Y’all, it’s nearly August…YIKES! Ok, ok. Let’s all calm down a minute and reflect on what this means. 1. Summer is not over. 2. The light is changing and we’re looking forward to Autumn, which means that 3. Perhaps we want a lil depth and character in our Tiki drinks.
Amaro Montenegro is here to give us that character!
Hello Luxardo Cherries, hello frosty glass.
To the luscious Montenegro I’ve added Flor de Caña 7 (smoothest of all), Carpano Antica (the spices go so well with the Montenegro), Orgeat, and some Lime juice. This is a seriously satisfying and complex Tiki drink. Hope you enjoy!
- 1 oz Amaro Montenegro
- 1 oz Flor de Caña 7 Year Aged Rum
- 1 oz Carpano Antica Formula
- 1 oz Lime Juice
- 1/2 oz Orgeat

Combine ingredients over ice and short shake. Double strain into double Rocks glass (or short Tiki mug) over crushed ice and garnish.
