My friend Elizabeth Harrell knows a thing or three about porch entertaining:her 1920s Tampa home has one of Hyde Park’s most hospitable verandas. That’seven more true when she’s serving her favorite drink from Little Palm IslandResort & Spa, midway between Key Largo and Key West. The drink was namedby one of the resort’s earliest bartenders, who noticed how the concoctionleaves guests in a Gumbylike (pliable) state, desirous to slumber in a hammock.Consider this a massage in a glass.Combine the juices and rums in an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Shake well andstrain into a highball glass filled with ice. Garnish, if desired.
