the Beachcomber, which appears in the famous 1947 Bartender's Guide by tiki legend Trader Vic (Victor Bergeron, Jr.), has a flavor with a hint of that telltale tiki funk.
1 12 oz Light rum
34 oz Orange liqueur, Cointreau
34 oz Lime juice
14 oz Maraschino Liqueur, Luxardo
18 oz Simple syrup (optional)
Shake, strain, up.
In Trader Vic's formulation, the Beachcomber is a blended drink with 2 ounces of rum. For this shaken-and-strained variation, the amount of spirit is dialed back a bit. If you choose to blend your Beachcombers over ice, try upping the rum to 2 ounces per serving
