Want to wow your mum with some 80s trivia?

Rifle through her well dusty record collection and you’ll probs find a Eurythmics track or two.

But did you know, when silver-haired songstress Annie Lennox wrote the words ‘Sweet dreams are made of these’, by ‘these’ she actually meant acombinationofKetelOnevodkaMaliburumanddeliciouslyretroRainbowDrops?

Yes, this boozy combo plus the colourful little balls (of perfectly puffed maize and rice) make up only the BEST, sweetest of dreams. And the good news? You don’t have to travel the world and the seven seas to taste it – here’s how to do it at home.

Equipment

Boston tin
Hurricane glass
A tiny, tiny peg

Ingredients

25ml Ketel One vodka
12.5ml Malibu rum
12.5ml Blue Curaçao
75ml pineapple juice
12.5ml lime juice
12.5ml grenadine syrup
Crushed ice

Garnish

Pineapple leaf
Bag of Rainbow Drops

Method

First, grab your Ketel One, Malibu, Blue Curaçao and lime juice and throw all ingredients into a Boston tin that’s half-filled with crushed ice. Shake it like a Polaroid picture and put to one side.

Then, add a little ice into the bottom of your chilled hurricane glass and drizzle the grenadine on top. Be sure to get the sides of the glass to get a great rainbow effect at the end! Add your pineapple juice, then top with your pre-shaken, ice-cold blend from the Boston tin.

Pop a pineapple leaf on top, then peg your bag of Rainbow Drops to the side of the glass for that all-important added sugar rush. As if life wasn’t sweet enough!
