ARG!!!! Whenever I drink rum, I feel like a pirate. I have this odd urge to go around plundering villages and set sail across the vast blue sea. So in due respect of piracy, I decided to make my adaption of a Shipwreck.
The Shopping List:
1.75 L of Admiral Nelson…$14.95
1 L of Country Time Strawberry Lemonade…$3.00
Variety pack of Fruit Barrels…$4.00
Leftover Orange Juice…priceless.
Grand Total: $21.95
A little more pricey than some of my other drinks, but I promise the taste is worth it. You’ll find yourself being castaway in the deliciousness.
3 Ice Cubes
3 Parts Admiral
2 Parts Strawberry Lemonade
1 Part Orange Juice
1 Part Lime Barrel
A normal Shipwreck consists of spiced rum, cranberry juice, orange juice and pineapple juice. I did not have several of the ingredients so I improvised and it tastes better than I expected.
My Shipwreck is sure to be a hit; after a few of these bad boys you’ll be sinking. The strawberry lemonade works with the orange juice and spiced rum to simulate a sort of coconuty-pina colada flavor. Everything blends well and there is nothing stronger than another flavor. On the hangover scale, I’d say a 3.5/5. Dark liquors are always sure to cause headache the next day and this has no exception. Set sails ye scurvy dogs.
