And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out

Description
This is one trippy drink...
Ingredients
2ozDry vermouth, Dolin
34ozPineapple juice
34ozMartinique Rum, La Favorite (Blanc)
1dsLactart
1bspOrange flower water
Instructions
Shake, Strain, Up.
Notes
This piles weird flowery aromas on top of one another - elderflower in the vermouth, honeyed flowers in the pineapple, funky/vanilla flowers in the rum, soapy ones in the OFW. The Lactart makes it take off in a totally different direction, so that it almost tastes like the absence of a drink, until you focus.
History
This started as a bad punch with dry vermouth + pineapple. Looked at the Algonquin, which is meh. Became frustrated - they should work...

Thank you for naming a drink for a Yo La Tengo reference other than Autumn Sweater, which bartenders seem to love. This looks interesting—I wonder whether it'll work with Noilly Prat.

Rafa,

Probably not - you need the elderflower underpinning of the Dolin. It certainly is interesting, though. My wife seemed to think it tasted like grape Fun-Dip. To me, it's almost like drinking a really good Muscadet - where it's almost neutral, but shimmers around the edges with flavor - only the flavors here are like that Japanese gummy Muscat candy.

Thanks,

Zach
