Outrigger Cocktail

Brian discovered this cocktail recipe over the summer, and it’s been his go-to drink ever since. We haven’t been travelling with booze, but recently bought some over Christmas while we were camping at his brother’s house.

Outrigger Cocktail
BY JEFF “Beachbum” BERRY

2 oz Mount Gay Extra Old Rum
1 oz Cointreau
1/2 oz lemon juice

shake with ice
strain into a cocktail glass

We learned about stainless wine glasses when we met Bert and Janie in September, but I already had a wine glass solution. When the bottle of rum appeared in the trailer I seized the opportunity to order up some Stainless Martini Glasses. I think they’re pretty awesome and the Outrigger Cocktail is really good too.

    We are using the wrong rum to make this cocktail, using Mount Gay “Eclipse” when we should be using Mount Gay “Extra Old”. Jeff “Beachbum” Berry says this about the Outrigger, “as with cognac in a Sidecar, the older the rum you use in the Outrigger, the better it tastes!”

    Well you already have the rum, so I will give you my favorite daytime concoction for weather over 80 degrees Fahrenheit.


    4 parts Orange Juice
    4 parts Pineapple Juice
    2 parts Rum
    1 part Coconut Cream (not milk)
    1 part Galliano

    Everything goes into a blender with ice (you need the froth at the top).
