Poolabanga Sling

A tropical Sling, very much like the Singapore Sling, is a fizzy and fruity cocktail that is easy to drink on a hot day. The substitution of aged rum and falernum made me want to put it in a tiki mug--and that's a good impulse. Slings aren't especially pretty in clear glasses, the Herring and lime juice tend to make them look a little brown. The glass itself, then becomes the decoration. Just be sure to pick a large glass because a lot of tiki mugs don't have room to top with soda.
  • 1 1/2 oz. aged rum (Vitae Barrel Aged used)
  • 2 oz. orange juice
  • 1/2 oz. lime juice
  • 1/2 oz. falernum (homemade used)
  • tsp. cherry brandy (Herring used)
  • club soda
  • mint sprigs
Combine all ingredients except soda and mint in a blender with ice. Flash blend and pour into a highball or tiki mug. Top with soda and garnish with mint.
