Pirate’s Treasure Cocktail Recipe

A pirate’s treasure is a fun drink to make at parties and one of the tastiest shots you’ll ever taste. There are only two ingredients needed, and they’re both so popular that you probably have both in your bar already. It’s a recipe that puts your bartending skills to the test, but it’s easy enough that anyone can make it. To make it, you’ll bury the treasure (gold flakes from Golschläger) beneath rum spiced with dirt. In addition, if you buy the recommended brand, you will have the pirate Captain Morgan watching over your booty. I realize this sounds like a gimmick – and in a way, it is – but when you get distinct layers, it is quite impressive. Bonus, the cinnamon schnapps and spiced rum combine to make a delicious drink, so you almost don’t want to end up drinking it all in one sitting.
