This mug features a cobra twined around and bursting through the stonework of an ancient Egyptian pillar decorated with lotus blossoms and with an oil brazier on top.
The name is inspired by Skipper Melissa (Melissa Nickoloff from Trader Sam's) and her cocktail, the "Temple of the Forbidden Rye" and the Indiana Jones ride in Adventureland which welcomes visitors to the Temple of the Forbidden Eye.
Melissa has stated that she wanted to do a tiki riff on "The Lion's Tail" which is a classic bourbon drink with allspice and lime. Her cocktail also seems to have some DNA from the classic tiki "Western Sour" cocktail which includes bourbon/falernum/lime (named "Zambezi Sour" on the Sam's menu). Melissa's cocktail includes:
1.75 oz rye whiskey, 0.5 oz St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram, 1 oz pineapple juice, 0.5 oz lime juice, 0.5 oz ginger syrup, 0.25 oz Falernum, and 2 dashes of Angostura bitters
From the Lost Temple Traders website:
"There are a lot of things that can kill you in the Jungle: crumbling ruins, fire, giant snakes...bad resort mai tais. If you dare brave the Forbidden Rye, the reward will be great. Based on the legendary cocktail created by Skipper Melissa."
