My attempt at a slightly tikified/tropical version of one my favourite drinks, the Super Drunk Uncle by Johnny Swet. It’s usually a playful mix of scotch, drambuie lemon juice and orange curaçao, topped with an IPA beer. I wanted to keep the same idea but make it a dark, tikified, tropical drink. I swapped the lemon out for orange and pineapple, replaced drambuie with falernum to give it a slightly spicy edge, and used a mix of Jamaican and Barbadian rums in place of the usual scotch to really turn up the dial on the tropical. The addition of Mr Black rounds off the drink with a coffee bitterness that balances nicely with the inherent sweetness, and the use of a coffee Porter instead of an IPA highlights the coffee. My measurements are quite small due to my glassware, but feel free to up the proportions to fit whatever glass you have!
