Bahama Whammy (Original Recipe)

I'm riffing on the Bahama Mamma, that rum drink with all the tropical fruit and a few rums to boot. This time I'm leaving rum out and going with fruity whiskies. MurLarkey orange and banana whiskies are not fake flavors: they are made by soaking dried oranges and bananas in barrels of white whiskey so the flavors are all natural. 

That really helps when you are going for fresh squeezed fruit juice and coconut puree that makes you feel like you are on a beach somewhere where the fruit is growing on nearby trees. The drink is also more authentically fresh without having the fake red color of a Bahama Mamma

I still have a soft spot in my heart for that Jimmy Buffet-style of boat drink cocktail, but this is healthier and local and all organic when it comes to MurLarkey products. They call it "farm to flask" and I'll admit that it still tastes like unicorns and rainbows. 

  • 1 oz. MurLarkey orange whiskey
  • 1 oz. MurLarkey banana whiskey
  • .5 oz. lime juice
  • .5 oz. lemon juice
  • 1 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1 oz. orange juice
  • .5 oz. cream of coconut
  • .5 oz. falernum
  • lemon and lime wheels as garnishes

Combine liquid ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled pilsner. Garnish with the fruit wheels.
