Aurora Bora Borealis

Aurora Bora Borealis cocktail with dark and light rums, cream of coconut, lime juice, orange juice, and orgeat syrup

The Aurora Bora Borealis is a Jeff “Beachbum” Berry original, from his book Beachbum Berry’s Grog Log. It’s a straightforward tiki cocktail, sweet and acidic with a rich coconut aftertaste.

You can play around with the rums you use here – Beachbum calls for a dark Jamaican rum and light Puerto Rican rum, but you could swap one out for a gold rum, or even a good spiced rum.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
