Bottom's up! But take it slow. This classic New Orlean's (N'Awlins) cocktail calls for all the big cocktail players, disguised in splashes of grenadine and fruit juice. 


  • 1 ounce vodka
  • 1 ounce gin
  • 1 ounce light rum
  • ½ oz Bacardi® 151 rum
  • 1 ounce amaretto almond liqueur
  • 1 ounce triple sec
  • 1½ teaspoons grenadine
  • Grapefruit juice
  • Pineapple juice


  • Long straws (you need a tall glass for this one!)
  • 1 orange, sliced into half moons, for garnish
  • Maraschino cherries, for garnish


  1. Fill as large a glass as you have three-fourths full of ice.
  2. Pour in liquors first, then add equal parts of each fruit juice until the glass is full.
  3. Garnish with an orange slice and a maraschino cherry.
  4. And for the real Pat O'Brien's experience, sip through TWO straws!


1 liquid ounce equals 1 standard jigger or 2 tablespoons.
