This Florida Keys creation has many delicious variations but the original is a classic tiki favorite!



1 ounce white rum

1 ounce dark or aged rum

1 ounce banana liqueur

1 ounce blackberry liqueur 

1 ounce pineapple juice

1 ounce orange juice

Splash of grenadine

Splash of overproof rum

Orange slice or pineapple slice for garnish


  1. Add two scoops of fresh ice to a cocktail shaker
  2. Pour in all wet ingredients except the overproof rum and shake for 30 seconds
  3. Strain into a hurricane glass
  4. Add a dash of overproof rum on top
  5. Add garnish


This drink can be blended if you prefer. Instead of a cocktail shaker, simply place all ingredients in a blender and hit the button!

Don't be afraid to go a little wild with the garnishes. I like to use an orange slice, pineapple slice and cocktail cherries as well as a colorful umbrella.
