V for Victory

Our take on the classic Three Dots and a Dash cocktail originally created by Don the Beachcomber to commemorate the Allied victory in WWII. According to intelligence reports, the recipe was lost for years but rediscovered by Jeff "Beachbum" Berry for his book Sippin' Safari. The subtle spice notes of the rum and the richness of the syrups really bring it home. Adapted by Craig Hermann and Justin DuPré for Tiki Kon: USO (2016) and served on the home bar tour.

  • 2 oz Deadhead Rum
  • 1/2 oz Lime Juice
  • 1/2 oz Orange Juice
  • 1/2 oz Honey Mix
  • 1/2 oz BG Reynolds Falernum Syrup
  • 1/4 oz BG Reynolds Demerara Syrup
  • 1/4 oz Allspice Dram
  • Dash Angostura Bitters

Shake all ingredients with crushed ice. Pour into a Tiki Kon collins glass and garnish with 3 cherries and a spear of pineapple.
