A fresh, fruity cocktail with melon liqueur. A little less mutant green than some that use melon liqueur.
1.0 oz Melon Liqueur
0.75 oz Coconut Rum
0.75 oz Banana Liqueur
1.0 oz Sweet and Sour Mix
1.0 oz Pineapple Juice
Add ingredients to a shaker filled with ice. Shake. Strain into a cocktail glass.
I’m a big fan of rum. And so far, I’m a big fan of Plantation rums. This was no exception and in fact it a fantastic rum. The Stiggins’ Fancy Pineapple is one of Plantation’s dark rums, with a pineapple infusion. Don’t think syrupy sweet pineapple. This has a mild sweetness and the essence of pineapple. You instantly get the flavor, but it doesn’t overwhelm.
I can certainly drink this neat. I’m sure it would go well in any number of cocktails. I’ll have to try some and report back.
Proof: 80% (40% ABV)
Price: (It was a very generous gift from my son!) On the shelf it is $30 for 750ml
Buy Again: Yes, but I’ll have to save my pennies and save it for special occasions!
Back to a rum cocktail with lots of tropical flavors.
