Wisdom of Pelé

Portland, Oregon-based tiki bartender Blair Reynolds considers this drink one of his classic creations. It plays with many of the original tiki cocktail flavors: cinnamon, honey, grapefruit, lime, and, of course, copious amounts of rum. Sip carefully; this is a serious drink.

What to buy: You can use any high-quality commercial cinnamon syrup, or infuse your own.

Falernum is a clove- and lime-infused liqueur and can be purchased at most liquor stores; a popular brand is John D. Taylor’s Velvet Falernum. If you can’t find falernum, try making your own. We think "this recipe ":http://www.chowhound.com/recipes/paul-clarkes-falernum-9-28427 is a great stand-in.

The Wisdom of Pelé recipe was featured as part of our Tiki Cocktails photo gallery.

Instructions

Pour honey and hot water into a small bowl and stir until smooth. Transfer to a blender and add all remaining ingredients except vanilla liqueur. Quickly pulse until frothy but not slushy, about 4 pulses. Pour into a collins glass and top with vanilla liqueur.
