Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • 1 tsp Grenadine: Adds a touch of sweetness and a beautiful, layered effect to your drink.
  • 1/2 Splash Lime Juice: For that perfect hint of zesty freshness.
  • 1 oz Orange Juice: Contributes a bright, citrusy flavor.
  • 2 oz Pineapple Juice: Brings a tropical sweetness that pairs wonderfully with the other juices.
  • 1 oz Coconut Rum: Adds a creamy, coconut flair, enhancing the tropical vibes.
  • 2 oz Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey: The star of the show, providing a warm, spicy kick that elevates the entire drink.

Optional Garnish:

  • A slice of pineapple or an orange wheel
  • A cherry

How to Make the Tiki Torch:

  1. Start with the Grenadine: Pour 1 teaspoon of grenadine into the bottom of your glass. This will create a lovely red base.
  2. Add the Juices: Combine the lime juice, orange juice, and pineapple juice in a shaker with ice. Shake well to mix and chill.
  3. Layer the Mixture: Carefully pour the juice mixture over the grenadine in the glass, allowing the colors to slowly blend.
  4. Introduce the Coconut Rum: Add 1 ounce of coconut rum into the glass. The coconut flavor will start to mingle with the juices, enhancing the tropical essence.
  5. Top with Fireball: Pour 2 ounces of Fireball cinnamon whiskey on top. The Fireball not only adds a unique, spicy twist but also a warming sensation that contrasts beautifully with the cool fruit juices.
  6. Garnish and Serve: Finish off your Tiki Torch with a slice of pineapple or an orange wheel, a cherry, and of course, a little umbrella for that ultimate tiki look.
