Neat fact: a “quarantine” gets its name from the Venetian word quarantena, meaning “forty days” – the amount of time that ships were required to wait in isolation during the Black Death plague. To those of us who made it through the-year-that-shall-not-be-named, a quick 40 days sounds like a dream.
Like many other people in the world, we spent that year at home, making drinks like this delicious Quarantine Order from William Prestwood at San Francisco’s Pagan Idol. Featuring the classic tiki combo of rum, grapefruit, and cinnamon, this one gets an extra dose of tropical magic from passion fruit syrup and a heavy dashing of bitters.
Vigorously shake all ingredients with ice and pour unstrained into a goblet, snifter, tiki mug, or tall glass. Garnish with a mint sprig, and a cherry and lime wheel spear.
