Last Rites

Last Rights tropical sour cocktail with rhum agricole ambre, lime juice, passion fruit syrup, and falernum syrup

Last Rights hails from the iconic Mai-Kai restaurant in Florida, developed in the 1950s by tiki legend Mariano Licudine. It’s surprisingly restrained, given the era of its birth – a quality that makes it feel fresh and modern nearly three-quarters of a century later.

If we ever had to choose a single tiki-style cocktail to subsist on for all time (perish the thought!), the Last Rites would be at the top of our list.

Last Rites makes use of a classic sour template, turned up to 11. The aged rhum agricole you use should have a lot of character; the woodier, the better. The split syrup base is really the star here, tempering the wood-and-grass notes of the rhum with big, flowery, fruity flavors.

Fresh out of rhum agricole ambré? A good aged cachaça will do, in a pinch.
