Usually 151 rum goes in a scorpion bowl recipe but Bacardi stopped making it.  I used white rum instead.
Tips for making this potent cocktail
  • Bowls can be fun to use for sharing this cocktail, but use whatever container strikes your fancy, as long as it holds 28 ounces and some ice.
  • I use more orange juice than usual in this recipe because it's a potent cocktail and the extra juice nicely balances the alcohol.
  • If you want to make this scorpion bowl less potent, you can safely skip the vodka, but don't skip the gin since it adds a distinctive flavor.
  • I use both regular maraschino cherries and Luxardo cherries.  Remember to rinse them thoroughly before placing them in the scorpion bowl.  The syrup the cherries come in is really sweet.  And who needs that?
