The Fog Cutter Cocktail or Fogcutter Cocktail is a classic TIki drink. It was created by Tony Ramos a bartender at Don the Beachcomber in Hollywood sometime in the 1930s. Not for the faint of heart, they say if you are a bit foggy headed, this one will cut right through.
We were going to do a Cinco de Mayo Drink, but felt this would be more appropriate today. There are a number of drinks named the Brass Monkey. We think the Beastie Boys would have been drinking this recipe, equal parts mart liquor and orange juice. Not for the faint of heart.
We like the variation below too.
Brass Monkey Cocktail
This week’s drink is a classic tropical cocktail that I first had in Hawaii many years ago. An island favorite for sitting in the sun, the lava flow is a combination of fresh strawberry purée, coconut, pineapple juice and rum (for flavor). You can make the strawberry purée ahead of time and use left overs on pancakes or ice cream.
1 Bottle (750 ml) Light Rum
4 oz. Apricot Brandy
2 Cups Grapefruit Juice
1 Cup Pineapple Juice
Juice of 3 Lemons
4 Cups Club Soda
Combine all ingredients in a large punch bowl. Add a large block of ice.
Float orange slices on top.
