The Beachcomber Cocktail Recipe – Boat Drinks

After one sip, you’ll be combing the beach for your dignity.

If you prefer a Boat Drink with flavors of the warm ocean, endless summers and coconut palm trees, then the Beachcomber cocktail might just have your name on it. Fruity and light, this is a great drink to have by your side as you chillax in the sun watching the world slip by on St. Somewhere.

Creating the Beachcomber cocktail is simple. We like simple right? I know I do. When I’m thirsty for a rum drink, I want it STAT! With a few simple ingredients and a little mixing, you’ll be sipping the taste of relaxation in no time at all.

The Beachcomber Cocktail Recipe


  • 1 1/2 oz light rum
  • 1/2 oz triple sec
  • 1/2 oz lime juice
  • 1 dash maraschino liqueur

Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice cubes. Shake. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Raise glass and toast.

I’m not sure about the history of the Beachcomber. From doing a little research, it looks to be Hawaiian in origin. Probably some laid-back surfing bartender on Waikiki Beach playing mixologist one late night many years ago. I’m probably way wrong, but sounds good doesn’t it?

    My rummy senses tell me that the Beachcomber originated sometime in the 1930s at the site of the first Don Beachcombers restaurant in Hollywood, CA by his namesake, Don the Beachcomber — one of the founding fathers of the Tiki lifestyle.

    This certainly got me to work up a powerful thirst. I suppose work would be none to happy if I turned my desk into a mini bar – oh well, the weekend will be here soon and this has just been added to my ‘things to drink’ list.

    Sounds good to me Brad! I did see the name Don the Beachcomber pop up quite a bit while I was looking for information. Cheers!

    Unclerico23…there’s always happy hour! Cheers!

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple,
    yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance”
    between superb usability annd visual appeal.

    blog loads very fast ffor me oon Opera. Excellent Blog!
