One of my former volleyball teams was named "Dingos of George". No one on the team was named George, and the name itself was the result of a long and surreal email exchange. But it's the best team name I've had since. However, none of the league administrators could ever spell it right. Dingoes, Dingo's, Dingoe's...sheesh. Anyway, that ramble was all a preface to this drink, the Dingo.

I can only assume (or hope) that this name was created in some Aussie bar as a refreshing antidote to a long walk through the dusty outback. Or it could be named such because the sandy orange color is very much like a dingo.

All the rum drinks are starting to run together in my mind, but this one has some Tennessee whiskey and Amaretto, which do make it rather distinctive. In general, this one has too many ingredients to ever become a favorite, but it's definitely worth trying once.

.5 oz light rum (Bacardi Silver)
.5 oz amaretto (Potters)
.5 oz Tennessee sour mash whiskey (Jack Daniel's)
1 oz simple syrup
1 oz lemon juice
2 oz OJ
Splash grenadine (homemade)
Shake with ice and pour into an ice-filled highball glass. Garnish with an orange slice.
