Tiki Drink Recipes: The Volcano House Hot Buttered Rum Recipe

Tiki drink recipes: How to make a Tiki version of a Hot Buttered Rum called the Volcano House Hot Buttered Rum.

The classic Hot Buttered rum drink has been around for quite some time. This recipe dates back to the 1950’s, when Bob Ida invented the cocktail at the Volcano House Hotel in Hawaii. This is the tiki cocktail version from Jeff Berry. Hot buttered rum has been a favorite winter drink for many years and this is a nice variation of the old classic. The use of tea instead of coffee, also puts a nice twist in it.

Volcano House Hot Buttered Rum Recipe:
• 1.5 oz Dark Rum (Jamaican or Demerara rum)
• 3/4 oz Sugar
• 3/4 oz Lemon Juice
• 1/4 oz Maraschino
• Hot Black Tea
• Butter

Pre-heat a tiki mug. Add sugar, juice, maraschino and rum into the warm tiki mig.
Add the hot tea to the mug and stir. Float the butter on top of the drink.

Classic Tiki Drink Recipes: The Cuban Sangria Recipe

Tiki and Island Drink: How to make a Great Cuban Sangria for your Luau or Tiki Party.

The word Sangria gets it's name from the spanish word for blood because of the red or ruby color. Summer is the best time for Sangrias. Great Sangrias can be hard to find. This is because Latin families hold their recipes as family secrets handed down from parent to child.

A sangria is a mix of wine, tropical fruits, fruit juices and sometimes a extra spirit to give it a little kick. Liquors used are usually Brandy, Triple sec, or Rum. Sometimes sugar is added for a extra sweetness.

It is usually made with a red wine, but sometimes a white wine is used.

One of the secrets of a good Sangria is letting it sit and infuse. You can let it infuse for a few hours or a few weeks.

Cuban Sangria Recipe:

• 1 bottle burgundy or red wine
• 1/2 bottle of a light rum (Cruzan, Bacardi, etc.)
• 4 shots Cointreau or Triple Sec
• 6 shots vodka ( (Smirnoff, Grey Goose, Absolut, Skyy, etc.)
• 4 shots Grand Marnier
• 1 liter seltzer water
• 1 pineapple, sliced (or can)
• 4 Granny Smith apples, sliced
• 6 oranges, sliced
• 1 quart of pineapple juice
• 1 quart of orange juice
• 2 limes, sliced
• sugar to taste

Preparation:Slice the fruits and place in a container. Add the fruit juice. Add alcohol and then sugar. Before serving add ice and seltzer.
