Two Thursdays ago, I was in a Tiki mood after my work shift so I took a gander at the Smuggler's Cove drink book and spotted the Golden Gun. I was drawn into the recipe by the apricot liqueur aspect for it has worked rather well in tropical recipes like Blackbeard's Ghost. This drink was crafted at the Tiki Oasis event in 2012 as table 11's entry in the create-a-cocktail competition.
