Beachbum’s Own

Beachbum's Own cocktail with light rum, Demerara rum, Licor 43, orange juice, lemon juice, pineapple juice and passion fruit syrup

Jeff “Beachbum” Berry is the godfather of the modern tiki revival, a mixological Indiana Jones who travels around the globe to unearth and document long-lost tiki recipes.

When noted tiki-mug sculptor Bosko Hrnjak designed a mug in Beachbum’s honor, Beachbum himself christened it with an all-new recipe: the Beachbum’s Own.

The original recipe calls for Demerara rum, a usually-dark style known for its burnt-sugar flavors and complex nose. A regular dark rum will do if that’s all you have, but if you plan to make more drinks like Beachbum’s Own, a good Guyanese Demerara rum is a worthy investment for your liquor cabinet.

Passion fruit puree is ideal, but if you can’t get your hands on that, passion fruit syrup will do. If you do opt to use syrup, try it first with a little bit less than called for in the recipe below, since it is generally sweeter than a puree.

Gut mit Luft nach oben

Ich war auf der Suche nach einer Cocktail Datenbank mit der ich mir zuverlässig die Drinks anzeigen lassen kann, für die ich auch die Zutaten im Hause habe. Mit Cocktail Flow klappt das leider nicht verlässlich. Dieses Programm macht das vorbildlich und vor allem listet es die Cocktails auch danach auf, wo mir noch eine, zwei usw. Zutaten fehlt. So kann ich auch immer schauen was ich mir ggf. noch kaufen sollte. Die Auswahl an Getränken ist gut, jedoch mit wenig Sirup-haltigen. Hier würd ich mir mehr Rezepte wünschen wo man die div. Fruchtsirupe einsetzen kann. Auch gibt es leider keine Möglichkeit Cocktails als Favoriten zu kennzeichnen oder das Rezept zu exportieren. Da das Programm nur in Englisch ist muss man in der Zutatenliste manchmal googlen was damit gemeint ist. Mit ein paar Rezepten mehr, Favoritenfunktion und Lokalisierung gibt es fünf Sterne.
Translation: I was looking for a cocktail database with which I can reliably display the drinks for which I also have the ingredients in the house. Unfortunately, this does not work reliably with cocktail flow. This program does the exemplary and above all it lists the cocktails also after, where I still missing one, two etc. ingredients. So I can always look what I should possibly buy. The selection of drinks is good, but with little syrup-containing. Here I would want more recipes where you can use the div. Fruit syrups. Unfortunately, there is no way to mark cocktails as favorites or to export the recipe. Since the program is only in English you have to googling in the list of ingredients sometimes what is meant by that. With a few more recipes, favorites and localization, there are five stars.
