Fern Gully

The Fern Gully is a fanciful drink that seems to recall European romance of the tropics. Here Italian amaretto and rums from the Caribbean and American colonies are combined for an exotic experience. There is an immistakable nuttiness to the drink that comes from amaretto and coconut cream, that when put in a tiki mug like this one, evokes a shady place to rest and contemplate romantic notions. If you have amaretto, don't rule out going the tropical route with this ordinarily continental liqueur.
  • 2 oz. dark rum (Lyon Bijou Batch used)
  • 1 1/2 oz. light rum (Plantion 3 Stars used)
  • 1 oz. amaretto (Lazzeroni used) 
  • 1/2 oz. coconut cream
  • 1 oz. orange juice 
  • 1 oz. lime juice
Combine all ingredients in a blender with ice and blend until smooth. Pour into a grim-faced tiki and garnish at will, or just put it in a chilled wine goblet.
