“…Jay made me a drink called the Frederico, named after a former guest. It’s a blended (yes, blended—get over it) mix of fresh juices (guava, passionfruit, pineapple, orange), añejo rum, and his secret ingredient: a shot of Jack Daniel’s.
To be fair, the fresh juice alone put this cocktail in an entirely different class than what passes for tropical on the mainland. But the whiskey was key. It balanced the fruitiness and gave the drink some depth. It eliminated the feeling that I should be wearing a muumuu and apologizing for my order. It didn’t taste like something my kid might like. It tasted like a real drink, plus sunshine.”
