Does anyone here know the recipe for Trader Sam's Krakatoa Punch?

I thought it to be their version of a Painkiller?

My cocktail guide says:

3 oz Coconut Cream
3 oz Pusser's Rum
1 splash(es) Orange Juice
4 oz Pineapple Juice

The description of the Krakatoa reads:

Reserve and Spiced Rums, Tropical Juices, Orgeat (Almond) Syrup, Sam's Gorilla Grog, and Hibiscus Grenadine.

Not sure I see too much resemblance.

I have only a vague remembrance of drinking that drink about a year ago.

However, if I were to try and reconstruct it based on their description, here's what I might start with as a first experiment:

Reserve Rum (1 and 1/2 oz Appleton Estate)
Spiced Rums (1 oz Kraken Spiced Rum)
Tropical Juices (1/2 oz each of Pineapple/Orange/Guava nectar and 2 oz lemon juice)
Orgeat Syrup (1/4 oz)
Sam's Gorilla Grog (1/4 oz BG Reynolds Falernum syrup & 1/4 oz BG Reynolds Cinnamon syrup)
Hibiscus Grenadine (1/4 oz of BG Reynolds Hibiscus Grenadine Syrup)
Spritz of Club Soda
Crushed ice.

This is based on absolutely nothing. It may taste terrible. You have been warned.

I may be mixing up the drinks from there?
I shall research it further, but did you not just answer your own question?

I have an idea, but that's far from a recipe. One person said it tastes strongly of pineapple. It isn't important, I just thought I'd ask. It's amazing the knowledge I come across on TC.

There's definitely no "strong" pineapple taste other than what might be included in their juices. Sounds to me like you need to break down what exactly is in their Gorilla Grog and you'll be pretty well off, since everything else is mentioned in the menu.

I have been experimenting with this for quite a while, I thought I had a break through so I had to taste test a real one Wednesday...I think I'm pretty darn close

Krakatoa Punch
1 oz. dark rum (Pyrat XO)
1 oz. spiced rum (Seven Tiki/Sailor Jerry)
3 oz. Gorilla Grog (see below)
.5 oz. Orgeat
.25 oz. grenadine (maybe a little less)
Shake with ice, strain into tall glass with ice
(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iVzA_aAHaUA)


Gorilla Grog (the key ingredient)
1 oz Passion Fruit juice*
1 oz Orange juice (no pulp)*
1 oz Guava juice*
1 oz Pineapple juice
2 oz lemon juice
.25 oz. Orgeat
.25 oz. Falernum
*Or 3 oz. of POG juice

**on 04/08/15 they were using Pyrat Rum and Sailor Jerry's, not Seven Tiki spiced rum, at Trader Sam's

Yeah recently they made the change to Sailor Jerry's. I'm not sure why, maybe a cost thing, but that's how it goes. I suggest using your preferred.

Well I've never seen a Gorilla Grog recipe, so we'll have to give it a whirl!

BTW Fresh & Easy markets here have been carrying POG Juice for the last few months.

That isn't an "official" Gorilla Grog recipe, I researched and experimented a lot to get that version.

I had a few friends over last night and the ones that have had real Krakatoas thought my recipe was real darn close (and those that hadn't had it before are now addicted ) .
