A ode to Home Team BBQ's Game Changer Cocktail

Our favorite version of a beloved Charleston cocktail, the Game Changer from Home Team BBQ. We always encourage you to run-don't-walk to your nearest Home Team location and enjoy one right where they came from. But on the nights when that's not an option, this homespun version is a dead ringer for the original. Only one type of rum is needed to nail the flavor, though mixing a spiced rum with a white rum is great as well. Lastly, a good quality bottled OJ works nicely (no need to squeeze fresh). Taste before serving and adjust any of the ingredient amounts as you see fit.

  • 6 ounces spiced rum
  • 1.5 cups orange juice (pulp-free; see note)
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 3 tablespoons cream of coconut
  • Freshly grated nutmeg, to garnish
  • 2 cups ice cubes
  1. Combine all ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend on high until very smooth. Taste and adjust any of the components to suit your preferences.
  2. Pour into two highball glasses and dust with freshly grated nutmeg.


You can reduce the ingredients list by just using 2.5 cups of orange pineapple juice if you prefer.
