How To Make The Krakatoa / Tiki Cocktail

Today we’re going to show you how to make the Krakatoa, a tiki cocktail for those in the tiki drink mood. You’ll want to have a good appreciation for coffee flavored drinks for this guy, because it brings rum and coffee liqueur together (and coffee liqueur’s base spirit is rum so…)

Angostura Bitters:


It’s tiki drink season and the Krakatoa needs to get on the list! This coffee-forward flavored tiki drink brings the high impact punch of rum to that of some juices, three juices: orange juice, grapefruit juice and lime juice. A good balance of acidity and sweetness as a good tiki cocktail recipe should become!

The Krakatoa may be based on the recipe from Jeff Berry, or some variation off of the original 1960’s tiki creation. Still, a fun recipe that offers a lot of variety of juices and only a few bottles of alcohol.

The Krakatoa
– 1 1/2 oz. Gold Rum
– 1 1/2 oz. Dark Rum
– 1 oz. Orange juice
– 1 oz. Grapefruit juice
– 1 1/2 oz. Lime Juice
