Calypso is a very spicy tropical drink that needs fresh nutmeg in addition to falernum to achieve the potent flavor. Like the demigoddess of Greek myth, It is enchanting enough to waylay Odysseus--just look what it did to my bottle of Mad River demerara rum!
  • 2 oz. gold rum (Mad River demerara used)
  • 1 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. falernum 
  • dash angostura bitters
  • freshly grated nutmeg
Combine liquid ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Dust with nutmeg.
