Drink #2 The Famous Dorado Punch

The dorado punch was created in 2002 after coming back from a 8 month vacation in the Bahamas. I was working on a sports fishing yacht and learning about life, cooking, cleaning, fishing, gambling and lots of drinking. I must have tried numerous concoctions that the bartender Peter was dishing out to me and my buddy Captain Wayne. So when I got back to the great state of Texas, I went back to bartending and started creating my own signature drink called the dorado punch. After testing numerous drinks on my friends and my bartender in training Jesse, when watching him spit it out or making that what the hell was that face was very entertaining. I think that a 3 drink minimum should be enforced on this drink. they sneak up on you. So i am finally sharing the recipe with all of you.

Dorado Punch

1/2 oz. Apricot brandy
1    oz. Bacardi light rum
1/2 oz.  Myers dark rum
1/4 oz. coco rum
2 1/2 oz. pineapple juice
2 1/2  oz. orange juice
1/4   oz. grenadine syrup
2     oz. sour mix

1/2 oz. Bacardi 151 on top.

mix and serve in tall glass.
