Fogg Cutter

Don't let the frilly umbrella on this drink fool you - it's not for the weak of heart, or liver for that matter.

Made with 4 ounces of booze, including two different rums, gin and brandy, it actually tastes surprisingly approachable, due in part to the addition of pure almond extract. 

Created in the 1970's at New Orlean's Bali Hai At The Beach, it was misspelled with an extra "g" on fog - most likely to differentiate it from the original Trader Vic's version. Well, that or whoever named it had consumed one to many themselves!
