So, have you guys heard about all this snow we’re having here in Buffalo? It’s been pretty crazy. We’re a hearty bunch here at KegWorks, and it’s not like we haven’t seen this stuff before, but at some point, enough is enough, you know what I mean?
Well, if Mother Nature won’t cut us some slack, we’re just going to have to take matters into our own hands and find a way to channel a little bit of tropical paradise amidst the lake effect flurries that have left half our fair city snowbound.
Luckily, we’ve got just the tool to help us out.
Ladies and gentlemen, meet Beachbum Berry’s Navy Grog Ice Cone Garnish Kit!
Alright, I hear you. “What is a Navy Grog?” “Who is Beachbum Berry?” Let me give you the short answers…
Jeff “Beachbum” Berry is a legend in the island-loving world of tiki party culture. He’s the author of several must-have books regarding tiki lore and a true aficionado of all things tropically alcoholic.
A Navy Grog is also a legend in the island-loving world of tiki party culture, but in a different way. This delicious rum cocktail is rumored to have been Frank Sinatra’s favorite whenever he visited the world-renowned tiki haunt, Don the Beachcomber’s (specifically, their Palm Springs location).
This potent elixir combines three kinds of rum with all kinds of deliciousness to kick you in the pants and transport your brain to some sandy oasis that isn’t covered in feet of snow. Here’s the recipe:
1 oz White Cuban or Puerto Rican rum,
1 oz Dark Jamaican rum
1 oz Demarara rum
3/4 oz Fresh lime juice
3/4 oz White grapefruit juice
1 oz Honey syrup mix (1 part honey dissolved into 1 part warm water)
3/4 oz Club soda
Shake rum, juice, and syrup in a cocktail shaker filled with ice until thoroughly chilled. Strain into a large double-old-fashioned glass or a tiki mug, prepared with an ice cone. Top with club soda and garnish with the fruits of your choosing.
But the best part of the Navy Grog? The one-of-a-kind ice cone that turns this from an ordinary Polynesian punch into a festive party in a glass. The ice cone sits directly inside your glass, and you feed the straw right through its frozen center into the heart of the luxurious liquid it’s chilling. And with Beachbum Berry’s Ice Cone Garnish Kit, you can create your own authentic ice cones with ease.
Just pack the metal cone with shaved ice.
Use the metal rod to poke a straw hole through the center.
Place it in the freezer for a few hours and voila! You’ve got yourself a beautiful, drink-perfecting ice cone that will make your tiki party the envy of anyone in a Hawaiian shirt.
Whether it’s snowing by you or not, doesn’t a little taste of sunshine and cool island breezes sound like a wonderful idea? Grab your Navy Grog Ice Cone Garnish Kit today and get ready to sip on something that will make your soul smile!
