Recipe time! We are serving this Pi Yi tropical drink at this Spring's dinner, tomorrow evening! This drink was mixed by Jason Asher, a leading mixologist with Youngs Market. He is awesome! The history is that this drink was served at "The Islands in Phoenix" in the 1960s. PI YI 1 oz. Gold Miner Agave rum, 1 oz. Gold Miner Barrel reserve rum, 1/2 oz. Funkin brand Passion Fruit Nectar, 1/2 oz. R&W Peach Liqueur, 1/2 oz. Honey syrup (2:1), 1 oz. fresh lime juice, 1.5 oz pineapple juice, dash angostura bitters, blend with crushed ice, and serve with a pineapple leaf garnish, or tropical flower garnish.
by Vern Whaley, from Canada, one of our guests today... 2 cups of ice cream, 2 cups coffee, and 1 cup of rum. (Best with the Agave). Mix well, and refrigerate overnight. The next morning, mix again and drink. Makes 4 servings? That all depends....
Time for a Recipe! This one is from Paula Shuffler, who has sent this in as one of her favorites. She says "I am a Manhattan fan, so decided to make a Gold Miner Manhattan and it has become my favorite". So here is another Manhattan recipe! 2-3 oz Gold Miner Dark Rum, 1/2 oz sweet vermouth, 1-2 dashes angostura bitters, and a splash of maraschino cherry juice. Garnish with a cherry. Serve on the rocks or not in a cocktail glass, or for a classic tourch, combine ingredients in a shaker and serve in a chilled martini glass with cherry dropped into the bottom. Nice! Thanks Paula!
