Need a name for this cocktail

Sitting around after pizza and Idol (on DVR) with TikiWife and figured I would whip up a tasty cocktail using what I had on hand. I gathered up some supplies: Ron Barcelo Dominican rum, an orange, some fresh mint, and some almond extract. Setting my glass aside to chill I tossed the following into a mixing glass:

2 oz Ron Barcelo
3 orange wedges worth of juice
1/2 tsp almond extract

I gave the ingredients a stir then poured them into my glass, ice and all. For garnish I squeezed and dropped in another lime wedge and a sprig of mint.

The initial taste was full of almond so I squeezed in the other half of orange.

I am sipping on the result. While tasty it still needs a little less almond and maybe some bitters.

So my final recipe for the Thursday Night Cocktail Experiment is as follows.

2 oz Ron Barcelo
1 orange, juiced (reserving a wedge for garnish)
1/4 tsp almond extract
Sprig of mint
Dash of bitters (optional)

Aloha nui loa!
