Get ready for a tropical storm in a, erm, mason jar.

Okay, that was pretty poor. But are we going to go back and change how we started this recipe? No, we’re far too stubborn for that! Are we going to put our sharer-sized Tropical Thunder in a teacup so that line has a chance of working? No, ‘cause it actually won’t fit in a teacup! Well, are we going to hire better writers? Maybe!

Now, while our opening line didn’t really work, our delicious Tropic Thunder definitely does. It’s a pure hit of tropical goodness with a proper tasty edge, and because we love you, here’s how to make it at home.


Mason jar
Boston tin

Tropic Thunder ingredients

50ml Ketel One vodka
25ml SKYY Passion Fruit vodka
25ml Luxardo amaretto
25ml Coco Reàl
50ml pineapple juice
25ml lime juice
Top with a can of Ting


2 pineapple wedges
Umbrella and pineapple leaf if you love being a bit EXTRA

How to make a Tropic Thunder

Lucky for you, this one’s as easy to make as it is to drink.

Firstly, grab your Boston tin and fill it with cubed ice. Then add ALL your ingredients except the Ting. That’s the Ketel One vodka, SKYY Passion Fruit vodka, amaretto, Coco Reàl, and both the pineapple juice and lime juice. Throw it all in.

Give this tropical mix a shake for approximately 10 seconds or until your arms get tired, whichever comes first. Then get a hold of your mason jar (or any jug big enough), and add the contents of your Boston tin into the glass, cubed ice and all!

Finally, top the mix with your Ting and to really finish it off, add two pineapple wedges, a pineapple leaf and if you’re a lil’ bit extra, a cheeky umbrella too.


There you have it! Now, there are rumours that one sip of this will ship you straight to a seafront shack in Bermuda, so grab your BFF to share this teasingly tropical blend. Or, don’t. It’s up to you.
