Scurvy Root Rum Cocktail

When the spicy ginger of a classic Dark ‘N Stormy meets the minty essence of a Mojito, a new rum cocktail is born. “When the mint bouquet and sweet smell of rum hits your nose you’ll feel like you’re on the beach,” says Makani bartender Gabriele Mercadante.


  • 1 1/2 oz. aged rum
  • 3/4 oz. fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 oz. honey
  • 1/2 oz. fresh ginger juice
  • 5-7 mint leaves
  • 1/2 oz. blackstrap rum, to float
  • Tools:muddler, shaker, strainer, fine-strainer
  • Glass:collins
  • Garnish:mint bouquet


Muddle the mint in a shaker tin, then add the remaining ingredients (minus the blackstrap rum), plus ice. Shake to chill, double strain into a Collins glass filled with fresh ice. Top with soda, float with the blackstrap, then garnish.
