The Smuggler, an Ode to Polynesia!

Polynesian culture is beautiful, complex and storied. They’re well known for mastery of shipbuilding and navigation, but their mastery extends beyond the sea, it permeates social organization, religion, and allocation of food.

Polynesians had social mechanisms in place to deal with shipwrecks, and families separated at sea. In honor of Polynesian courage and character, I’d like to say, fa’afetai!

  • Shipwreck spiced rum 1.5 oz
  • Shipwreck coconut rum .75 oz
  • Boomerang liqueur .25 oz
  • Lime juice .75 oz
  • Demerara .5 oz
  • 2 mint sprigs
  • 1 eye dropper [full] homemade tiki bitters

Add mint sprigs first, then the rest of ingredients to your shaker tin, finally add ice. Shake vigorously for 15 seconds, fine strain over crushed ice and garnish with mint.

  • I started off working for non-profits, then teaching at charter schools in marginalized communities throughout Chicago, Oakland, CA and Portland, Oregon. My passion for learning, teaching and history is undeniable, but I was struggling financially, so I began moonlighting as a bartender just to make ends meet, and unexpectedly fell madly in love with every aspect of the bar business. For my squad and I, it is about so much more than making a great cocktail. It’s about memories, music, history and sharing those moments, ensuring you embrace the present, reflect on the past and securing a bright future.
