Trying something out, here.

Here is a riff (based on what I had on hand) on Hurricane Hayward's tribute recipe for The Hukilau:

¾ oz fresh-squeezed orange juice
¾ oz fresh-squeezed lime juice
¾ oz fresh-squeezed lemon juice
¾ oz fresh-squeezed ruby grapefruit juice
½ oz honey
1 oz passion fruit syrup (½ oz each, frozen passion fruit pulp & simple syrup)
¼ oz cinnamon syrup
½ oz espresso
1 oz light rum (say, Cruzan)
1 oz dark Jamaican rum (Coruba or Myers)
1 oz aged "Spanish-style" rum (Bacardi 8 or Flor de Caña 7, etc.)

* You may need to add ½ oz to 1 oz of sugar syrup depending on your taste and the sweetness of the fresh juices. (You can always add, but you can't take out.)

(Dissolve the honey in the hot espresso first, let it cool.) Blend all the ingredients to combine, then blend with +/-1½ c. crushed ice in a top-down mixer or a blender fitted with a milkshake blade for 3ish seconds. Pour into a large (16oz) snifter glass with more crushed ice to fill. Repeat as needed.
