The name of this alcoholic drink is based on the eruption of the volcanic island of Krakatoa, Indonesia. Which began on August 26th 1883 killing thousands of people in one of the worst disasters of modern times. It last erupted on 23rd December 2018. Hopefully this cocktail will give you an incredible taste rather than an eruption!

How to make the above cocktail, you will need the following ingredients/equipment.

This is a straight forward cocktail to make but also very easy to drink too.

Grenadine drizzled through the cocktail!
