The term "perfect storm" is nearly synonymous with "worst-case scenario", although the latter carries more of a hypothetical connotation.
This drink is pretty much the opposite of its name: Tasty, aromatic, refreshing and something special. Originates from the classic "Jamaican Mule", also seen as "Jamaican Storm"

Well-balanced drink of Ginger Beer, spiced rum and lemon juice, served on the rocks.

"Weird show!" you mumble, sitting back in your car on your way home. "This weather is killing me and I'm dying for a drink!"
You keep your eyes open, hoping to find a restaurant, bar or at least a gas station to buy some refreshments. But the recent events barely left any business alive.
"What's that?" You squint your eyes, not sure whether you're hallucinating or you really just saw a flickering neon sign, advertising a bar. You slam the break and jerk the steering wheel to take an immediate u-turn. The highway is empty, as usual these days, so there's nobody that could be bothered by your maneuver.
As you get closer, you feel more and more positive about the existence of that neon sign, until you finally reach the parking lot of a rundown bar with barricaded windows. But you hear some music from the inside, so you enter the taproom. Nobody is around, only the bartender listening to some music and polishing glasses.
You take a look at the menu - "Is this some kind of joke?" you ask, pointing at the sheet of paper that contained - ONE - drink.
"Nope, take it or leave it, bud..." the barkeeper mumbles.
Who would even call a drink a "Perfect Storm", especially at these circumstances? But do you really have a choice? During the last weeks you learnt to lower your standards and that being too picky usually ends in getting nothing at all.
"Alright, Perfect Storm please, cant't get any worse, can it?" The bartender nods, throws some ice cubes and a slice of lemon into a glass before pouring over some murky brown liquid. He hands it over, nods again and continues to polish his glasses.

You take a smell, breathe a sigh of relief and gulp down a huge, thirsty sip. The bartender just renamed the good old "Jamaican Mule".
After a few more sips you enjoy the heat of the alcohol flowing through your body. You enjoy the warmth and spiciness of Ginger Beer, paired with Caribbean Spiced Rum, juicy lime, a slice of cucumber and the refreshing coldness of the ice cubes.

Ingredients

  • VT Fizzy Sherbet Brings in the fizzy mouthfeel of Ginger Beer.
  • TPA Ginger Ale Basis for the Ginger Beer. Nice ginger note.
  • VT Ginger Root Adds more ginger to the Ginger Beer, especially on the spicy side that differs Ginger Beer from Ginger Ale
  • FLV Heat Does not add taste but turns the Ginger Beer into a spicy and slightly hot version, like brands as Thomas Henry or Bundaberg
  • FE Lemon Refreshing lemon taste that pairs well with both, ginger and rum.
  • VT Light Rum Basis for the rum component, especially on the lighter notes and slight boozy notes. More of a white rum than a spiced rum.
  • FA Jamaican Special Caribbean Mule is usually mixed with spiced rum. This one helps to bring in the spice.
  • VT Russian Vodka Adds more booziness for more authentic rum experience
  • CAP Cucumber Cucumber usually is a part of the cocktail. Only in for a very slight taste, mostly for a more watery mouthfeel.
  • WS-23 You don't like lukewarm drinks, do you? Works perfectly fine together with FLV Heat.

Additional Notes

  • I did also try FLV Citrus Soda instead of Fizzy Sherbet. Works but not as good. Feel free to lower or remove the Heat in case you don't like the mouthfeel. Doesn't contribute taste, only makes the ginger more authentic.

The Floradora is a classic cocktail that you might not know, but you should know because it is a truly fabulous (and rather sexy) gin drink. It is semi-sweet, tall, refreshing, and beautifully pink. One might even call the Floradora the "original girly drink."

The cocktail was named after the first Broadway musical hit comedy of the same name in the early 1900s. The name was originally ​spelled "Florodora" following the show name and the cocktail was a hit among New York's high society up through the 1950s.

Originally, the drink was made with raspberry syrup, but now uses framboise liqueur (raspberry-flavored) almost exclusively. There are a number of raspberry liqueurs available with Chambord (black raspberry) being the most common poured into today's Floradora cocktails.

FA Gin is an uber realistic gin which perfectly encapsulates that familiar and distinct juniper flavor. This is the main flavor note of the cocktail and pulls through beautifully without overpowering.

The raspberry combo has been my go-to for years and just works so well here. Authentic, slightly tart and semi sweet raspberry goodness.

TPA Ginger ale can be a bitch but used low, it provides just the right amount of a ginger ale vibe without annihilating the rest of the ingredients.

A wedge of lemon and handful of ice tops of our cocktail perfectly.

The smell of this juice instantly took me back to a vacation to Cancun, where every other mixed drink seemed to be blue and delicious. Note that this is no liquor flavored vape. This is a Ginger Ale first and foremost with a kick of sweet and sour blue raspberry and a hint of lime.

