I can’t let Tiki Month go by without posting a tall gin recipe. Gin’s one of my favorite tropical drink ingredients, whether it be with tonic and lots of fresh lime or one of the more elaborate mid-20th century classics like the Fog Cutter, the Suffering Bastard or any version of the Singapore Sling.

Here’s a seemingly smooth but potentially lethal one of my own, the Gin-Tiki. Beware the calm seas and don’t go down with the raft.


  • 2 oz dry gin
  • 1 oz gold Puerto Rican rum
  • 1/2 oz Velvet Falernum
  • 1 oz white grapefruit juice
  • 1 oz pineapple juice
  • 1 oz lime juice
Shake with ice cubes and strain into a 12-ounce collins glass. Fresh ice to fill. Mint garnish.
