  • 25ml dark rum (or a mixture of dark rum and golden rum)
  • 25ml white rum (or a mixture of white rum and overproof rum)
  • 50ml lime juice
  • 150ml pineapple juice
  • ice
  • 1 tsp grenadine

For the garnish

  • wedge of orange



    One of the best-known citrus fruits, oranges aren't necessarily orange - some varieties are…

  • maraschino cherries
  • mint sprig



    There are several types of mint, each with its own subtle difference in flavour and appearance.…


  1. Pour the rums and fruit juices into a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake hard until the outside of the shaker feels really cold. 

  2. Strain the mixture into a tall glass or hurricane glass filled with ice, then slowly pour in the grenadine to colour the drink.

  3. Skewer the orange wedge and cherries on a cocktail stick. Garnish the drink with mint sprigs and the skewered fruit.
