Tiki week concludes today with one of my new favorite Tiki Drinks: The Ancient Mariner. This is a new creation by Tiki researcher/author/mixologist Beachbum Berry circa 1994. This is the kind of drink I would want handed to me while in the hot, humid lobby of a Caribbean hotel while waiting to check in.
The Ancient Mariner
3/4 ounce fresh lime juice
1/2 ounce simple syrup
1/4 ounce pimento liqueur (St Elizabeth’s Allspice Dram–available in most big liquor stores)
1 ounce Demrara rum
1 ounce dark Jamaican rum
Shake all ingredients well with lots of crushed ice and pour unstrained into a double old fashioned glass. Garnish with a mint sprig and lime wedge
