Arawak Cup

The Arawak are the indigenous people of Caribbean Islands, so this, like the Gauguin, is a Westerner's interpretation of tropical paradise. Again, passion fruit is necessary to give the Arawak Cup the exotic zip of the Mai Kai No, but there's no soda here and pineapple juice (and South African baby pineapple spear) make the Caribbean theme a little spurious. This was a rich, dark brown cocktail that disappeared quickly when sipped through a straw.
  • 2 oz. dark rum
  • 1/2 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1/2 oz. lime juice
  • 1/2 oz. passion fruit syrup
  • 1 tsp. orgeat syrup
  • pineapple spear
Combine all ingredients except pineapple spear in a shaker with ice. Shake and pour into a tiki or highball glass full of fresh ice. Garnish with a pineapple spear.
