This recipe bears little similarity to the notorious Hand Grenade served by the three Tropical Isle Bars and the Funky Pirate bar in New Orleans, USA. Marketed as 'New Orleans' most powerful drink' and served in long plastic half-yard hand-grenade shaped vessels this green melon flavoured proprietary drink is available as a pre-mix by mail order from tropicalisle.com. In the USA the operators of Tropical Isle have trademarked Hand Grenade so preventing other establishments not licensed by Tropical Isle from selling cocktails of this name.
