Treasure Island Special

This (I think so) tiki-cocktail was found on my favorite CocktailDB. It has some strange things in recipe. 15 ml of sugar… Hm-m-m-m… 1 oz of simple syrup? It seems so (very!!!) sweet drink, but I use sweetened pineapple juice and no sugar :)

Treasure Island Special

30 ml light rum
30 ml Jamaican rum
7 ml orange curacao
7 ml peach brandy
15 ml fresh lime juice
60 ml pineapple juice
15 ml sugar
2 drops Angostura bitters
Shake. Strain over ice in a double rocks glass.

Admirable! Treasure Island Special Cocktail is well-balanced and has very interesting piquant rum flavor.

My Zombie #7

I think Zombie is amazing cocktail. I investigate recipe of this cocktail during long time, and I understand that Zombie is a complex, well-balanced strong tiki-drink with a lot of variations. It is good for me. I have not falernum or 151-proof rum, which are mentioned in many recipes, but I have many excellent componenets such as aged damerara rums or exotic liqueurs, which I would try in this cocktail.

I construct own Zombie recipe with mix of four citrus juices, passion fruit syrup, exotic orange liqueur and four rums. Please try it and comment my creations.


Zombie #7

10 ml fresh lime juice
10 ml fresh lemon juice
10 ml fresh grapefruit juice
50 ml fresh orange juice
15 ml passion fruit syrup
1 tsp. grenadine
30 ml BOLS Red Orange liqueur
20 ml white rum
20 ml gold rum
20 ml dark rum
1 dash Angostura bitters
15 ml aged damerara rum
Shake all ingredients (except damerara rum) in ice-filled shaker. Strain in to zombie glass (or hurricane) with crushed ice. Float damerara rum. Garnish with exotic fruit.


Admirable!!! It is beautifull drink. I think, what I would try many variations of Zombie on this summer.
