A Goombay Smash cocktail 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 favorite cocktail 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 these cocktails up for anyone willing to partake. He also make a mean Orange Hemingway.
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 four different liquors and this fruity, sweet drink is the perfect recipe if you are looking for a cocktail punch recipe.
It’s great for parties and brunches. But be careful because they are easy to drink.
Not too syrupy, this cocktail has the right proportions of sweet and sour. If you love a rum cocktail you must give a Goombay Smash a try.
Save yourself a trip to the Bahamas and make one of these at home.
