Ancient Mariner

Jeff "Beachbum" Berry, Latitude 29 | New Orleans

Following a typical tiki construction, Jeff “Beachbum” Berry relies on a split rum base—part Jamaican rum, part demerara rum—and fresh citrus juices (lime and grapefruit) alongside a quarter of an ounce of allspice dram, which brings a richness and depth of flavor to this tiki rum sour.

  • 3/4 ounce lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce white grapefruit juice
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup (1:1, sugar:water)
  • 1/4 ounce allspice dram
  • 1 ounce aged demerara rum, preferably El Dorado 8-year or Hamilton Guyana 86-proof
  • 1 ounce dark Jamaican rum

Garnish: mint sprig, scored lime wedge

  1. Combine all ingredients in a mixing tin and shake with ice.
