  • 2 1/2 Cups Pineapples, Apples, and Mangos, Chopped
  • 200 ML Blue Dot Ciroc
  • 500 ML Malibu Rum
  • 200 ML Coconut Ciroc
  • 600 ML Pineapple Juice
  • 200 ML Grape Juice

How I came up with the Tropical Storm

Pretty much I was trying to come up with the perfect mix for an event called Tigerfest (it's a festival at Towson University and you pretty much drink all day and go to a concert..LOL). I mainly wanted to focus on a cocktail using Rum and Vodka. However, I didn't want to spend such a crazy amount of money. I already had a decent amount of Ciroc left for the base so I decided to create a mix with Pineapples and Apples to soak into the Vodka. I cut them all up individually and slowly put them into the mix. I let those soak in the Vodka for about two hours then I proceeded to go to the Grocery and Liquor Store and get Coconut Ciroc (200 ML) and a 750 ML bottle of Malibu Rum to soften it up and add even more flavor to it. Realize that the bottle I had on deck was an empty bottle of 1.75L of Coconut Ciroc.

I immediately mixed the Malibu Rum in and I think I put over 500ML in there. After that I decided to top the liquor off with some Coconut Ciroc. Basically, there was a good 1 L of Alcohol in the drink. It was potent enough! I decided to put the Orange Banana Pineapple Juice in there to fill it up! I put it in the mini fridge down there and let everything soak until Thursday. It was Saturday, April 21th, 2012. At any rate, I made sure I shook it up every day, so everything would mix correctly.

On that Thursday morning after I went to the barbershop, I decided to try it out and it tasted great. I actually had a cup or two of it, but I decided what would really set this off is a good float of Grape Juice. This made everything taste really great because the Grape Juice complemented the fruits really well and gave it a great color! I posted it on Pinterest some time ago, and it got a lot of repins.

Also, when I got to my friend's spot on the night before Tigerfest, I put a few shots of Everclear in the mix to add even more power to the drink. I let it freeze for the night and it not only changed color because I let the Grape fully dissolve and I poured another small batch of something in the mix, but it froze over. It was perfect because it turned into a nice slushie!

Once a lot of people started drinking it. I mixed a bit of jungle juice and other things to it, and put it in the freezer. It became a very nice slushie with some frozen fruits inside. An excellent treat. You can see that below! Thanks!

I actually have a few more mixes including a HUGE JUNGLE JUICE MIX!!! You should check those out on my blog Great Cocktail Recipes

      It can be a little pricey, but you can still use regular vodka, a coconut flavored vodka, and a coconut rum and use maybe 25-30 bucks with the fruits and pineapple juice included. I did use some premium ingredients, though. Thanks for the comment.

      Wow, looks like an expensive concoction, especially when you put it in a bottle like that. Sounds delicious as well. Voting this Useful.

      Thanks for the compliment. It was really spur of the moment when I decided to add a bit of Grape Juice to give it that nice Summer evening Tropical look. It really was a hit at the party I made it for...there was barely any left when I came back! LOL.

      Thanks for the comment. That's the reason why I called it the Tropical Storm. It looks really beautiful from the outside, but once you get some of that into your system, it may cause a few problems if you aren't careful ;).
