This Tiki-Inspired Cocktail is a Must-Have Summer Sipper!

If you’re craving a cocktail that’s equal parts sweet and tangy, this tiki-inspired drink is a true winner. It’s an original, made-for-ModCloth recipe by Lauren Myerscough of Cocktail & Sons, and is inspired by the classic Hurricane. With a splash of coconut rum and Fassionola – a syrup made with tropical fruits that was once very popular in the 1920s and has since made a comeback – this hibiscus-hued cocktail is as refreshing as it is delicious.

The Rum-Dinger

  • .75 oz. Coconut Rum
  • .75 oz. Dark Rum
  • .5 oz. Cocktail & Sons Fassionola
  • .25 oz. Orange Curaçao
  • .5 oz. Freshly-Squeezed Lime Juice

How To

Squeeze .5 ounces of fresh lime juice, careful to remove any seeds. Fresh tastes better, but you can also use pre-packed lime juice.

Add the rum, Fassionola, and curaçao and mix well. If you want a drink that’s slightly less sweet, substitute a white rum, and if you’re in a pinch you can substitute triple sec for the curacao.

Pour over ice and garnish with a lime wedge or edible flowers!

+ There you have it! Just tiki this delicious cocktail outside & sip in the sunshine.
