MxMo LXIV: TIKI!—Rongorongo

February is Tiki Month, and for those of you who’ve been marooned without the joys of civilization, Doug Winship of the Pegu Blog is serving up all things Tiki, including this month’s Mixology Monday. His theme, of course, is Tiki! so grab half the bottles in the bar and make extra ice—this is gonna be a MxMo to remember. ...Or at least to the extent that it’s possible to remember anything after sucking down all those big tropical drinks. Please join me in a monumental Fogged In mahalo to Doug for hosting.


  • 2 oz gold Puerto Rican rum (Ron del Barrilito)
  • 1 oz Gosling’s Black Seal Rum
  • 1 oz Grand Marnier
  • 1/4 oz Velvet Falernum
  • 1/4 oz St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram
  • 1 oz pineapple juice
  • 1 oz lime juice
Shake with ice cubes and strain into a Tiki mug filled with crushed ice.

With notes of molasses, orange peel and spices twinkling softly like little colored lights, it’s sorta like Christmas all over again in an Easter Island mug. My mugs are 12 ounces, and I could fill them about 3/4 with crushed ice without being left with a dividend.


  1. Will you accept substitutions for the Grand Marnier?

    1. Sorry for the late reply—got kinda tied up.

      I’d say go for a substitution if it’s gonna let you make the drink, though you might keep in mind that my concept started with that rich panforte-like note from the GM and worked up from there.
