Mr. Keith

Gonna find my way to heaven, ’cause I did my time in hell
I wasn't looking too good but I was feeling real well
Before they Make Me Run, M. Jagger/K. Richards

Tiki time again, or in this case, tikibilly cuz there’s definitely some rock and roll in this one. Inspiration came from the mug below, Ye Olde Treasure Mappe, found on a recent trip to Portland, Oregon. (There’s just something tikibilly about Portland, one of the many reasons I keep going back.) The Mappe is one of a numbered edition designed by Katie Mello of Rum Demon.

Mr. Keith
  • 1 oz Bacardi 151
  • 1 oz Averna
  • 1/2 oz Cruzan Blackstrap
  • 1/2 oz allspice dram
  • 1 tsp absinthe
  • 1/4 oz lemon juice
Shake with a cup of crushed ice, and pour into a 12-oz mug or glass. Crushed ice to fill, straw.

Dark, spicy, intense. This one made me think right away of a certain guitarist, but shares a name with my housemate’s dad as well. This drink is for him.
