Step 1: You will need…

  • 40 ml gold rum
  • 40 ml light rum
  • 25 ml gin
  • 10 ml amaretto
  • 150 ml orange juice , or the juice of 2 oranges

  • 1 squeezer
  • 1 shaker
  • 1 strainer
  • 1 glass
  • 1 short straw 

 Step 2: Prepare the cocktail

 Half fill the shaker with ice.


If you don't want to use a measure why don't you just free-pour the alcohol right from the bottle?

First, pour out a large splash or 40 millilitres of Gold Rum over the ice. Next, add a large splash, 40 millilitres of Light rum, a splash or 25 millilitres of gin, and about 10 ml of amaretto. Now pour on 150 millilitres of orange juice, add a dash of grenadine.

Step 3: Shake the cocktail, strain, and garnish, and serve

Place the strainer on the shaker and add 3 large ice cubes to a highball glass and strain the drink over the ice. Take a slice of orange, and cut a groove into the flesh of the fruit. Place this on the side of the glass and add a straw. Enjoy
