The Vicious Virgin is an old Don the Beachcomber classic, a simple tiki cocktail with a citrus-forward flavor. It was likely named in reference to Virgin Islands rum – so if you have any on hand, do use it here.
Since it’s such a simple recipe (for a tiki drink, anyway), it’s a great canvas for experimentation. Try swapping the light rum for a gold rum, or try a black or spiced rum in place of the dark!
- 1 part Light rum or Aged rum
- ½ part Dark rum or Aged rum or Black rum or Demerara rum or Pineapple rum
- ½ part Triple sec
- ¾ part Lime juice
- ½ part Falernum syrup
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into an ice-filled short glass. Garnish with a lime wedge and a cherry.
