Pago Pago

Pago Pago tropical sour cocktail with white rum, pineapple juice, lime juice, green Chartreuse, and white creme de cacao

Pineapple and green Chartreuse is one of our favorite flavor combinations, albeit a rare one. Thank goodness for the Pago Pago, a 40s tiki recipe that – in this perfected incarnation from Jeff “Beachbum” Berry’s Beachbum Berry Remixed – is the best representation of this delicious combo, with a touch of white chocolate for added complexity and interest.

Canned pineapple juice is decent enough in this recipe. However, if you have access to ripe, fresh pineapple, do use it here! Older versions of the recipe even called for fresh pineapple to be muddled right in the shaker. It’s much harder to correctly measure, but absolutely divine when done right. Three or four 1-inch cubes ought to do it.

Ingredients

Instructions

If you have fresh pineapple, begin by muddling in a shaker. Top with the remaining ingredients (including pineapple juice, if you’re not using fresh), add ice, and shake. Strain (double-strain if using fresh pineapple) into a chilled cocktail glass, and garnish with fresh pineapple and pineapple leaves.

Great drinks-great app

Great cocktail app. Very good list of drinks that actually are well made and tasty. I have used other apps that just were overloaded with tons of junk drinks. It feels like the creators of this app actually enjoyed making the drinks and decided which were good enough to add to the list. Really appreciate the perpetual updates drinks listing too. Hate paying for things more than once.
