The GoldenEye Cocktail
- 1/4 cup Jamaican Rum
- 1/4 cup pineapple juice
- Fresh lime juice to taste
- Lime or pineapple wedge for garnish
- Add rum, pineapple juice, and a squeeze of lime juice to cocktail shaker. Shake well; pour into ice-filled rocks glass. Garnish with lime or pineapple wedge.
- Only use white rum. You might be tempted to use spiced rum because you have it on hand. I promise you that is not a good idea. Spiced rum & White Rum are not the same.
- Fresh pineapple juice is the best here. Canned pineapple juice tastes like it’s been in a can. Something’s not right.
- Only a squeeze of lime: a whole tsp would be too much. Just give it a boop…little light squeeze.
- Use plenty of ice goes in the glass, fill it more than halfway.
