Drink recipe

During college, one of the places that was somewhat popular was the Hong Kong in Harvard Square, Cambridge, Massachusetts. They wouldn't give out the recipe for their scorpion bowls, but this is fairly close.

I think it is so named because it sneaks up on you and then gets you with a deadly sting.

Scorpion Bowl
[makes 6-8 cup 2-3 person bowl]

1 shot (1.5 oz) Dark Rum
1 shot (1.5 oz) Brandy
2 shots (3 oz) Light Rum
2 shots (3 oz) 151 Rum
2 shots (3 oz) Triple Sec
18 oz Guava Punch
2 oz Pink Grapefruit Juice
2 oz Papaya Juice
5 oz Orange Juice
mix with cracked ice
drink through big long straws
preferably served in a fun communal bowl, possibly coconut shells

Update: By the way, this is obviously more than a single drink-equivalent. It is strong, but it doesn't taste that strong. It is specifically designed to be drunk by more than one person- the restaurant wouldn't serve one to just one person. Use with extreme caution, don't drink and drive, drink responsibly. Etc. :)
