Rob found this drink, then made the map, and the eye patch, and added the treasure. So. Went to work making the infused vanilla rum. Because, you know, I just had to make to it for him. He’s this man child that has this weird fixation on The Goonies, and loves everything about that movie.
When we were in the US a couple of years ago, we went to Yellowstone NP. Then drove across the US to Portland. And on the way, we went to Astoria, so his dream could become reality. I wasn’t so impressed by it all. But he was totally stoked.

30ml Overproof Rum
30ml Vanilla Rum- recipe to follow
15ml Banana Liqueur
7.5ml Cinnamon Syrup
4 dashes Angostura Bitters
1 barspoon Fresh Lime Juice

Stir all of the ingredients with ice, then strain into a glass filled with a large ice cube.
Skull mug, or Old Fashioned Glass. I just happen to have a skull on hand.

Vanilla Rum:
Add 3 split vanilla beans to a 750ml of aged rum. Let steep for 3 days, then strain and add 1/2 cup 2:1 simple syrup to the infusion. Shake well to combine. The infusion will keep indefinitely, but the vanilla flavor will fade over time.

I used a cut down version, so used 150ml of rum- RumBar Gold, with a half teaspoon of vanilla paste. Because who can use a whole bottle of flavoured rum as a home bartender. Unless, of course, it’s Christmas cake making time. It’s not that just yet.
