Cool Carlos

In college, the dining hall had a juice dispenser. One side was OJ, one side was cranberry, and the middle was a strangely colored strawberry-orange-pinapple thing.

I also had experimented with hair color in college. It had been blonde, then it was bright pink. As the bright pink faded, I thought I'd try to cover it with coppery red. It didn't really take, so I ended up with strawberry-orange-pinapple colored hair.

That's the color of this drink. Much like how I found hats to be useful with that hair color, this drink feels the need to cover itself with large and colorful objects as well, in the form of fruit garnishes.

1.5 oz Dark Rum (Gosling's)
2 oz cranberry juice
2 oz pineapple juice
Splash simple syrup
Splash lemon juice
1 oz Orange Curacao (Potters)

Shake all but Curacao with ice. Strain into an ice-filled collins glass and float curacao on top. Garnish with pinapple and orange slices and a maraschino cherry.
