Jamaican Breeze Cocktail:

Recipe: 1.5 oz Malibu rum, 1 oz ginger syrup, 2 oz pineapple juice, 3 dashes Orange bittters

(Now this recipe is over 10 years old and so I don't use Malibu Rum anymore as its too sweet and low on alcohol. LCBO liquor store doesn't even put it with the "rums". So use any coconut rum that you may have).

Method: Shake all the ingredients in a shaker and strain into a double rocks (old-fashioned) glass with fresh ice. Garnish: orange wheel

Note: To make the ginger syrup here is the link for it: YouTube video for ginger syrup

If you don't want to make the ginger syrup, you can use slices of ginger into your shaker and muddle it with other ingredients but you have to double strain to not get pieces of ginger in your end product.
