The Classical Itch

A tiki potion built on traditional lines. (I was dreaming of being a Hawaiian bartender.) There seems to be a handful of recipes with Itch in the name, notably the Tropical Itch. I’m guessing the itch in question has not so much to do with a physical condition as an impulse to forget all responsibilities and walk off down the beach.

The Classical Itch
  • 1 oz gold Martinique rum
  • 1 oz gold Puerto Rican rum
  • 1/2 oz 151-proof Demerara rum
  • 1/2 oz curacao
  • 2 oz orange juice
  • 1 oz grapefruit juice
  • 1 oz pineapple juice
  • 2 dashes Fee Brothers Old Fashion bitters
I recommend squeezing your own citrus. (You knew that.) A pinkish grapefruit is fine, but not a red one. You want it to have at least some sourness. Shake with a cup of crushed ice and pour into a fancy 12-oz glass. Garnish with pineapple and cherry. Serve with a straw.
