Ingredients

  • 3 ounces of pineapple juice
  • 2 ounces of orange juice
  • 1 oz dark rum plus
  • 1 oz coconut rum
  • 1 oz spiced rum
  • splash of grenadine

Garnish

  • ½ ounce dark rum to splash on top optional
  • Lime slices
  • Maraschino Cherries

Instructions

  • In an ice filled glass, combine the pineapple juice, orange juice and rums. Gently stir.
  • Slowly pour in a splash of grenadine. I like to pour over a spoon that is upside down with the tip near the glass. The grenadine will sink to the bottom.
  • Splash 1/2 ounce of the dark rum on the top (optional).
  • Garnish with a slice of lime and a maraschino cherry. Pretend you're in the tropics.

Notes

To Make Grenadine:
  • 1 1/2 cups pomegranate juice
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 lime (or lemon), juiced
  1. Combine the two ingredients over medium heat and stir until the sugar has dissolved.
  2. Turn the heat to low and let it simmer until the mixture thickens to your liking. If you overdo it, you can always add back in a bit of water.
  3. Remove from heat and cool slightly and then add the lime juice if using. Refrigerate until cold before adding to cocktails.
