When I was a student at The University of Texas at Austin in the late 1970s, there was a bar called Chelsea Street Pub adjacent to an indoor ice-skating rink in Northcross Mall. My brother and I went there a few times and enjoyed many of their specialty cocktails, including Zombies and Funerals, sometimes while listening to live music. Sadly, Chelsea Street Pub is no more (at least not in Austin), but this recipe tastes close to what I remember.
- 1 ounce pineapple juice
- 1 ounce orange juice
- 1 ounce lime juice
- 1/2 ounce grenadine
- 2 ounces light rum
- 1 ounce dark rum
- 1/2 ounce apricot brandy
- 1 tsp sugar (or 1/2 ounce simple sugar)
- 1 orange slice
- 1/2 ounce 151 rum (an optional, flammable garnish)
- Mix all the ingredients (except the orange slice) over ice in a shaker, mixing thoroughly.
- Pour or strain the liquid into a cocktail glass.
- If desired, gently float the 151 rum onto the liquid in the glass and light it with a match (because I'm a novice, I can rarely get this to work).
- Add the orange slice to the edge of the glass and serve.
- Take the keys away from anyone who drinks one or more of these!
