Golden Ananas

Friday, May 26, 2017

Happy Memorial Day weekend! In honor of the start of summer, I'm raising a glass—or more specifically, a hollowed-out pineapple—filled with this tropical cocktail.

Golden Ananas

3/4 oz mezcal
3/4 oz aged rum
1 oz fino sherry
1 oz pineapple juice
1/4 oz cinnamon syrup

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously for 10–15 seconds, then strain into a highball glass or tropical fruit over crushed ice.

Notes: Spicy, sweet and sophisticated, these are my favorite kinds of tiki cocktails. Created by Lynnette Marrero of Llama Inn, the cinnamon syrup is a slightly fussy but positively essential ingredient. To make, combine 1 cup of sugar with 1 cup of water and a cinnamon stick. Let it stand for as long as you can (ideally overnight, but at least an hour), then strain and store in the fridge. Cheers!
