Ingredients

  • 25ml golden rum
  • 1 tbsp orange curacao
  • 2 tsp orgeat syrup
  • 25ml lime juice
  • 2 tsp sugar syrup
  • ice cubes
  • crushed ice
  • 25ml dark rum

To garnish

  • wedge of pineapple, a lime wheel or a cocktail cherry (or all three!)

Method

  • STEP 1

    Pour the golden rum, curacao, orgeat, lime juice and sugar syrup into a cocktail shaker with a handful of ice cubes. Shake until the outside of the shaker feels really cold.

  • STEP 2

    Fill a tumbler with crushed ice then strain the cocktail over it. Slowly pour the dark rum over the top so it stains the top of the drink a rusty gold.

  • STEP 3

    Garnish with fruit like pineapple, lime and cocktail cherries if you like.
