Much like synchronized swimming I have a hard taking Tiki-cocktails seriously.
There's much to be giggling and pointing fingers at, but at the same time I have this strange feeling that the laugh is on me, so I do try.
And was happy to come across The Pago Pago that involves one of my favorite liqueurs Chartreuse. Also it does not seem to have that over the top amount of ingredients that sometimes make me suspect that the main attraction to Tiki-drinks is to get drunk really, really fast.
- A fresh slice of pineapple
- 1,5 cl fresh lime juice
- 1,5 cl Green Chartreuse
- 0,75 white Bols creme de cacao
- 4 cl golden rum
Start by muddling the pineapple, with the lime juice, the Chartreuse and the creme de cacao in a shaker. The object is to get all the juice out of the pineapple. Then add ice and rum and shake.
Strain into cocktail coupe and garnish with a piece of pineapple and a maraschino cherry.
