As the story goes, Ernest Beaumont-Gantt created this potent drink in the 1930s and named it for its mind-altering effect after a friend consumed three of them. This lower-proof version is made with Velvet Falernum, an almond-and-lime-flavored liqueur that's a key ingredient in many tiki drinks.

  1. Ice
  2. 1 1/2 ounces amber rum
  3. 1/2 ounce dark rum
  4. 1/2 ounce 151-proof rum
  5. 3/4 ounce fresh pineapple juice
  6. 3/4 ounce fresh lime juice
  7. 1/2 ounce Velvet Falernum
  8. 1/2 ounce brown sugar simple syrup (brown sugar dissolved in equal part simmering water and cooled)
  9. Mint sprig, for garnish
  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add all of the liquids and stir well. Strain into an ice-filled tiki mug. Garnish with the mint.
