The Tiki Stormtrooper

Continuing the Star Wars theme…

Since it is the holiday season, this is a take on the Rum Cow, which I think of as an eggnog base without the egg and difficulty. A rum cow is basically a rum and milk mixture with some spices and stuff. The Tiki Stormtrooper tries to raise it up a few levels in taste and potency. After a couple of these, you will begin to understand their inability to shoot straight.

This also feeds into my White Russian love gained from The Big Lebowski!


  • 1 oz Smith & Cross
  • 1 oz Appleton Estate Rare Blend
  • 2 oz Creme de Cocoa
  • 1 oz Orgeat Syrup
  • 5 oz half & half
  • small splash of vanilla extract
  • shake of nutmeg
  • shake of cinnamon
  • a couple of dashes of Angostura bitters

Stir ingredients together with crushed ice.

ProTip – If you shake it, you will need a BIG glass as the half and half will increase in volume. This is not a bad thing if you are prepared for it!
