|1 cup lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage, I used Jarritos
1 ounce lime juice
1 fluid ounce 151 proof rum
1. In a shaker, combine ice, light rum, lilikoi and lime juice and brown sugar syrup. Shake vigorously.
2. add lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage and roll.
3. Shake well and pour mixture into a Hurricane or other large specialty glass. (I used a pilsner it worked fine)
4. Float the 151 proof rum on top of the drink. Sink in a straw. Enjoy!
Brown Sugar Syrup
Combine 2/3 cup water and 1 cup light brown sugar and bring to a boil. Simmer over medium heat, about 3 min, till sugar dissolves. Cool, pour into a jar and refrigerate for up to one month.
