Ancient Mariner

Julian Cox

Three Dots and a Dash, Chicago

This tiki-inspired cocktail gets its spark from the interplay of light and dark rums, combined with a signature allspice syrup that rounds the drink out with just enough subtle heat to draw you back in for another sip.


1 ounce Ron Añejo Dos Maderas 5+3 Rum
3/4 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
1/2 ounce demerara syrup
1/2 ounce freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
1/2 ounce Ministry of Rum Collection Hamilton Demerara River Rum
1/4 ounce Jamaican black rum 
1/4 ounce Hamilton allspice syrup
Mint sprig for garnish


Combine all ingredients in a cocktail mixer filled with crushed ice and shake well. Pour into an Old Fashioned rocks glass and garnish with a sprig of mint.
