A drink with a Tiki name, the Diki-Diki Cocktail:

  • 1.50 ounces Calvados
  • 0.50 ounce Swedish Punsch
  • 0.75 ounce grapefruit juice

Shake well with ice, and strain into a cocktail glass.

While this drink sounds like it would be part of the Tiki tradition, it isn’t. Those drinks tend to be sweet and rather strong, while this is a nice, simple cocktail.

The main spirit, Calvados, is an apple brandy which is offset by the spicy rum-like flavor of the Swedish Punsch. I used fresh grapefruit juice which lessens the sweetness of the Calvados just a bit.

This was a good cocktail but not one I’d seek out.

Rating: 3/5

Notes: I used Drouin Calvados and Kronan Swedish Punsch.
