Tangelo Terrarium

We’re enjoying the last evening of Tiki Month here at the Lounge with another original tropical climate in a glass. This one’s tangy and a little spicy, sort of a snifter-sized tangerine in crushed ice.

Tangelo Terrarium
  • 2 oz gold Barbados rum
  • 1/2 oz Swedish punsch
  • 1/4 oz allspice dram
  • 1/2 oz Lemon Hart 151 (float)
  • 2 1/2 pink grapefruit juice, fresh
  • 1 oz tangelo juice
  • 1/2 oz lime juice
Shake all except Lemon Hart with ice cubes and strain into a large snifter. Add crushed ice. Float the Lemon Hart. Tangelo twist, mint sprig.

Sort of an aquatic terrarium—or a rum one. I like overproof floats on Tiki drinks for so many reasons, not least because they’re something to look forward to in all that crushed ice at the end.
