• 1.5 oz. aged rum (Don Q Gran Añejo)
  • 0 75 oz. Meletti
  • 0.5 oz. Clement Mahina Coconut Rhum Liqueur
  • 0.25 oz. lemon juice
  • 0.125 oz. crème de menthe (Tempus Fugit)
  • dash of Angostura bitters

Shake with ice and strain into coupe.

Coconut and mint were the catalyst here. I wanted lots of bitter to counter the sweetness, so went for an amaro in Meletti, bolstered by Angostura. For acid I added the lemon. The Don Q made a nice base, but honestly I took it off my shelf in order to finish the bottle.

The name comes from The Coconut Girl creation myth from Indonesia. It’s a trip, so I encourage you to look it up. But it’s only the coconut reference I was looking for. Google leads you down some fascinating paths. Just have a nice drink in your hand as you go down the rabbit hole.
