Montenegro for Two

A fall-friendly trip to the tropics.

Layers of baking spice from Amaro Montenegro and Angostura bitters bring extra depth to this tropical rum drink from Santa Barbara. If you have cherry bark vanilla bitters on hand, split the measure with the Angostura bitters as they do at the bar for a fruitier cocktail profile.


  • 3 oz. Amaro Montenegro
  • 1 oz. Jamaican rum (Test Pilot uses Smith and Cross)
  • 2 oz. fresh lime juice
  • ¼ oz. pineapple syrup
  • ¾ oz. Demerara syrup (1:1)
  • 8 dashes Angostura bitters
  • Tools:shaker, strainer
  • Glass:tiki mug or pineapple shell
  • Garnish:edible flowers, orange slices, cherries, pineapple leaves


Add all of the ingredients to your shaker and shake for 8-12 seconds with ice. Strain into a pineapple shell or large tiki mug over ice. Garnish.
