Quarantine Order

William Prestwood, Pagan Idol | San Francisco

Building off the quintessential flavor combination created by Don the Beachcomber, William Prestwood marries cinnamon and grapefruit with passion fruit, lime, Angostura bitters, and heady Jamaican rum in his Quarantine Order. “I wanted to create a drink that could highlight the cinnamon notes in Angostura bitters,” says Prestwood. “I added some lime, passion fruit, and my favorite rums for mixing,” he says, citing the blend of Appleton Estate Signature and Rum-Bar Gold, a go-to mixture his team has since dubbed “Jam Tropics.”
