After one sip, you won’t be in a tropical depression.

When you start mixing flavored rums in a fruitiful cocktail, you’re going to get something sweet and strong. The flavors mask the rum and you can end up with a drink that is nearly all liquor with a splash of juice and it still tastes great. Today’s drink is just that.

The drink is called The Caribbean Storm and was introduced to me by Castaway Scott. He posted this link from the Tipsy Bartender, a fun site that posts tons of great cocktail videos.

The name fits this glass of boom boom juice perfectly. Rum, rum, rum, and then the boom…Everclear. Yes, you read that right. Now if I was creating this drink I would probably not have chosen to put Everclear in it. Maybe 151 or some Jamaican Wray and Nephew, but that’s just me and my rum slanted mind.

Some other names that might work for this cocktail could be; Category 5, Eye of the Storm, Mother Nature’s Fury, I Wet My Pants…  Can you think of any?

Enjoy the Caribbean Storm!
