Caribbean Romance

I think that if you see multiple juices and grenadine in a recipe, you should be wary. (The Canado Saludo notwithstanding.) Plus Amaretto, though? Hm.

This drink, with the grenadine float, is very pretty. But it's next to undrinkable. Take a look at the ingredients: Amaretto, OJ, pineapple, grenadine...all of these are mostly sweet. There's nothing to balance this drink.
I had to stop and go brush my teeth halfway through because of the quarter inch of fuzz that had grown on them. I didn't finish.

This is where rum gets its bad name, folks. Don't encourage drinks like these. They'll only take advantage.

1.5 oz light rum (Bacardi Silver)
1 oz Amaretto (Disaronno)
1.5 oz OJ
1.5 oz pineapple juice
Splash grenadine

Shake all ingredients but grenadine with ice, and oour into an ice-filled highball glass. Top with grenadine and garnish with an orange slice.

(Note I unintentionally photographed this drink on top of an old-looking book to class it up. Didn't work. Especially since the book is a handyman's guide from the late 40's.)
