The Saturn, which was developed in California in 1967, proves a cocktail needn’t include rum to be considered tiki. In its place, orgeat, falernum, and passion fruit syrup provide the tropical backbone of clove, ginger, almond, and citrus that keep this drink well within the tiki canon. This particular version of the Saturn is courtesy of Pasión, a tiki-focused bar in Buffalo.
- Using a jigger to measure precisely, pour all of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker two-thirds to three-quarters full of ice.
- Cap the shaker and shake vigorously for 15 seconds (a little less if you are using small chunks of ice).
- Pour, strained, into a tiki mug filled with crushed ice.
- Garnish to your heart’s content.
