Scorpion Cocktail

"There’s no sting here. Just a straightforward mix—supposedly from Trader Vic himself—that will satisfy those seeking a more simple, day-in-the-sun, slushy refresher than the usual spicy profusion of a Tiki cocktail."

1 ½ ounces lemon juice

2 ounces orange juice

½ ounce orgeat

1 ounce brandy

2 ounces white rum

On this one, you can take it easy and let the blender do all the work, just as the Tiki gods intended. Start by pouring everything in with one scoop of cubes. Blend on low for 10 seconds or till the cubes look more like crushed ice. Now jack it up to high for 5–10 seconds until the whole mixture is delightful slushy. Pour into your favorite grinning Tiki and cool down.
