The Shellback Rum Tiki Screwdriver is a Tiki drink variation on the classic Screwdriver long drink. Tiki Screwdriver uses Shellback Silver Rum, passion fruit juice, ruby red grapefruit juice and grenadine in addition to the usual Screwdriver ingredients. The recipe could be multiplied for pitcher or punch bowl use for an ideal serve for National Rum Punch Day coming up later this week.

Tiki Screwdriver Garnish Tricks
The purpose of layering the fruit garnish in this drink is two-fold. Layered garnishes are eye pleasing as they carry varied color throughout the cocktail. Layering fruit throughout the drink also allows the fruit to marinate while the drink is being consumed, much like fruit in Sangria drinks. This gives an extra pleasing fruit nibble at the end of the drink.
The Tiki Screwdriver is refreshing for spring and summer, relaxing on a warm summer beach and a vacation reminder cocktail.
