The Drunken Monkey Cocktail

"Beware. This one’s all delicious Caribbean refreshment that hides a volcano-sized kick. Makes a great punch too. "

6 ounces orange-pineapple juice blend

3 ounces coconut rum

1 ounce spiced rum

4–5 dashes bitters

1–2 teaspoons maraschino cherry juice

fresh ground nutmeg

maraschino cherries, for garnish

lime slices, for garnish

fresh pineapple wedges, for garnish

Crank up some Jimmy Buffet, grab an ice-filled cocktail shaker and pour in the juice, both rums, and the bitters. Shake long enough to sing a chorus of “Cheeseburger in Paradise,” about 30 seconds. Divide into 2 iced tumblers or one tall Tiki, but only if you’re going to be sitting down for the next hour. Now drizzle in the cherry juice and watch it settle to the bottom. Garnish and dust with fresh nutmeg.
