Voyager Cocktail

By Robert Hess

This represents my entry into the classic Tiki cocktail arena. Since those Polynesian inspired restaurants were intended as a mini-vacation, I felt the name "Voyager" worked really well... or perhaps it's because I'm a big Star Trek fan... either way, it's a great drink.

Recipe

Ingredients

2 oz gold rum

1/2 oz lime juice

1/2 oz Benedictine

1/2 oz falernum

2 dashes Angostura Aromatic Bitters

Instructions

  • shake with ice
  • pour into glass over ice
  • garnish with a lime wedge

    This looks like a pretty good cocktail. I’ll have to try it out once I pick up some Benedictine.

    And since we’re making requests, I’d like to see you tackle the Navy Grog in a future show.

    Excellent! looking drink!  As soon as my Falernum arrives from Kegworks I will be trying one of these.

    Thanks Robert for all of your advice and information.

    I loved this drink, but I tweaked it by using half gold rum and half dark. I really liked the extra flavor from the Gosling’s.

    Nice touch with the NASA shot glass used to measure the lime juice :-)

    Sipping on this one right now and it really is excellent.  It’s certainly a tiki drink but with a nice little surprise from the Benedictine, which adds an interesting herbal note.  Ah, I love tiki drinks in the winter.  Next I’ll be whipping up the Jolly Roger.

    Of course, it isn’t winter quite yet.  Perhaps the rum has gone to my head.
