3/4 oz Fresh lime juice (about 1/2 lime)

1/2 oz Grapefruit juice

3/2 oz Unsweetened pineapple juice

1/4 oz Falernum

5/4 oz Gold Puerto Rican rum (J. Wray & Nephew works well, Bacardi is so-so)

1 oz dark Jamaican rum (Appleton Estate Extra (NOT V/X))

1 oz 151-proof Demerara rum (Lemon Hart 151 is best, Bacardi 151 is an unsupported substitute)

3/4 oz Maraschino liquer

1/4 tsp Grenadine (or pomegranate syrup – anything but Rose’s)

2 dashes Angostura bitters

6 drops (1/8 tsp) Pernod

a handful of crushed ice

Put everything in a blender for ≤5 seconds.

Serve in chimney glass with extra ice to fill, and garnish with a sprig of mint.

NOTE: When I type things like 3/2, that is not a typo – that is three halves.
