La Bomba (Tiki Version)

I can't think of this drink without reflecting on the 90s Ricky Martin sensation. This drink is accurately named "The Bomb" because of its intense herbal and liquor flavors. Making any cocktail with an ounce of Pernod, triple sec, and one of apricot brandy, not to mention a full pour of light rum, is really like mixing gasoline and TNT. That's why it is a tiki, in my mind.

This is the first time I used this mug I got from Archipelago on U Street. They have cool mugs for sale for anyone who wants to tiki at home.
  • 2 oz. light rum
  • 1 oz. apricot brandy
  • 1 oz. triple sec
  • 1 oz. Pernod
  • 1 oz. lemon juice
  • pineapple spear
Combine all ingredients except pineapple in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a grim faced tiki mug full of crushed ice. Garnish with pineapple spear.
