Josiah's Bay Float

I've been looking for ways to use a bottle of Galliano since I bought one more than a week ago. If you've ever done the same, you know it is hard to find recipes that don't involve cream because it has such a rich vanilla flavor. More imaginative mixologists have discovered that it works great in tropical drinks as well, and the following are a few of my favorite tikis and punches.

  • 1 oz. gold rum
  • 1/2 oz. Galliano
  • 1 oz. pineapple juice
  • 2 tsp. sugar syrup
  • 2 tsp. lime juice
  • champagne or sparkling wine
  • lime slice
  • maraschino cherry
  • hollowed out pineapple shell (optional)
Combine all ingredients except champagne, lime slice and maraschino cherry in a blender with ice. Blend until smooth and pour into a hollowed out pineapple shell or hurricane glass. Add champagne and stir gently. Garnish with lime slice and maraschino cherry. (Mine is garnished with a baby pineapple spear.)
