Mr. Nate's St. Thomas Special

So there's this Mr. Pip's St. Thomas Special drink that has its roots on the island, but as I can tell, isn't really attributed to a real person. Since I'm not a real person either, in that nobody knows who I am, I have my own contribution to St. Thomas Island's cocktail culture.

St. Thomas is all about boat drinks, tiki drinks that are simplified for quick production and consumption. They don't require tiki mugs, and are often served on the beach in plastic cups. I'm at least trying to bring back a little tacky class to this type of cocktail.

This is a dry tiki with more juice than spice than the Mr. Pip's. It is also less desert-like. See what you think.
  • 2 oz. light rum
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. lime juice
  • 1/2 oz. orange juice
  • 1/2 oz. guava nectar
  • 1/2 oz. sugar syrup
  •  mint sprig
 Build drink in a tiki mug full of ice and stir. Garnish with mint sprig.
