Admirable cocktail!

Only one sting of Scorpion, please, and…

I interested very much for compose overpowering drink last summer. I try many variations of Hurricane (from 2 oz to 8 oz of rum), Mai Tai, Fog Cutter… But I missed one interesting drink – Scorpion. Is modern classic cocktail was invented somewhere in California (it is right?). It is very refreshing taste and effect like scorpion sting (but no deathful). Unfortunately I don`t have time for good investigation of this cocktail.



60 ml light or gold rum
30 ml brandy
15 ml orgeat
60 ml fresh orange juice
45 ml fresh lemon juice
Blend with a lot of ice. Serve in highball glass with ice, garnish with flag and something like this…

I use Angostura 1919 Premium rum from Trinidad and 100 g of crushed ice. The result is extremely tasty and refreshing.
