New TIki Cocktails: The Dead Reckoning Drink Recipe

How to make the new school tiki cocktail drink "The Dead Reckoning".

This Neo Tiki drink recipe was created by the tiki legend Martin Cate. Cate is starting a new meca of tiki called Smugglers Cove. This drink is complex and well blended and very potent. Very interesting tiki drink in that it mixes rum with wine.

Ingredients for "The Dead Reckoning"
• 2 oz. aged rum (Cate used Flor De Cana 12-year, Cockspur 12-year)
• 1/2 oz. Navan vanilla liqueur
• 1/2 oz. pure maple syrup
• 1/2 oz. tawny port
• 1 oz. fresh lemon juice
• 1 oz. pineapple juice
• 1 dash Angostura bitters (do not overdue)
• 1 oz. club soda

Combine all ingredients but the soda water in a cocktail shaker. Add ice, shake and strain into a highball glass over fresh ice. Top with soda water. Stir gently. Garnish with pineapple leaves, mint spring, and a lemon spiral.
