Nui Nui Cocktail

"Created back in the 30s by legendary Don the Beachcomber, you get all the refreshment you crave from a Tiki with spices that taste more like Christmas. That’s a whole lot of happiness. If it’s too spice-heavy for you, cut the Dram in half."

1 ½ ounces gold Virgin Islands rum

½ ounce dark Demarara rum

½ ounce fresh lime juice

½ ounce fresh orange juice

¼ ounce cinnamon syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla syrup

1 teaspoon St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram

1 dash angostura bitters

If you want it a bit diluted, then blend everything with ice for just a flash. No slushiness, just a bit pulverized. If you want it more full flavored, as the Tiki gods prefer, then shake it with ice to some steel drum beats until those sluggish syrups truly dissolve. Strain into any Tiki mug with a fearsome protective grin over ice.
