Aurora Bora Borealis
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.
- 1 part Dark rum or Spiced rum or Demerara rum
- 1 part Light rum or Aged rum
- ½ part Cream of coconut
- ½ part Lime juice
- ¼ part Orange juice
- 1 tsp Orgeat
Add all ingredients to a blender, along with a cupful of crushed or pebble ice. Blend on low speed for 15 seconds, and pour unstrained into a large goblet or tiki mug. Garnish with citrus, flowers, and any other over-the-top tropical decorations you have on hand.
