In honor of Anthony Bourdain’s Birthday, we wanted to re-create the Headhunter Polynesian cocktail he had on one of his episodes where he visits Jade Island in Staten Island NY.

The one I had I could almost certainly say there was sweet and sour mix in it.  Any cocktail, especially an authentic Tiki or Polynesian cocktail should only use real, fresh-squeezed juices.


  • 40 ml fresh lime juice
  • 40 ml papaya nectar
  • 15 ml peach nectar
  • 20 ml honey syrup
  • 45 ml Demerara rum
  • 15 ml Overproof Rum
  • 20 ml Gold Rum
  • 4 oz ice
