A few weeks ago we threw a Haunted Luau, which doubled as a housewarming and an early Halloween party. On top of large quantities of food and treats, I made several pitchers of new cocktails to try out with my guests. The first to go was a batch of Murderous Mai Tai’s.. a dangerously delicious mix of Sailor Jerry Rum, fruit juice, and grenadine to give it a sweet taste and killer appearance! Make one just for you or whip up a large batch for your next Halloween party!
(makes one drink)
2oz (2 shots) Sailor Jerry Rum
1oz orange curacao
1oz pineapple juice
Juice from one lime
Maraschino cherries for garnish
Combine all ingredients except grenadine in a cocktail shaker. Shake like hell and pour over ice.
Add the shot of grenadine (a tad bit more for a sweeter taste and ‘bloodier’ look), garnish with cherries, and serve!
