Beachbum’s Own

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.



Shake with ice and strain into a tall glass or tiki mug filled with crushed ice.

Great drinks-great app

Great cocktail app. Very good list of drinks that actually are well made and tasty. I have used other apps that just were overloaded with tons of junk drinks. It feels like the creators of this app actually enjoyed making the drinks and decided which were good enough to add to the list. Really appreciate the perpetual updates drinks listing too. Hate paying for things more than once.
