Scott Noble of VenTiki Tiki Lounge & Lanai (VenTikiLounge.com) in Ventura created this custom cocktail to highlight Channel Islands Rum. (The cocktail is also available at the bar.)
3 ounces Channel Islands Rum
½ ounce fresh lemon juice
1 ounce fresh lime juice
2 ounces passionfruit syrup
½ ounce honey syrup*
Put all ingredients into a martini shaker with ice, and shake to mix. Pour the entire contents of the shaker into a glass. Garnish with an orange triangle and maraschino cherry.
*To make honey syrup, put ¼ ounce of honey and ¼ ounce of water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring, just until honey has dissolved. Take off the heat and cool.
