Light(er) Beach Blogging Today

There were some problems with the Caribbean Smoked Torch drinks I was whipping up.

Here's the recipe if you're brave!


* 1/2 oz. Brandy
* 3/4 oz. Liqueur, melon
* 3/4 oz. Liqueur, raspberry
* 3/4 oz. Rum, coconut
* 1/2 oz. Rum, dark
* 1/2 oz. Rum, overproof/151 proof
* 1 oz. Cranberry Juice
* 1 oz. Orange Juice
* 1 oz. Pineapple Juice

Mixing Instructions

Combine all ingredients except overproof rum in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake until chilled. Add overproof rum to a snifter and light it on fire. Carefully warm the snifter with the rum, rotating it slowly, until the rum burns itself out. Then pour the shaker contents into the hot snifter. If you do it right, you will get an aromatic cloud of smoke! If you do it wrong you get the Bikini Atoll.

My gorgeous girl, it is the cranberry juice, I promise you.

Take it down to 1/2 oz and there will be no further pyrotechnics... except the ones you ignite for me perhaps.
