The Tiki Bowl cocktail was originally created by Victor Bergon. The original recipe calls for one ounce each light Puerto Rican rum and dark Jamaica rum. I’ve changed the ratios to adapt to the strength of the DonQ 151 rum. This recipe also calls for a gardenia garnish. I don’t have any of those lying around, so I used an orange wedge.

About DonQ 151 Rum

DonQ 151 Rum 151 rum is also good for mixing. It adds an extra kick to cocktails that might otherwise call for regular 80 proof rum. 151 rums are traditionally used for flamed drinks. I’m not a huge fan of lighting my liquor on fire. Primarily because I would probably end up with singed hair and charred fingers. That wouldn’t be pretty. Should you decide to light your liquor on fire, do it responsibly of course.

With that said, 151 rum is also good for mixing. It adds an extra kick to cocktails that might otherwise call for regular 80 proof rum. So which cocktails would be good with DonQ 151 Rum? Try Tiki style drinks that contain lots of fruit flavor. Or use it as a rum float in a Pina Colada. The Scorpion Punch would be good as well. It’s excellent for a group since it yields 12 servings.
