The scorpion bowl

If you’re the sort of person who appreciates flowers and a thoughtful gesture on Valentine’s Day, a punch bowl for two could be the perfect start to a romantic evening. Or maybe Valentine’s Day is just another Hallmark holiday, and Tuesday is just another Tuesday. If that’s the case, a punch bowl could be an excellent prelude to an evening of early-week debauchery. Any way you look at it, with a punch bowl, everybody wins.

A punch bowl, for those who have yet to experience the massive cocktail, is a large bowl of alcohol, usually more than one kind, and various mixers in the form of fruit juice and/or cordials. By design, it’s meant for more than one person. And it’s a lot more fun than two flutes of Champagne or a bottle of wine.

If you’re looking for a little inspiration, you could make the Scorpion Bowl from the Pacific Seas tiki bar at Clifton’s, the downtown L.A. cafeteria, or the Old One Two from the Spare Room, the bar with the bowling alley at the Hollywood Roosevelt hotel, for your significant other. Both venues are known for their punch bowls and their quiet, dark corners, where you can sip and canoodle to your heart’s content.

The Scorpion Bowl, the stronger of the two punches, is a combination of cognac, gin and light rum, with orange juice, lime juice and orgeat. It’s a citrus-forward cocktail slashed with three strong liquors, each balanced and curbed by the orange juice.

If you happen to have a tiki-style bowl with a center cup for a flaming crouton or lime peel, by all means serve your Scorpion Bowl with a little fire, like they do at Clifton’s. Use lemon extract for an orange flame or a little Bacardi 151 if you want your flame to burn blue. And for a finishing touch, sprinkle a little cinnamon on the flame to make it sparkle. Just think of all this fire as a nod to a flame burning with eternal love, or to your inner pyromaniac. You could also skip the candles and have a quiet dinner, lighted only by punch bowl light.

The Old One Two is a little mellower, made with cognac, berries, lemon juice and sugar, then topped with Champagne. Just be sure to make a show of the Champagne — maybe pour it from an exaggerated height. With the bubbly and the berries, you could even call this enormous cocktail romantic. Serve it in a large bowl surrounded by rose petals, if you’re into that sort of thing.

Lighted on fire or not, just think of these punch bowls as a little liquid courage for whatever you have in store for the evening: a romantic date, a dance party, an evening on the couch with Netflix, or dinner for one, two or 10.

Scorpion Bowl vs. Volcano Bowl

Although both communal tiki drinks, a scorpion bowl and a volcano bowl have some slight differences.

What is a Scorpion Bowl

A Scorpion Bowl is a shared alcoholic tiki drink served in a large ceramic bowl. It’s traditionally decorated with an island scene and is meant to be drunk through long straws with a group of people.

What is s Volcano Bowl

A Volcano bowl is also a shared alcoholic tiki drink served in a large ceramic bowl, however, these types of bowls are designed with a rising ‘crater’ in the center which is intended to be filled with flammable (high-alcohol) liquor. This liquor is lit just before serving, creating a ‘volcanic’ scene.

3 cups crushed ice
2 ounces gin
1 ounce dark rum
2 ounces 151 proof rum
2 ounces light rum
2 ounces vodka
2 ounces grenadine syrup
8 ounces fresh orange juice
10 ounces pineapple juice
3 ounces fresh lemon juice (optional)
4 pineapple chunks
8 maraschino cherries

Place the crushed ice in a large pitcher and pour in the gin, dark rum, 151 proof rum, light rum, vodka, grenadine, orange juice, pineapple juice, and lemon juice.

Stir well to mix, then pour into a large, decorative cocktail glass and garnish with pineapple, cherries, and straws.

Move over Krumkake and Sunnee2000 because I'm a true Scorpion and this looks oh so good to me. Actually, if we could all get together, wouldn't it be a blast to share. We'd just quadruple the measurements or quintuple or whatever LOL Hiccup

Corn kernels always go flying when you cut them off the cob, but it's easy to keep them in check with this simple trick from the CHOW Test Kitchen's Christine Gallary. All you need is a bowl, a paper towel, and a short knife. When you're ready to try out this technique, put it to use in our Tomato, Tomatillo, and Corn Salad recipe.

