A Goombay Smash recipe reminds me of a Caribbean vacation. The taste of coconut and pineapple makes this a beach favorite cocktail of mine.
What’s in a Goombay Smash?
The sweet tastes of coconut, pineapple and oranges are blended with three different kinds of rum. It’s a taste of the Bahamas that my family makes every time July and August roll around.
We head to the Outer Banks of North Carolina every summer for vacation.
My folks live there and it is a great time to visit the grandparents and for my kids to get time in the sun and surf. We love spending time on the boogie boards, crabbing on the sound side and exploring the quaint shops of Duck, NC.
We just love it there because it is perfect for families and vacations.
If you ever wonder where to go for a beach vacation this is the perfect distance for a one day drive from Ohio or any other mid western state.
Is the Goombay Smash a good party drink?
Now back to the Goombay Smash. Happy hour after spending time on the beach calls for a little bar tending from the head of the house.
My dad loves to whip up this delicious cocktail for anyone willing to partake. He also make a mean Orange Hemingway and Pina Colada.
I am also hoping we can make his ceviche because it is amazing and it is a must try if you’ve never tried it.
The Goombay Smash requires three different types of rum, brandy and fruit juice.
This tiki drink is fruity and sweet is the perfect drink recipe if you are looking for a large batch punch recipe.
It’s great for parties and brunches. But be careful because they are easy to drink.
Not too syrupy, this classic cocktail has the right proportions of sweet and sour. If you love tropical cocktails you must give a Goombay Smash a try.
Invented at Miss Emily’s Blue Bee Bar on Green Turtle Cay in the Abacos, this cocktail is easy to drink.
Luckily it is also easy to make. Save yourself a trip to the Bahamas and put this tropical drink on your drink menu.
To Make a Goombay Smash
Stop by your local liquor store and pick up your favorite brands of white and dark rum, coconut rum and apricot brandy. Next, chose a bottle of fresh orange juice or squeeze your own oranges. You will also want a few cans or bottles of pineapple juice. You will want fresh pineapple wedges or orange or lime slices. Add all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker and mix well \. Pour the fruity mixture over ice into the glass of your choice. Garnish the rim with your fruit of choice.
