Gin • Sweet
Satellite Swizzle

A spritzy take on a Mai Tai, this cocktail from Missouri’s The Golden Girl Rum Club is the perfect tiki drink for beer lovers. “Orgeat, falernum and passion fruit are a trinity of tiki heavy hitters,” says Rogan Howitt, co-owner of GGRC. “Dry herbal components from the gin can surprise tiki newcomers who were expecting a sweet, sugary spirit as their base.” His favorite component of the cocktail is the beer—Miller High Life, of course. “It lengthens and carbonates, and offers familiarity as well,” he says.
