Served in a highball glass, this concoction is a mix of dark rum and orange juice, layered with an energy drink to provide a jolt akin to a volcanic eruption of flavor. The combination of the sweetness and zest from the orange juice complements the rich, molasses-like notes of the dark rum, while the energy drink adds a modern twist with its unique taste and effervescence, resulting in a vibrant and potent cocktail that is both refreshing and stimulating.
