Tiki cocktail drinks: Death in the South Pacific Recipe.

Tiki Drink Recipes: How to make the Death in the South Pacific cocktail with recipe and information.
This Tiki Cocktail won the 2010 Tales of the Cocktail Tiki Punch-up competition.

This is a complex and exotic tiki drink for your tiki bar. It is rather complex to make, but the effort is worth it. The Death in the South Pacific has won a few Tiki drink contests, which demonstrates the caliber of this tiki cocktail. A must try drink for any tiki cocktail adventurer. Death in the South Pacific was invented by Washington bartender Evan Martin. Here is what Evan has to say about the name; “The drink’s name is a play on Love in the South Pacific and Death in the Afternoon."

Here is what tiki expert Jeff Berry had to say; “This drink hits all the contest requirements on the nose: It creatively mixes multiple rums, sweeteners, and citrus to “tikify” the Planter’s Punch template; it has a full-bodied, layered, but not overcomplicated flavor; and its garnish shows theatrical flair, cleverly referencing the drink name.” This drink is a favorite to many.

This tiki cocktail takes a bit of prep, but is well worth it.


Death in the South Pacific Recipe:

0.75 oz. Appleton Estate Extra 12 Year Old Rum
0.75 oz. Rhum Clement VSOP Rum
0.5 oz. Grand Marnier
0.33 oz. Trader Tiki Orgeat Syrup

3 dashes Absinthe (Lucid Absinthe, Le Tourment Vert, Pernod, Kubler, etc.)
0.5 oz. Fresh lime juice
0.5 oz. Fresh lemon juice
0.5 oz. Fee Brothers Grenadine
0.5 oz. Cruzan Blackstrap Rum

Mixing Instructions: Mix all of the ingredients except for the grenadine and Cruzan Blackstrap Rum in a mixing glass with crushed ice. Swizzle the drink until cold and mixed. Pour in the grenadine. Overfill the glass with crushed ice and then pour in the Cruzan Blackstrap rum.
