Serves 1 (serving size: 1/3 cup)
Unlike most Tiki drinks, this Don the Beachcomber cocktail is on the simpler side, meaning you’ll want to use a higher quality rum for the extra-boozy concoction. Also, don’t forget to serve it in a flared metal cup, the 151 Swizzle’s signature vessel for over 40 years.
1 cup crushed ice
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (from 1 lime)
2 tablespoons simple syrup
6 to 8 drops Pernod
Dash of Angostura bitters
1 3/4 ounces 151 Proof demerara rum (such as Lemon Hart or El Dorado), divided
Dash of ground cinnamon
How to Make It
Place 1 cup crushed ice in a Collins glass; add lime juice, simple syrup, Pernod, Angostura bitters, and 3 tablespoons (1 1/2 ounces) of the demerara rum, and stir rapidly until frost forms on the outside of the glass, about 30 seconds. Top with remaining 1/2 tablespoon (1/4 ounce) rum, and sprinkle with cinnamon.
