"Crossing the Isthmus | Crafted Pour"

"aka Newfie Fogcutter V2 I was doubly prompted to revisit (besides when I milk punched it) this exotic offering that I whipped up last year—first by April’s contest, and encouraged by making High Proof Preacher’s pineapple Demerara syrup that’s been making the rounds online.
