This recipe makes one cocktail and, according to Roy F. Guste, Jr., is actually older than Pat O’Brien’s:
1 oz lemon juice
4 oz dark rum
2 oz red passion fruit cocktail mix or Hawaiian Punch (seriously)
Orange slice and a cherry for garnish
Shake the lemon juice, rum and cocktail mix together and pour into a tall (preferably chilled) glass with crushed ice. Garnish with orange slice and maraschino cherry. Serve with a straw and enjoy.
Note: Add more lemon juice if you find the cocktail mix or Hawaiian Punch is too sweet for your taste. Happy Memorial Day and bon appetite ~
