Liquid Assets: Where’s My Floatie

Grab your shades, find your pool toys, and let John Reynolds’ cocktail creation whisk you away to a tropical paradise. Where’s My Floatie features a vibrant flavor profile starting with a burst of tangy pineapple complemented by the zest of lemon juice and the exotic twist of Rhum Barbancourt. The addition of Fernet Branca infuses dry herbal and minty notes that perfectly balance the sweetness, yielding a drink as refreshing as it is pretty. Pair it with spicy, saucy, and salty flavors, like Hank’s Tunda Crudo, Crispy Cauliflower, or NC Shrimp.

½ ounce simple syrup
1 dash Crude Tiki Bitters

Combine ingredients in a tin without ice and dry shake. Pour into a glass and add a large scoop of crushed ice. Add a dash of Peychaud’s Bitters, garnish with fresh mint, and enjoy!
