FI Runner Up, Gantt’s Caipirissima
The second Runner up of the Forbidden Island Cocktail Contest, Gantt’s Caprissima, by Craig Hermann! This drink is on the menu at Forbidden Island from now through November! This drink is a simple and simply delicious combination, the Grapefruit and Cinnamon combo is truly a Beachcomber classic. Watch out for the grapefruit though, the thinner the peel the better it’ll be. Craig also has his own writeup on the drink. Cheers to the runner up!
- 2 oz Rhum Clement VSOP
- ¾ oz Cinnamon Syrup (adjust to taste, depending on grapefruit sweetness)
- ¼ Grapefruit cut into pieces
In a mixing glass, muddle the grapefruit chunks and syrup. Add rum and crushed ice, shake, and pour the contents into a Double Old Fashioned glass.
