It was surprisingly difficult to find a recipe for this drink that I was confident would be delicious. So, I combined this one from Epicurious with one I found in my copy of 1001 Cocktails. If you’re familiar with this drink, you know it is one seriously potent cocktail. It’s for that reason that this recipe only makes 2 servings. I love my drinks, but even I wouldn’t want to have more than 1 in an evening. If you’re daring, or expecting company, go ahead and make a double batch, but don’t say I didn’t warn you …


  • ¼ cup Light Rum
  • ¼ cup Dark Rum
  • ¼ cup Mango Nectar
  • ¼ cup Orange Juice
  • ¼ cup Grenadine Syrup
  • Juice of ½ a Lime
  • Juice of ½ a Lemon
  • Ice cubes
  • White Soda, chilled
  • Pineapple, Cherries, and/or Orange Slices, for garnish


  1. Mix all ingredients except ice in shaker. Add ice cubes, shake well, and strain mixture into two cocktail glasses filled with ice.
  2. Top with soda and serve with pineapple, cherries, and/or orange slices for garnish.
