Sumatra Kula

Sumatra Kula cocktail with lightly-aged rum, honey syrup, and grapefruit, orange, and lime juices

The Sumatra Kula is a classic Don the Beachcomber recipe, dug up and refined by Jeff “Beachbum” Berry. It’s a rare tiki cocktail, in that it lacks pineapple juice and takes its sweetness from honey rather than sugar. Aside from those details, it’s a fairly straightforward tiki drink that takes most of its flavors from a blend of three citrus juices.

Beachbum’s updated recipe called for “lightly aged” rum. If you don’t have one that perfectly fits the bill, your favorite light or aged rum will do just fine.
