Pineapple Rum Tiki Cocktail
"We came across this tiki classic on @distinguishedspirits’ YouTube channel—props to him for the amazing storytelling and inspo for the crazy cool garnish! The cocktail was created by Don the Beachcomber and dates back to 1937. And as far as tiki drinks go, it’s easy to make tho a bit on the smaller side. Just be sure to not miss that tsp of cherry syrup (we dipped right into our jar of Luxardo cherries for the goods) really takes the drink to the next level.   "
