The Expedition (Smuggler's Cove Recipe)

This is one bold and richly flavored Tiki. It suggests an expedition that involves the Americas as well as the exotic east with its spices, honeys, rums and syrups. As an example of the care I took to make it, the bottles displayed in the background are all the liqueurs and syrups I made to pull this cocktail off.
  • 2 oz. black blended rum (homemade blend used, but Goslings Black Seal will work)
  • 1 oz. bourbon
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • 1/2 oz. cinnamon syrup (cinnamon added to demerera syrup)
  • 1/2 oz. honey syrup (honey and water mixture)
  • 1/2 oz. vanilla syrup (vanilla extract added to demerera syrup)
  • 1/4 oz. coffee liqueur (homemade coffee liqueur used)
  • 2 oz. club soda
Combine all ingredients in a blender and briefly blend. Pour into a tiki mug and top with more crushed ice. Garnish with flowers.
