1.5 oz Tom Cat Gin
0.75 oz Campari
1.5 oz Fresh Pineapple Juice
0.5 oz Fresh Lime Juice
0.5 oz VT Grade A Dark, Robust Maple Syrup
Combine ingredients in a mixing tin, add ice, shake, and strain over crushed ice in a tiki mug if you’ve got it. Go crazy with the garnish, a Campari soaked pineapple works well, and using cherries or pineapple leaves is fun. Try and make it look like a cats face!
This is a play on the classic:
