If there was a cocktail book dedicated to the nastiest named cocktails in the world, this one would probably make the cut first and foremost. Some may think that its exceedingly dirty name is a great shame, because who knows how many hundreds of thousands of people have been put off by it and never gotten to taste this cocktail. Because, although its name may lead every single mind to (naturally) believe otherwise and expect the worst, the drink in itself is nothing like its namesake. Instead, it is a fruity and tart mix of two very basic ingredients – one liqueur, in this case, Smirnoff Watermelon Twist Vodka, and one fruit juice, in this case, Sunny Delight Orange Juice.
The reason that this drink incorporates such specifically branded ingredients is that it was created by a person, not a bar. That person in question is in fact Benny Varughese from New York. The drink gained popularity in a more local setting at Drexel University, where Benny was notorious for partying day in and out. He invented the Asian Cum Shot to go with the pre-game parties that he hosted in New York. The Asian Cum Shot has only one recipe which is followed every time it is made.
The drink took off from there and did circulate around the States and beyond it, but it does not rank among the most well-known cocktails in the world, not even among the most well-known dirty sounding cocktails in the world. However, it is a delicious drink for anyone who can get past the name, and it is aesthetically pretty as well, similar to fruity and tropical cocktails.
Here is the standard recipe for the Asian Cum Shot.
- 90 ml Smirnoff® Watermelon Twist vodka
- 180 ml Sunny Delight® orange juice
- Add a few ice cubes to a Highball glass
- Pour the Smirnoff Watermelon Twist Vodka and Sunny Delight Orange Juice in the glass
- Stir well before serving
