Rodeo Drive Rammer


This is a fun, and a little silly, drink to salute the crazy that is part of driving in Los Angles. Really, this is a cocktail that is part deluxe, part gaudy, and all American--just like Beverly Hills itself.

Here is a  punch drink with the usual rum. falernum and orange juice: but it's not stereotypically American enough until you add peach liqueur and bourbon. In fact this drink flips the tables with bourbon being the base spirit in a punch, which I like. I happened to have a dash left of Evan Williams peach bourbon, which worked for the peach brandy that was specified in the recipe. 

Go ahead and make this one if you are in the mood for day drinking, just don't get behind the wheel.

  • 1 1/2 oz. bourbon (Ancient Age used)
  • 1/2 oz. Jamaican rum (George Bowman used)
  • 1/2 oz. curacao (triple sec used)
  • 1/2 oz. peach brandy (Evan Williams peach used)
  • 3 oz. orange juice
  • 1 tsp. falernum or orgeat (homemade falernum used)
  • pineapple slice and cherry garnishes
  • club soda
 Combine all liquid ingredients except for soda in a shaker or blender. Shake or blend and pour into a Hurricane glass. Top with soda and garnish with fruit.
