I normally save drinks I’ve found on websites, IG or on YouTube for awhile before thinking about giving it a whirl. But not this time. I watched Liandro, crediting Chris Day (GM of Kon-tiki located in Oakland), put this out a short time and I was immediately prompted to make this one at once! Day’s cocktail was inspired by Steve Buscemi’s role in The Big Lebowski. Without having the specific spirits, I’ll note the originals in the ingredient listing as well.
1 1/2 oz St Lucia Spiced Rum (I used Myers)
1/2 oz Mr. Black (I used Tia Maria)
1/2 oz Creme de Coconut
1/2 oz cCreme de Banane Liqueur
2 Dashes Angostura Bitters
Grated Cinnamon Garnish
Combine all but the cinnamon into a cocktail shaker and add a small amount of pebble ice.
Whip shake until you all but hear the ice fade away.
Pour the shaker contents into a chilled hurricane glass 2/3 filled with pebble ice (top with additional ice if needed) and grate fresh cinnamon atop the cocktail.
