A tropical cocktail that is perfect for the new year, this tiki drink makes you think of warmer weather!
So, tiki drinks. We have a few of them. Like our Rambler’s Ruby and Cargo Cult cocktails. These we did in the common tiki drink way in mugs. The Seer Cocktail is not a typical one, but it has all the typical flavors of a tropical cocktail. Try another tropical cocktail ingredient in our homemade allspice dram, too!

This drink has all the flavors of tiki, but much simpler glassware. But did I say simpler cocktail? Hahah, you know us by now, right? Our Nene Bird cocktail is delicious, too!
What Ingredients are Needed for The Seer?
- Golden Rum – It has an amber color, hence the name. The flavor is sweet, rich and sometimes buttery. Unfortunately this can apply to just some added caramel color, so be careful what you use. Some great brands are Mount Gay Eclipse, Havana Club, Pyrat and Bacardi.
- Blackstrap Rum – blackstrap is a nomenclature. They are basically a black rum, but made with blackstrap molasses. Dark and rich with caramel tones and sweetness. Some brands can be Gosling’s or Cruzan.
- Lime Juice – fresh squeezed is best!
- Pineapple Juice – again, fresh is best, but canned is ok. Just make sure to shake the can or bottle before pouring. Try another pineapple cocktail with our Fall in Paradise or Pineapple Express Punch!
- Orgeat – an almond syrup with orange flower water. Orgeat is a tropical staple ingredient, and plays super well with citrus juices and rum. Try it in our Mai Tai, Winter Mai Tai or make your own homemade orgeat!
- Tiki Bitters – we used Bitterman’s ‘Elemakule tiki bitters, but El Guapo Polynesian Kiss bitters work really well, too!
As you can tell, we love to use dry ice for effect and drama. In this Seer cocktail, we really felt inspired by the idea that we are almost in a new decade!
Yeah, it’s the 20’s. Wait, what?! So we came up with the idea of a fortune telling cocktail “seeing” into the future of the new decade and the new year coming up.
And then…..and then, Jay thought of using a fortune cookie as a garnish. Genius, I thought! So much fun this one was, and so tasty! Easy to make if you are having a New Years party, too!
And, if you are located in the middle of the country like we are, or anywhere that is cold, it’s nice to have a nice tropical cocktail to be dreaming of warmer weather! The combination of gold and blackstrap rum is sweet and dark at the same time.
Then we added the tropical juices of the pineapple and lime. The orgeat syrup was light and flavorful in this, and then the tiki bitters took it over the top!
We hope you make this fun one, dry ice or not, a tiki drink is perfect for celebrating the new year and new decade!
Tips & Tricks
- Dry Ice – if you use Dry Ice for effect in this drink, just make sure you use a small amount and then wait for it to melt before drinking the cocktail.
- Rum – use the rum flavors or brands that you like. The two we used – Gold and Blackstrap are a great combination, but use what you like!
- Citrus Juices – remember, freshly squeezed is best!
