Don's Beach Planter

The last few days I have missed several important days in the booze universe: Bartender’s Day, Margarita Day and Don the Beachcomber’s birthday.

So for Mardi Gras I mixed them all up.

I mixed Don’s Beach Planter - the recipe rescued by that amazing author and bartender Beachbum Berry - and since it took me more than two days to make the sugar for my King Cake (just a Danish smørkage) I decided I could use it for a sugar rim in honor of Margarita Day and because there is a hint of a Sidecar deeply hidden in Don’s drink.

I mixed:
  • 3 cl aged rhum agricole - I used Savanna 
  • 1,5 cl Jamaican rum - I used Plantation Xaymaca 
  • 0,75 cl Cognac - I used Pierre Ferrand 1840 
  • 3 cl pineapple juice 
  • 1,5 cl lime juice 
  • 1,5 cl passion fruit syrup - I used homemade 
  • Dash Angostura 
  • Big dash absinthe - I used La Clandestine 
I shook everything with ice and poured it unstrained into a glass with a half rim of sugar - garnished with lime and cherry on cocktail pick.
