Naked Pirate Drink Recipe
If you feel like streaking while saying ‘Arrrr Mattie!’, this is the drink for you. And no, there are no naked pirates that come with this recipe (sorry ladies), although that could work at some establishments.
And keeping to tradition, this three ingredient drink recipe does indeed include rum, although the coconut variety. Plus some gin and pineapple juice, making this more of a beach or summer drink than anything else.
- 2 ounces Bombay Saphire Gin
- 2 ounces Bacardi Coco rum
- 4 ounces Pineapple Juice
- Grab a handful of ice and add it to your shaker.
- add the Gin, rum and pineapple juice to the shaker.
- Shake for 10 seconds to mix the ingredients.
- Pour all of the content of the shaker including ice into a highball or pint glass.
- Garnish with a pineapple wheel or wedge.
- Serve or drink up!
- Highball or Pint Glass
How To Make a Naked Pirate?
This is an easy drink to make. You’ll need a shaker, a highball or pint glass, some ice, and all the liquid ingredients. No special tools required!
Add the ice and all the liquor and pineapple juice to the shaker and give it a good few shakes to mix everything up. Then simply pour the entire contents of the shaker into your glass. Garnish if you want or just serve it up.
If you want a garnish, use something from the pineapple. A pineapple wheel or wedge is decent enough. Or go crazy and make some sophisticated garnishes using the pineapple leaves if you’re lucky enough to make fresh pineapple juice.
Naked Pirate Ingredients
- Bombay Saphire Gin
- Bacardi Coconut Rum
- Pineapple Juice
About the Ingredients
Gin – Since this is a drink and not a shooter, use something decent but it doesn’t need to be top shelf. Something like Bombay Sapphire Gin is perfect for this recipe.
Coconut Rum – I like Bacardi Coconut Rum or Flor de Cana for pretty much all my mixed drinks using coconut rum. Stick with either of these and you’ll really enjoy your cocktail.
Pineapple Juice – As always, freshly pressed pineapple juice is always the best. Nothing bottled even comes close. The easiest way to make this drink special is simply making your own juice. Trust me, it’s worth the extra few minutes!
There are quite a few variations to this drink. Pineapple and coconut rum make a great tasting base for a drink and if you experiment enough using just these, I’m sure you could come up with something totally new and unique. But until then, here are a few variations.
Electric Smurf Drink – This drink includes Coconut Rum and Pineapple juice as well. But then Blue Curacao and Lemon-Lime soda are also added making this blue colored drink.
Pineapple Breeze – The Pineapple Breeze is similar to the drink above but has an extra ingredient, orange juice. Other than that, they’re exactly the same.
What Tools Are Needed?
- Highball or Pint Glass
