There are so so many variations of this drink because its creator, Don the Beachcomber kept it a secret for year, and as a result heaps of variations sprung up as people tried to imitate the popular drink.
Heres how I make it and I beleive it has a close resemblance to the real thing.
1 oz white rum, 1 oz gold rum, 1 0z Triple Sec, 1/2 oz lemon juice, 1/2 oz lime juice, 1 1/2 oz orange juice, 1 1/2 passionfruit pulp
Shaken, and strained onto ice, topped with float of OP rum

No Bitters. Yuck. Check Zombie #3 for the right way to make one at a tropical resort where I used to work.

No this is the recipe I was taught in school...

I thought it was light rum, dark rum, dash of angastora bitters, fill with half oj and pinnapple and then top with 151 rum. And cherry garnish, isn't it...? That's what I was thought at a bar.
