Recipe: Kaleidoscope Eyes

Recipe: Kaleidoscope Eyes


Published:

Ferndale’s Oakland Art Novelty Company has a reputation as a classy cocktail joint, but in the summer months they know how to unwind. On Fridays and Saturdays (weather permitting) they host the tiki-themed Honi Honi on the Oakland’s back patio, serving up cheap beers, mai tais, and Kaleidoscope Eyes. Owner Sandy Levine says the drink started off as something made for the bartenders to “catch up” at the end of a long night, and as such, it’s as potent as it is easy to down. “It can be very dangerous, so more than two is not recommended unless you are a seasoned regular,” Levine says. “People have ended up lying in bushes from too many of these.” 

Ingredients

1½ ounces Wray & Nephew Overproof Rum

1 ounce fresh squeezed lime juice

1 ounce simple syrup

½ ounce Stroh 80 Rum

Directions

Combine the first three ingredients in a shaker filled with ice. Shake and then strain into a glass filled with crushed ice. Top off with the Stroh 80 — and add a paper umbrella, of course.
