice cubes
Tools: shaker, strainer
Glass: coupes (2)
Garnish: lime wheels

Combine all ingredients and shake with ice. Strain into two chilled glasses and garnish.
