Rum, coffee, and pineapple is one of our favorite tiki combos, and the Castaway is where it all began for us. It’s a creation of legend Jeff “Beachbum” Berry, based on a shot he used to serve at Dorrian’s Red Hand Bar in NYC.
You can use dark rum or aged rum here, but if you use dark rum, be sure it’s not too sweet. We’ve tried with a blackstrap rum, and found that its molasses sweetness fights with the coffee liqueur.
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into an tall glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish with a pineapple spear or wedge and a cherry.
