We discovered this cocktail from the fine folks at Tuxedo No. 2, who seet out to make a tiki drink that wasn't quite so sweet. To quote them:

We created the Mariner’s Ghost for rainy days when most beachgoers fold up the umbrella and bolt for the car. It’s grassy and warm, like the smell of the beach after an afternoon shower.

The mango, grapefruit, and allspice add interesting twists on the typical tiki flavor palette: mango puree is recommended due to the texture and flavor, but jam or juice can be substituted in a pinch.
