Pieces of Eight

Pieces o Eight tropical cocktail with rum, passion fruit syrup, lemon juice, and lime juice

At first glance, Pieces of Eight seems like it has too much citrus, too much sweetener, and maybe not enough rum. It works, though – with every part of the drink held in tart, tangy balance.

Pieces of Eight was the flagship cocktail at the Pieces of Eight restaurant in Marina del Rey, California, back in the early 60s. Though the restaurant is long gone, the drink lives on thanks to Jeff “Beachbum” Berry, who immortalized the recipe in Beachbum Berry Remixed.
