    Light RumĀ 

  2. 1 Part Dry Vermouth

    Dry Vermouth

    A strong wine, that has a sweet-bittery taste of herbs. You cannot make a dry Martini, or Vodka Martini, without it.

  3. 1 Part Peach Liqueur

    Peach Liqueur

    Not seldomly, peach liqueur has an undertone of cognac. It should probably be on the top ten list of your liqueur shopping list, since it adds subtle summer flavors to your creations.

  4. 1 Slice Lime

    Lime

    Lime is a common garnish that usually is sliced, wedged, quartered, muddled or peeled. Almost a must have in the bar.

The Reverb Crash

This drink was the wining Tiki cocktail from a gathering of Tiki-ologists and documented on the excellent Tiki site TikiRoom.com. Make the drink, check out the site.

By Kick-the-Reverb

Ok -This is what I came up with:
(remember I wanted something that used a lot of grapefruit juice):

4 Oz Grapefruit Juice
1.5 Oz Passion Fruit Syrup
.75 Oz Fresh Lime Juice
.75 Spoon (Not Oz!!) Orgeat Syrup*
1 Oz Light Rum (Cuban or Virgin Island)
1 Oz Myers’s Dark Jamaican Rum

Put in a shaker with half a cup of crushed ice, shake well and put in a Tiki mug – I guess a 14-16 Oz one , add crushed Ice to fill. Garnish with, eh- I dunno – half a grapefruit, ok, no – with a mint sprig.

* You can use more Orgeat if you want – it depends how strong the taste of the syrup is. The idea is to just feel a bit of it. I used Monin brand which is very strong.
