1 oz Appleton Estate Reserve
0.5 oz Tullimore Dew Irish Whiskey
0.5 oz Brinley Gold Shipwreck Spiced Rum
0.5 oz Orange Curaçao
0.5 oz Pama liqueur
2 oz unsweetened pineapple juice
Muddle mango in the bottom of a hurricane glass. Add crushed ice. Shake all ingredients well with ice and strain over everything.
NOTES: As Jen said last week, we’ve started messing with tiki-themed drinks for a future party, and I have to say that this one came out surprisingly well. Irish whiskey is a consistently underrated liquor when it comes to mixing. It’s so smooth and mellow without the same sweet bite you get from American whiskeys. It went really nicely with the rums and gave it a little bit of a liquor edge that kept the drink from heading down that too-sweet road. The Shipwreck is quickly becoming a new staple for us as well. Neither of us have really been all that interested in spiced rum, but this one may make believers of us both. We were also a little dubious about the Pama, but it turns out I’m enjoying it as a grenadine substitute when I want something a little tangier.
