Inspired by the song, "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere" (sung by Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffet), I found this recipe in Stuart Walton's book, The Ultimate Book of Cocktails. I make mine in a tall crystal martini shaker filled with crushed ice and simply remove the shaker top to serve. One per customer, please!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Shake all the ingredients well with ice, and strain into a highball glass.

Here in Costa Rica, it doesn't have to be 5 o'clock! Elevenses are fine, too! This was a mighty tasty drink, and I'm having to backspace to correct my typos. Whew, lotsa rum!!! Ever since my first visit to Pat O'Briens, all my adult life I've used Pat O'Brien's hurricane mix (full of I-don't-want-to-know" chemical ingredients) to make this wonderful drink. Wish I had known how easy it is to make this from on-hand ingredients! Thanks for posting, teammate!!!

I made mine a double. I used Myers's Rum Original Dark and black current juice so my drink was really a dark purple. I found the Welch's Passion Fruit juice in the frozen aisle at the store. Taste very good, but I think I need to make another one to try and perfect a lighter color. Wish me luck, this may take a few tries. It is beyond me, how they get this drink the pretty red color using the dark rum. Made for team Soup-A-Stars during ZWT9 2013

This is a tasty little cocktail. I had to use a tropical juice blend instead of passion juice and black currant jelly heated to a syrup.
