Olmec Colossal Grog

Olmec Colossal Grog tropical cocktail with blanco tequila, allspice liqueur, guava juice, lime juice, grapefruit juice, and simple syrup

Olmec Colossal Grog (what a name!) is a deliciously fruity, spiced tiki cocktail from Cocktail Virgin blogger Frederic Yarm (also the author of the fabulous Drink & Tell series of books about Boston cocktail culture).

Named for the fabulously huge heads carved by the ancient Olmec people of Mesoamerica, the drink itself lives up to the enormity of its namesake, with huge punchy flavors of guava, citrus, spice, and the vegetal notes of blanco tequila. It’s fine in a glass – and quite pretty, if you have pink guava juice and pink grapefruits – but it’s even better in a tiki mug carved to look like a stone head.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake with crushed ice and pour unstrained into a tall glass or tiki mug. Top with more crushed ice as needed and garnish with a big sprig of mint, slapped between your palms to release more scent compounds.

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!
