Ocho Rios

Ocho Rios is named after the touristy town in Jamaica, and is fittingly creamy like so many tropical drinks foisted on tourists. Blended like a creamy smoothie, there's really interesting fruit flavors that remind you that not all tropical drinks require pineapple juice.

Just a note, I intend to make falernum soon. It's an almond syrup that is flavored with lime zest and cloves. Since I have a nutty tasting tamarind syrup that has a citrus zip, I figured the substitution was easy enough. I may revisit this one once I make the falernum, but then again, there are plenty of falernum drinks out there to try.
  • 2 oz. dark rum
  • 1 oz. guava nectar (Goya used)
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • 1 tsp. falernum (tamarind syrup used)
  • 1 oz. half-and-half
Combine all ingredients in a blender with ice. Blend until smooth and pour into a champagne flute.
