Top Notch Volcano

We wanted to put a lot of love into this drink so we juiced a fresh pineapple, saving some smaller pieces for decoration. Juicing a pineapple is a bit messy, and a bit time consuming to be honest. But the juice extracted is so good it’s well worth the effort.

Norwegian Paralysis

This tiki drink is from Smuggler’s Cove in San Francisco. We love how they incorporate aquavit in a tiki cocktail, and the truth is it pairs surprisingly well with the pineapple juice.

Merciless Virgin

The Merciless Virgin, adapted by Smuggler’s Cove, is a tiki drink with Cherry Heering liqueur in it. Still being a very typical tiki drink it also incorporates rum, sugar and spices in a rather tropical blend.

Leap Year

The recipe for the Leap Year we found in Robyn M. Feller’s book “The Complete Bartender”. This book with more than 2 000 recipes in it was published 1990. We found it in a bookstore selling used books in Chicago. Couldn’t resist buying it and start recreating some of these 1990s cocktails.
