This is Trader Vic’s recipe except he used dark rum rather than gold rum. I also usually use homemade grenadine rather than cherry juice. Either way, there is good reason that this is one of the great Tiki drinks.
- 2 oz. Mount Gay Gold Rum
- ½ oz. lime juice
- ½ oz. pineapple juice
- ½ oz. simple syrup
- 1 t. maraschino cherry juice
- 3 oz. crushed ice
- Blend all ingredients for 5 sec.
- Pour unstrained into old fashioned glass
