Anani Punch

Constraints can sometimes lead to innovation, and the best part of this Tiki cocktail can be credited to a snow storm. Not a typical Tiki situation, I grant you. With the UK's weather taking a turn for the worse, getting out and stocking up on Lemons and Limes was out of the question. The only citrus fruits in the house were Tangerines but a Tiki drink was needed to momentarily escape the latest ice age gathering pace outside. Rum and Tangerine therefore became the natural starting point. A bit of experimentation resulted in the addition of a touch of Pineapple Juice and Passion Fruit syrup. A glance out of the window into the ongoing blizzard was the final inspiration required: an escape to warmer climes and a typically Tiki finish was needed. Float overproof Rum and garnish with half a spent Tangerine shell. The Anani Punch. Serve with lots of ice and excellent central heating.

  • 2 shots of Appleton 8
  • 1 shot of freshly squeezed Tangerine Juice
  • 0.5 shots of freshly squeezed Pineapple Juice
  • 0.5 shots of Passion Fruit Syrup
  • Float a dash of overproof Rum
Shake with ice, serve over crushed ice in a rocks glass and garnish with half a spent Tangerine shell.
