This cocktail is known for its potent mix of rum and fruit juices, creating a bold and refreshing taste that is sure to impress your guests.
To make a Scorpion cocktail, you will need a few key ingredients and a shaker. Begin by filling your shaker with ice, then add 2 ounces of white rum, 1 ounce of brandy, 1 ounce of orange juice, 1 ounce of lemon juice, and 1 ounce of lime juice. Next, add 1 ounce of Orgeat syrup, which is an almond-flavored syrup commonly used in tiki drinks. Finally, add a dash of grenadine for a hint of sweetness.
Once all the ingredients are in the shaker, secure the lid tightly and shake vigorously for about 10-15 seconds. This will ensure that all the flavors are well combined and chilled. After shaking, strain the cocktail into a tall glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish with a fresh mint sprig and a citrus wheel, such as a lime or orange slice.
The Scorpion cocktail is best enjoyed with friends and can be served as a single drink or in a larger batch for a party. The combination of rum, brandy, and citrus juices creates a balanced and delicious beverage that is sure to transport you to a tropical paradise. So kick back, relax, and sip on a Scorpion cocktail for a taste of the islands.
