Tropicalia
1 1/2 oz orange juice (fresh if possible)
1 oz fresh lemon juice
3/4 oz tea syrup (English Breakfast)
1/4 oz honey mix
2 oz silver rum (Caliche)
1 oz gold Barbados rum (Mt. Gay Eclipse)

Shake well with ice cubes, pour unstrained into a double old-fashioned glass or a bucket mug. Garnish with a lime wedge.

Tea syrup
Brew a strong English Breakfast style black tea and mix it with equal parts baker’s sugar while the tea is still hot. Stir to dissolve the sugar and store in a bottle in the refrigerator. Add 1/2 to 1 oz of silver rum as a stabilizer, depending on the amount of syrup being stored.
