Bombo

Bombo pirate cocktail with ged or dark rum, spiced syrup, and nutmeg

Popular media would have you think that Caribbean pirates were singing “Yo-ho-ho” and drinking grog – but in truth, grog was favored by British Navy sailors, while the pirates themselves had Bombo.

Sailors and pirates both had to make do with the ingredients at hand, and in the Caribbean the spirit of choice was rum. Sailors added local citrus and sugar to their rations, while pirates went with sugar and readily-available spices.

Like pirates, Bombo isn’t picky. Choose any style of aged rum, add a spiced syrup, water it down a tad, and cover the whole drink in a blanket of nutmeg. Yarr!

Ingredients

Instructions

Add the rum and syrup to a short glass and stir to mix. Add a little water – we like to use about half as much water as rum. Fill the glass with ice, stir again, and grate the nutmeg over the top of the glass.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
