Pango after the Rum Lab

     Since doing the Rum Lab with Barbancourt's Pango Rum, I have been working with this wonderful mango and pineapple flavored rum.    We are making a cocktail based on the painkiller using the Pango that is absolutely fabulous, and a few other ideas have worked out very well.   I am finding that the more I work with this blend, the more places I find that I can use it.    The versatility of the flavors blend well with so many other tropical flavors making it perfect for most any tiki or tropical cocktail.

Pango Punch
  • 1 1/2 oz. Barbancourt Pango
  • 1 oz. Plantation Barbados Grande Reserve
  • 3/4 oz. Taylor's Falernum
  • 1/2 oz. Pomegranate Liqueur
  • 1/2 oz. White Grapefruit Juice
  • Splash of Sprite
Place all ingredients except the Sprite in a shaker filled with ice and shake until chilled.  Strain into a pint glass filled with ice and top up with the Sprite.  Garnish with a sprig of mint and a lime wheel.   This can also be floated with a nice overproof rum like Plantation Trinidad Overproof or Lemon Hart 151.   

This is just one idea that really worked for me, you can experiment and come up with so many really flavorful cocktail using Barbancourt's Pango in your back yard Tiki of in the kitchen if the summer hasn't reached you yet.   ;o)
