FI Runner Up, Gantt’s Caipirissima

Posted by TraderTiki on October 3rd, 2008 — Posted in Don the Beachcomber, Drinks, Events, Recipes, Rum, Tiki Drinks

The second Runner up of the Forbidden Island Cocktail Contest, Gantt’s Caprissima, by Craig Hermann! This drink is on the menu at Forbidden Island from now through November! This drink is a simple and simply delicious combination, the Grapefruit and Cinnamon combo is truly a Beachcomber classic.  Watch out for the grapefruit though, the thinner the peel the better it’ll be.  Craig also has his own writeup on the drink. Cheers to the runner up!
