Celebrate the Unofficial End of Summer with a Cobra’s Fang

With today being the unofficial end of summer it’s time to whip up something refreshing and strong, the Cobra’s Fang.

The Cobras Fang is an original Don the Beachcomber’s invention.  The exact recipe for the drink remains unclear. My personal favorite is a version created Brian Miller of Lani Kai.

Cobra’s Fang
1.5 oz 151 Demerara Rum (Lemon Hart)
.5 oz Lime Juice
.5 oz Orange Juice
.5 oz Passionfruit Syrup
.25 oz Cinnamon Syrup
.25 Falernum
1 dash of Angostura
1/8 tsp of Absinthe
Shake and strain over crushed ice and garnish with a cinnamon stick. 

Notes:
The citrus helps to keep the drink light and fresh with the passionfruit adding the exotic sweetness with a hint of sweet spiciness from the cinnamon. The rum makes its presence known throughout the drink with
the Angostura and Absinthe helping to tie all the flavors together. I also enjoy adding about .75 oz of Dark Jamaican Rum when I want an even boozier drink.  This is the type of drink that helps to keep fall/winter at bay.
