Drink recipe
During college, one of the places that was somewhat popular was the Hong Kong in Harvard Square, Cambridge, Massachusetts. They wouldn't give out the recipe for their scorpion bowls, but this is fairly close. I think it is so named because it sneaks up on you and then gets you with a deadly sting. Scorpion Bowl [makes 6-8 cup 2-3 person bowl] 1 shot (1.5 oz) Dark Rum 1 shot (1.5 oz) Brandy 2 shots (3 oz) Light Rum 2 shots (3 oz) 151 Rum 2 shots (3 oz) Triple Sec 18 oz Guava Punch 2 oz Pink Grapefruit Juice 2 oz Papaya Juice 5 oz Orange Juice mix with cracked ice drink through big long straws preferably served in a fun communal bowl, possibly coconut shells Update: By the way, this is obviously more than a single drink-equivalent. It is strong, but it doesn't taste that strong. It is specifically designed to be drunk by more than one person- the restaurant wouldn't serve one to just one person. Use with extreme caution, don't drink and drive, drink responsibly. Etc. :)

I think I'll try that over the holidays - at home! It sounds really yummy. I'm sure that John and I will enjoy it.

Thanks for the recipe!

Great! Let me know how it turns out.
Hey, love the Hong Kong in Cambridge. I hung around Central Square and Harvard Sq. in the 80's. Saw Tracy Chapman in the square too.
