Palm Beach

1 Oct

The Palm Beach is a cool, summery drink, great for a weekend lounge-about. Let me paint you a picture. It’s a lazy, cloudy afternoon. You have a few friends over lounging on your patio chatting about nothing important. And there’s a cool breeze, of course. <insert Palm Beach> It’s also pretty easy to make keeping it in-line with the theme of the day: lazing.

What you’ll need is rum, gin, pineapple juice, ice, and a cocktail shaker.

Palm Beach - What You Need

Tanqueray Distilled Gin; Ice; Bacardi Gold Rum; Fruit Tree Pineapple; Cocktail Shaker & Strainer

The Recipe:
2 shots rum
2 shots gin
2 shots pineapple juice
Ice

Firstly, fill up your shaker till full with ice. Next, pour your shots of rum, gin, and pineapple juice into the shaker over the ice. (If you plan to use Fruit Tree Pineapple Juice, you MUST remember to shake the can, an important step we overlooked. Left us wondering why the juice was so flat at the start.) Once everything’s in the shaker, shake until well frosted and everything’s icy cold!

Strain into a tumbler and serve!

Strain!

The Palm Beach has a pretty high alcohol content so go slow on these babies. Taste wise,  it’s rather strong. The gin gives a really nice floral note at the back-end, it’s also not very sweet as the pineapple juice adds only a hint of that acidic punch. Make yourself a Palm Beach to kickstart your weekend and whatever happens, at least it’s the freakin’ weekend.
