Surfer On Acid Cocktail Recipe

The 1990’s didn’t produce many classic cocktails, but it did produce some solid drinks that have remained. It’s easy to see that “Surfer on Acid” is one of the drinks that are meant for a beach or vacation setting.

For those who don’t know, “acid” refers to LSD, a hallucinogenic drug associated with the counterculture in the mid-1960s in the United States. The drink was created in Los Angeles by a bartender by the name of Eric Tecosky, as well. The drink, when considering that counter culture had its epicenter in California, along with surfing, is a decidedly “Western” cocktail, in terms of the United States, which is rare. Regardless, it makes for a tasty and refreshing cocktail.

Ingredients:

  • ½ ounce of Jagermeister liqueur
  • ½ ounce of coconut rum
  • ½ ounce of pineapple juice
  • Ice

Equipment:

  • Cocktail shaker
  • Cocktail glass

Instructions:

  1. Pour all ingredients into a shaker, over ice.
  2. Shake until completely cold.
  3. Strain into the glass.

The fact that there is “surfer” in the name of the cocktail, while also incorporating rum and pineapple juice, makes for a great beach or vacation drink in general. One great aspect of the Surfer on Acid is that it doesn’t need to just be a cocktail – it could be a shot, as well. It should also be noted that LSD is a very unique hallucinogenic drug, and isn’t considered addictive, and is even be researching by California researchers in terms of applications into how it can cure anxiety, OCD, and other mental disorders. The drink can certainly be classified as a “tropical” option, and for those who do not want to use a coconut rum specifically, another option is to use rum, then add a splash of coconut water. Regardless, whatever variation you choose – enjoy a Surfer on Acid in shot, or cocktail form, today!
