Mister Pip's St. Thomas Special

So the verdict is still out on whether Mister Pip was a real person. My guess is that he was a St. Thomas island inkeeper or bartender and had this recipe to his name. And I must say it is a really good drink to be associated with for perpetuity. There's a lot of colonial trappings in this drink. Dark rum, nutmeg, and tropical fruit, to name a few. Lyon rum really shines with the nutmeg dusting on top. I was very impressed with how well the flavors tied together to make one solid, if a little dessert-like, drink.
  • 2 oz. dark rum
  • orange juice to top
  • 1 tbsp. passion fruit syrup
  • ground nutmeg
Combine rum and syrup with ice in a mixing glass. Stir and strain into a Collins glass over ice (or crushed ice in a tiki). Fill with orange juice. Sprinkle nutmeg on top.
