Tiki Cocktail drinks: The "Martian Sunblock" recipe, a new school tiki drink.

Tiki Drink Recipes: How to make the Tiki Cocktail drink called the Martian Sunblock.
Like many tiki cocktail drinks, this one requires a bit of preparation to make.
But well worth it for your tiki lounge list of cocktails.

This is a complex tasting drink the gin gives it a freshness, the rum it's depth. And the apricot and papaya nectar blend well together and give it a tropical sweetness. Do not overuse the Angostura bitters, a few dashes is all you need.

Martian Sunblock Recipe:
• 2 oz Gin (Bombay Sapphire, Tanqueray, Beefeater, etc.)
• 1/2 oz Wray and Nephew overproof rum, 151
• 1/4 oz pimento dram
• 1 oz apricot nectar
• 1 oz papaya nectar
• 1/2 oz lime juice
• 1/2 oz simple syrup (bar syrup, sugar water)
• 1-3 dashes Angostura bitters

Shake all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice until nice and cold.
Strain into a class with crushed ice.