Scorpion Bowl

  • 10 ounces rum, añejo
  • 2 ounces cognac
  • 3 ounces orgeat
  • 4 ounces lemon juice
  • 3 ounces orange juice

Garnish: freshly grated cinnamon, cinnamon sticks, grapefruit peel, orchids and/or flaming lime shell

  1. Add all ingredients to a blender with 1 cup of crushed ice.
  2. Blend quickly and pour into a Scorpion bowl, or portion out into individual tiki mugs.
  3. Add several large ice cubes to bowl or mugs.
  4. To garnish, add freshly grated cinnamon, cinnamons sticks, a grapefruit peel or orchids.
  5. For a flaming lime shell, invert half of a lime and place in the volcano of a Scorpion bowl, or atop an individual cocktail. Pour in a splash of overproof rum, and carefully light with a match or a lighter.
  6. Be sure to extinguish flaming lime shell before attempting a sip. Serve with straws.
Editor's Note

This drink is proportioned as punch bowl. It can also be batched individually—just divide the measurements by five to create a single cocktail.

The Drink That’s a Party All on Its Own

Full of rum, gin and Cognac and elaborately garnished, the scorpion bowl is unlike anything else.

The reasons we drink may vary, whether it’s to connect, to forget, to end a workday or to open an evening.

With tiki cocktails, however, the reason bubbles straight to the surface: It’s to have fun.

Mai tais, zombies and fog cutters do the trick. But the scorpion bowl, group-friendly and potent, takes tiki’s night out to boisterous levels. It is unlike anything else.

“It’s 100 percent fun,” said Julie Reiner, owner of the Brooklyn bars Clover Club and Leyenda. “Nothing makes somebody happier than a drink that comes to you on fire with crazy garnishes and a whole bunch of straws.”

The scorpion bowl, a mix of rum, gin and Cognac served in a large ceramic bowl, is an oversize, boozy paradigm of excess. If the mai tai is a good Saturday night out at the bar, the scorpion bowl is an exuberant party thrown by four drag queens during Pride Month.

Created with communal drinking in mind, scorpion bowls are a product of tiki, a cultural craze that began in the 1930s and was the brainchild of Ernest Raymond Beaumont Gantt. Better known as Donn Beach, he was a frequent traveler to islands in the Caribbean and the South Pacific, eventually landing in Los Angeles.

His first Hollywood bar and restaurant, Don the Beachcomber, provided a reprieve from reality and placed diners in a romanticized Polynesian setting, with powerful, multilayered rum cocktails at the center. The idea was that you would enter Don the Beachcomber and “feel like you’re in any one of these islands,” Ms. Reiner said.

Copycat tiki bars soon followed, including Trader Vic’s in Oakland, Calif., whose owner, Victor Bergeron, is largely credited with creating the scorpion bowl.

A current of secrecy ran directly underneath tiki’s elaborate garnishes and escapism. Bartenders, rightfully afraid that others would steal their ideas, kept their recipes “under lock and key,” said Shannon Mustipher, a bartender in Brooklyn and the author of the recent cookbook “Tiki: Modern Tropical Cocktails” (Rizzoli, 2019).

“They were coded so that even if a bartender wanted to go to another establishment, they didn’t know what was actually in the drink,” she said.

This is why so many variations of classic tiki drinks exist — and why it’s hard to pin down the original recipes. But, according to Ms. Mustipher, a scorpion bowl should involve dark Jamaican rum, cognac, gin, citrus and orgeat.

Orgeat, a sweet almond syrup often perfumed with orange-flower water, is essential in rounding out the layers of hard booze. A good orgeat, subtly nutty and aromatic, smooths the scorpion bowl’s sharp edges. A lesser one amplifies the fun-house vibes and steers the final drink artificially sweet. Both Ms. Mustipher and Ms. Reiner suggest looking for a higher-quality option online or making your own.

While quality ingredients are central to any superior cocktail, the scorpion bowl’s success hinges on the final garnish. Outfit your bowl in orchids, citrus peels, pineapple wedges, silly straws, fire. Whatever your garnish, choose a gluttonous path.

“The goal is that when you bring it out, people’s eyes get wide and their mouths open, and they want to clap for the drink,” Ms. Reiner said.

The bowl itself can be a classic volcano dish decked with palm trees and hula skirts, but it doesn’t need to be. Smaller soup tureens or that punch bowl collecting dust in your top cabinet work just as well. Banish thoughts of individual glassware, and turn your attention to reusable metal or outrageously patterned paper straws.

Finally, pick your companions wisely. You should either know and love the people you’re drinking with, or be willing to get there fast. You’ll be sharing, photographing, crashing heads together and forgetting whose straw is whose all night. Improvise a toast, light something (carefully) on fire, repurpose garnishes as outfit enhancers — in other words, let the evening be a raucous tribute to joy.

Squeeze lime and orange and filter. Fill a shaker with ice, pour all the ingredients and shake vigorously. Pour into a glass full of ice and serve the cocktail.
