KimberlyHey, I'm an easy target when it comes to a decent Goombay Smash, I must admit ... but I really like the sound of Mandy's Costco-worthy recipe. Boy, do I miss those all-night bonfires ...

hobiecatHi! This is the recipe I use, simplified, and easily concocted for those late night beach bonfires:

One bottle dark rum
One bottle coconut rum (Ron Ricardo is my fave, but have substituted Captain Morgan in an off-island pinch)
One carton orange juice
One carton pineapple juice

Shake, stir, consume, enjoy!

ColinAm I wrong that a Goombay traditionally includes: one shot each of light rum, dark rum and coconut rum, mixed with pineapple juice?? Add ice and shake well. A whiff of Galliano may be added. I find that a nice squeeze of lime or lemon really helps bring out the sunshine in the drink.

I'm a wee worried about Kimberly if she's gotten this wrong. Her reputation as an imbiber is such one would expect her to know!
