Trying something for Tiki Month 2018

Every February, the formidable Doug Winship catches tropical fever and then goes off spreading it around. Because my credo is noblesse oblige, I chip in.

This particular chip - let's call it the Fauxkilau pending a better name - 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-then-thawed passion fruit pulp -- Goya is my favorite brand -- and 1:1 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 CaƱa 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.)

1) Dissolve the honey in the hot espresso first, let it cool.
2) Blend all the ingredients to combine, then blend with +/-1½ c. crushed ice in a top-down mixer or a regular 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.

Aren't you glad you stuck around for Tiki Month 2018?

Joe, that looks great. Okole maluna! The Mai-Kai actually stopped using coffee in The Hukilau some time ago. I'll be posting an updated recipe in the near future. Stay tuned!

Jim, what made it "click" for me was dissolving the honey in the fresh, hot espresso. My wife was giddy that it had "a Mai Kai taste."

Very cool. I'll definitely give it a try. The more Mai-Kai tribute recipes, the merrier!
