Piña Fhtagn

 

1 oz Plantation 3 Star White Rum
1 oz Butterfly Absinthe
1/2 oz Green Chartreuse
1/4 oz Oleo Saccharum
2 dashes Dr. Adam Elmegirab Aphrodite Bitters
1/4 cup Diced Pineapple
2 oz Pineapple Juice
1 1/2 oz Chaokoh Coconut Milk
1 1/2 cup ice

Place everything in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a Cthulhu Tiki from Horror in Clay (or any other Tiki, Collins, or Piña Colada glass). Garnish with some ridiculous fruit and leaves.

I did come across a more modern variation on the Piña Colada that was shaken and poured over ice, but I wanted to keep this as honest a variation as possible. There was no way in Hell I was going to buy a premade mixer so I got a couple brands of Coconut Milk to try, favoring this Chaokoh. It was a bit on the heavy side, but not as much as others so I cut it to 1 1/2 oz from a suggested 2 oz. I knew I had to fit in an absinthe to fit it into the Mythos Absinthe Cocktails but I also wanted to add a little something else to give it some more depth. To help that depth, and a bit more green tint, I added the Chartreuse but also experimented with some newly made Oleo Saccharum and a couple dashes of Aphrodite Bitters which have a desired ginger-ness to them along with a bit of coffee and chocolate that I hoped wouldn’t be too pronounced.
