- 1 oz 1:1 honey syrup

- Shake well with ice and strain in to a glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish with an grapefruit zest twist.
I'm stepping up my garnish game. I received a bottle of Smith and Cross as a gift and have been experimenting with tiki and other rum drinks. This one was great! This rum is crazy. Really strong. 114 proof! Not a sipper but it has some great flavor. It stands up to the pimento dram which can really overpower a drink.
The crushed ice is key. The glass is all frosty and slippery. Great on a hot SF Valley evening.
