    Default Any success replicating a Jamaican Delight?

    Just spent a week at CN after a week at CTI last fall. I am truly hooked on Jamaican Delights. I watched the bartenders make them this trip and noticed they used Appleton's (some used light and others used the regular kind), apricot liqueur, and pineapple juice out of a jug (not sure exactly what was in it since it was really yellow). I went to the liquor store today and bought the apricot liqueur and some standard pineapple juice. Didn't taste like what I remember in Jamaica. Any success replicating the drink with standard ingredients available here in the US? Recipes?

    Many bartenders also use a shot of Tia Maria (or other coffee liquer). The mix you see poured in does have a lot of pineapple juice in it, but it is a 'sweet and sour mix'. Add some lime juice to your pineapple juice and you will be a lot closer to what is used by many (but not all... ) of the bartenders at Jamaican resorts.

    Make sure that you use Appleton Rum since it has a different flavor than other rums.

    Sorry, try to google Couples Negril recipes by Lynn H and it should work.

    Perhaps this is better:

    Let's see if that one works.

    My favorite also. I make mine with Bacardi Gold at home. Can't waste suitcase space on Appleton when there is rum cream to bring back. I have experimented a bit and here is the best that I hit on.
    1 shot Rum (light or dark depending on your taste)
    1 shot Apricot Brandy
    1 shot sweet & sour mix
    1 tbsp grenadine
    6 oz pinapple juice.
