Rum from the top of the world
 
 
Khukri Recipes

Rum is the base for many of the more way-out cocktail concoctions on offer today, its heady richness contributing to the explosive power required. White rum is traditionally used but golden rum is excellent too.

Khukri Cocktail
Shake a double measure of Khukri rum with the juice of half a lime, a teaspoon of grenadine, and ice. Strain it into a cocktail glass. Cuba Libre Mix a generous measure of Khukri rum with a tablespoon or so of freshly squeezed lime juice, pour over ice, and top with cola. Petite Fleur Shake equal measures of Khukri rum, Cointreau and freshly squeezed grapefruit juice with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
 
Mai Tai
Blend a measure each of Khukri rum and light rum with half-measures of tequila, Cointreau and apricot brandy, a measure of freshly squeezed orange juice, a splash of grenadine and a few drops of Angostura bitters and ice cubes in a liquidizer. Decant into a very large wine glass. Approach with trepidation.

Planter's Punch
Shake a double measure each of Khukri rum and fresh orange juice with a couple of teaspoons of fresh lemon juice and ice, and strain into a large glass. (Some authorities insist on a dash of grenadine just for good measure)

Ti Punch
Stir a generous measure of Khukri rum with a splash of cane syrup and the pounded zest and juice of a lime in a large tumbler with plenty of crushed ice. (Not to be confused with tea punch, which is actually based on tea.)

Pina Colada
Invented in Puerto Rico, this literally translates as 'strained pineapple'. The classic recipe suggests coconut cream in place of Malibu, but the latter has an added zing. It doesn't include cream either Whizz up two measures each of white rum and pineapple juice, with a couple of teaspoons of shredded fresh coconut and ice, in a liquidizer. (For that tropical touch, the drink should ideally be poured into a pineapple shell with a good lining of fruit left in it and drunk through straws.)

Daiquiri
This cocktail was officially christened by a group of American engineers working in the Daiquiri tin mines near Santiago de Cuba at the turn of the century. They regularly imbibed this potion for medicinal purposes - or so they alleged!
Shake a double measure of Khukri rum with the juice of half a lime or a quarter of a lemon, a teaspoon of caster sugar and ice. Strain into a cocktail glass. (Adding half a measure of some fruit liqueur, together with 50g/2oz of the equivalent fresh fruit, pureed, is a popular spin on the original Daiquiri. A strawberry version made with fraise liqueur is especially enticing.)

Zombie
Blend a measure each of Khukri rum, light rum and apricot brandy with half-measure of pineapple juice and freshly squeezed lemon and orange juices in a liquidizer, with ice, and pour into a large goblet.
