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.

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!
