Wild Thoughts, featuring A. Smith Bowman

Naming the cocktail is one of the hardest parts! It’s usually a group effort. Velvet Falernum is from Barbados, as is Rihanna. So naturally her super catchy new song “Wild Thoughts” fit perfect!

.5oz Velvet Falernum
.5oz spicy pineapple syrup
2 dashes Angostura Aromatic bitters
.25oz Goslings Rum floater

Build in a mixing glass. Stir with ice until chilled. Strain over a large ice cube.
