What happens on the island, stays on the island. Summer isn't over yet, we're going to squeeze out the last of those citruses while we can. August '21's box took us down to the islands The Beach Boys only dreamed about. We channeled our own inner Pirates of the Caribbean because we needed rum... and lots of it. When tackling this box, it may be time to break out your island shirts and hula skirts for this class. And definitely don't forget your Tiki glass.

Jamaica (actually pronounced: huh-my-cuh) Allspice creates a more warm, woody flavor added to this cocktail which pairs extremely well with the darker tastes of Aged Rum, Bourbon, or even Reposado Tequila. Although, this is a blog to "kick rum month's ass" after all, but we wont tell if you decide to experiment.
