Hello and happy Monday, readers!
Another week, another original Monday Funday creation here at The Woman At The Bar!
This week we decided to do a twist on a classic tiki drink, but with delicious and deliciously southern bourbon rather than rum. Sound odd? More like sounds amazing.
All we’re saying is: sometimes you’ve gotta try something seemingly crazy to get something delicious and, well, the Southern Tropics is both crazy and delicious.
So let’s just cut the crap and get down to brass tacks, alright?
For the Southern Tropics, you will need:
- 2 oz bourbon
- 1/2 oz Falernum
- 1/2 oz lime juice, plus lime wheel (for garnish)
- 1/2 cup pineapple, chopped
- 1 cup ice
Gather your ingredients plus your jiggers, blender, fruit press, and tall serving glass.
First, squeeze your lime and pour 1/2 oz of juice into your blender.
Next, add in your 2 oz of bourbon. For the first, and possibly only, time we actually suggest that you not use Bulleit because of it’s high rye content. You want to use a liquor that is higher in corn and barley, because rye does not work as well in this drink.
Now add 1/2 oz of Falernum.
Follow that with 1/2 cup of pineapple pieces.
Top it all off with 1 cup of ice.
Now blend that thing for 30-60 seconds, depending on the power of your blender. You want all of the pineapple fully incorporated.
Once it is at the right consistency, pour it into your serving glass, add your lime wheel and a straw, and you are set to go!
Why would you ever doubt us?
