As part of my original photo shoot, I present to you the Dreamboat 2.0! I used pineapple-infused Spiced Rum instead of regular rum, which is what makes it 2.0.
Made as follows:
1.5 oz. Pineapple-infused Spiced Rum
0.5 oz. Lemon Juice
1 oz. Orange Juice
0.5 oz. homemade Falernum
0.5 oz. Brandy
0.5 oz. Blue Curacao
dash Angostura bitters to taste
Shake and strain into rocks glass
Garnish with rum-soaked pineapple
The homemade falernum is made with cloves, almonds, lime zest, and rum. So, this drink is very much a rum drink. The falernum I made is extra clove-y, because I like them, and it is very much the star. The pineapple blends well with the orange juice and the lemon juice. All-in-all, a crowd pleaser with a nice “sit and sip” kind of vibe.
