Piranha Punch | Cocktail Party

Piranha Punch

The Piranha Punch is the creation of mixologist Tiki Lindy, invented for her Halloween “SpookTiki” event. It’s fruity, sweet, and just a touch bitter from Campari (although you could use any bitter citrus apéritif, including the sweeter Aperol).

This drink benefits a bold, full-bodied rum to stand up to the sweetness and cut through the rich guava nectar. Tiki Lindy calls for Lemon Hart 1804 Rum, but you can use any black, dark, demerara or aged rum you like.

The splash of grenadine at the end isn’t really for flavor; rather, it’s meant to evoke the bloody waters after a piranha feast! Save your good stuff; neon-red, low-quality grenadine is ideal here.



Shake all ingredients (except the grenadine) briefly with crushed ice. Pour unstrained into a tall glass or tiki mug. Top with more crushed ice and pour the grenadine over the ice.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
