Ingredients

Directions

  1. Combine the Flor de Caña, Calvados, Velvet Falernum, lemon juice, tea, and pineapple juice in a large pitcher and stir well.
  2. Add the Champagne (a good sparkling wine like Roederer Estate Brut would also be nice) and stir in the pineapple, blackberries, orange, and lemon.
  3. Chill and serve on the rocks in whatever picnic cup you have handy.

A Note from The City Cook

If you can't find Flor de Cana Grand Reserve, use another best quality aged rum.

Velvet Falnerum is a citrusy-sweet syrup used in Carribean cocktails.  It's been likened to a low-proof rum with flavor infusions of lime, ginger root, spices, and sugar.  While it is a liqueur, it is not typically drunk itself but instead used as a flavor enhancement in mixed drinks such as in this cocktail.
