Tortola Gold

What a discovery! I really enjoyed the interplay of tropical flavors, enhanced by rum and spread out and fortified by vodka. This long frozen drink really fits into the category of boat drinks, blended tropical drinks that get you smashed in the sun. The funny thing is that La Grande Passion used to be considered the easy solution to getting passion fruit flavor into your boat drink, something so commonplace at one time that it was served up to tourists. Now you can hardly find it and I have to make it myself to be able to pull off this one time mass marketed cocktail!
  • 1 oz. vodka (Smirnoff #57 used)
  • 1 oz. gold rum (Vitae barrel aged rum used)
  • 1/2 oz. la Grande Passion (homemade used)
  • 2 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1/2 oz. oz. lemon juice
  • mint sprigs
Combine liquid ingredients in a blender with ice. Blend until smooth and pour into a chilled Collins glass. Garnish with mint sprigs.
