Bermuda Rum Swizzle
2 oz Dark Rum
1 oz lime juice
1 oz pineapple juice
1 oz orange juice
1/4 oz falernum
Take everything and shake it well over ice. Strain into a highball glass filled with ice. You can garnish any way you please, but a cherry, slice of orange, pineapple or lime would seem apropos.
Here is the finished product.
The things sticking out of the top are two stirrers. The brown one is a tiki god sitting on a tiki paddle and green one is palm trees. Just the kind of tiki vibe I was looking for.
This drink itself is kind of interesting. The three juices are very strong in this drink. They cover the rum, I used Gosling's Black Seal, to the point where you can taste a bit of the molasses but not much. The lime juice comes through very strong and provides a sharp acidity that I really wasn't expecting. The flavor of the falermun is lost too. Of course, you don't want any flavor really jumping out at you, it should be a balance, but my personal preference would be to taste just a little more falernum and a little less acidity from the lime.
I may play around with the proportions a bit. Maybe take the the lime down to 3/4 oz. Maybe add a little more falernum. Maybe add a dash of orange bitters. Who knows. That is one of the great things about cocktails. You can try different ratios until you get something that pleases your palate.
