Early Mint in The South Floyd Street Cocktail


So what is this cocktail called? In my estimation as a cocktail whisperer, it’s abundantly clear that this drink should be based in a classic, yet somehow twisted in keeping with my passion for flavor…
Fresh mint, dark rum, an absinthe wash, dark maple syrup- some grilled pineapple to go in a muddle with the mint. Yes. Here we go. A liquid treat.


Coconut water frozen in ice cube trays
Grilled pineapple chunks (just grill them over wood or sear them in a steel pan until charred)
Almond Water
Clear Rum or your choice
Fresh mint
Grade B. Maple Syrup
Lucid Absinthe for the wash
Spray of fresh seltzer