You might want to back off on the TFA Ginger Ale by a percent. Personally, I'm a huge fan of the flavor and like it loud.

This mix is based on a fall cocktail I recently came across https://jellytoastblog.com/cranberry-apple-cider-cocktail/ that looked really tasty for this time of year. I did not want a darker cider with alot of heavy spice like a mulled cider. I wanted a brighter crisp apple forward cocktail which I think I was able to achieve here .

Most cider flavors are a darker apple note often with spices - which I really did not want ; so the combination of INW two apples and WF Thai apple create a really bright crisp full apple flavor. Molinberry apple cider is a a lighter brighter cider which worked as the predominate cider note int his mix . The mint is light for me me and adds a bit of coolness in this mix, and is less noticeable as it steeps but I happen to enjoy that cooling in this mix
The sweet citrus of the blood orange and the tartness of the cranberry are nice accents notes to this predominate apple forward mix
The geingerale and golden syrup create some darker sweet ginger base notes for this mix with out distracting too much for the brightness of the mix.

Since this is based on a vodka cocktail I used VT russian vodka for the booze top note

SWEETNER: I added .5% of cap to help lift the apple notes a bit

I started out with an idea of an Alien franchise inspired mix. Originally I thought Nostromo would be a fitting name, but was left not really feeling the inspiration. Then Xenomorph came into play. For those not familiar, those are the adult form of the creatures in the films.

This is a fizzy, lime soda with just that touch of Ginger Ale to give it a push.

It was easy where I had to go with this then. Xenomorphs have green, acidic blood. So Lime was a given. And I knew I wanted it to be an in your face, intense recipe.

I originally chose VT Shisha Lime and FA Aurora as my base, but it seemed that Aurora was smoothing out the lime too much and that is not what I wanted. With a second opinion from u/FomentLife, I decided to scrap Aurora and add FA Lime Tahity Distilled to get some wonderful zest going in the mix.

u/Staybert found success with FLV Citrus Soda in his Citrasberry recipe, and I knew right away it belonged here.

u/OdieDoodah gave me the suggestion of TFA Ginger Ale to add an extra level to the "blood".

CAP Hibiscus brings some syrupy goodness into the fold.

This came together in an AHA! moment and I'm quite pleased with the results.

An attempt at a ginger rum lime drink built around TPA Ginger Ale. Not the best way to go since ginger ale has a heavy vanilla cream going on that is not hidden at this high a percentage. It's good, but a cleaner ginger drink built around FLV Ginger is probably in the future... until then, here is a solid balanced drink that gives you an excuse to use your Gingers

Once upon a time, a friend of mine described to me a flavor by 63 Maui. Now defunct, and recipes not released, I had nothing to test against. So I went after making my own version of Aole Pilikia (https://www.juicedb.com/juice/15730/aole-pilikia-by-63-maui)

I may have missed the mark, but what came out was undeniably very tasty. Vaguely reminds me of a Moscow mule.

Let this one sit for a few days to let the lime calm down a bit, but if you want that fresh citrus bite, it's still quite tasty day one.

This mix really highlights the Botanical Gin which is notable on the end of the inhale and lingers through the exhale. It is really close to a true botanical gin
The cranberry is a sweet and tart bright note on the inhale
The Orange juice mixes with the cranberry to add a sweet acid note that works in through the the mix
The Ginger ale adds some darker sweet notes to contrast the top notes
Golden syrup adds that sweetness and to the mix similar to a simple syrup in a cocktail
The Blood orange champagne adds the impression of a fizz here and additional sweet citrus

Nice refreshing can of coke with a hint of ginger & lime.

This is my version of a Hpnotiq cocktail. TPA-Hpno Type is the blue citrus foundation. The FA-Jamaica Special is a delicious rum flavoring but it lacks the alcohol feel that the VT-Light Rum brings to the mix. The FA-Coconut and INW-Pineapple add a tropical flare to it. The TPA-Ginger Ale helps to lighten it up and then I threw in a splash of VT-Bitters for good measure.

You can also add some sweetener and a cooling agent if you like. Photo was found on Pinterest.

Flavor Notes

By: CheebaSteeba Score: 75 / 100 Solo: 6.0% Mix: 4.0% Steep: 1 days Difficulty: 25 / 100

The flavor reminds me of like a mix between Vernor's and store brand ginger ale syrup. It's not thick or dense, but almost a little "sticky" or "viscous" if that makes sense. I get little to no effervescence, which I was hoping would be present. Overall I enjoy the flavor, but it misses the mark to be an all inclusive ginger ale, so things like liquor, champagne, spices, etc. may be desired in a mix. Slightly sweet, not so much so that additional sweeteners would be unwarranted. Although the flavor is prominent, it is slightly in the back, so if you want it to be more present you may need to use a higher % in a mix.
