Greetings.
After making my first headhunter last night, I am looking to find alternate recipes. I used the recipe that is on every web drink site; the one that calls for massive quantities of 151 rum and spiced rum. Also, beer and papaya juice is called for. I wasn't thrilled with the outcome, and since I was using all fresh juice, there was a real need for some sweetness.

The only other recipe I found was in the 'Bartenders Black Book', and that one was very different. It also looked pretty generic. Interestingly enough, the Headhunter is notably absent from all the other bartending books I found at Borders.

I have not seen the other books like Intoxica; I plan on tring to find those as time and money permit. However, for now, I'd just like to find a decent Headhunter recipe, if such a thing exists.

Thanks!

There is one in the Grog Log and it's a favorite of mine. The book is under $10. Just get it and you'll be happy. Try the link here.

I have dredged a very old post back up. I too have tried several Headhunter recipes, none to my satisfaction. Does anyone have a recipe they enjoy?

The headhunter is my favorite mug and would like to make a version of its namesake that impresses and does not knock people down upon the first sip!

Demerara rum is key.

No kidding! That's the equivalent of nearly 10 oz. of 80 liquor in one drink! "Limit 1/2 to a customer."

I'm going to try Hiltiki's recipe this weekend - it's only 3.25oz Rum per serving. May not knock folks on their arses quite as much!
