A couple years ago we visited Water Island, which is a small, sparsely inhabited chunk of land just off St. Thomas.
I was introduced to these by our good friend Captain Jeff of Dinghy's Beach Bar and Grill.
While we were there I had a number (we'll leave it at that) of drinks like this, so I re-created that magic for the site. As you can see from the glassware it's a dark, brooding magic straight from the tiki gods themselves.
Now, here's the thing about dark tiki magic mixed with pineapple juice. It goes down a little too easy and shenanigans tend to ensue.
I have HEARD it said that sometimes people post things to Facebook that they shouldn't when under the influence of dark tiki magic. And that, my friends, is how this drink got its name.
- 2.5 oz Dark rum
- 1 oz Limoncello cream

Add all of the ingredients, except nutmeg, into a cocktail shaker with ice and vigorously shake
