A fantastic dessert drink, this creamy cocktail is named after the late timbale-banging band leader Tito Puente, who popularized Latin music around the world. Cyrus Keyhari uses aged Dominican rum to give depth to what he calls "a grown-up Orange Julius."

- Granulated sugar

- Moisten the outer rim of a highball glass with the lime wedge and coat with sugar. Fill the glass and cocktail shaker with ice. Add the 1/2 teaspoon of sugar, the orange juice, condensed milk, vanilla extract and amber rum; shake well. Strain into the prepared glass.
