Big Bamboo "Jazzy" Mix

I told my friend over at 2SweetnSaxy, that I was going to do a drink recipe for her. This might be some strong stuff, but like Jazz it leaves you feeling sweet and mellow.

The "Big Bamboo," is the ultimate mellow drink. If you like rum, it is a must try.

The Big Bamboo is a tough [/link]shot that uses the two strongest rums. Shaking the sweet fruit flavors of the other ingredients hides the harshness of that combination here. This recipe makes 3-4 full shots, so it’s perfect for sharing with friends.


  • 2 oz 151-proof rum
  • 1 oz dark rum
  • 1/4 oz triple sec
  • 2 oz orange juice
  • 2 oz pineapple juice
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • dash of bitters


  1. Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice.
  2. Shake well.
  3. Strain into 3 or 4 shot glasses.

And "Try" to get up the next morning....

We've been drinking a lot of tequila at my house, but you've convinced me that we should switch to rum.
