Humuhumunukunukuapua'a (Smuggler's Cove)

This cocktail is aptly named after the brilliantly colored Hawaiian state fish. The cocktail itself is beautiful and flowers and fruit accent it. One of the best things about Hawaiian drinks is that there is no spirit native to Hawaii. So you can use a gin; you can use a gin from Virginia; you can even use ImaGination.

If you have the ingredients and a blender, this drink is easier to make than it is to pronounce.
  • 2 oz. gin (Murlarkey ImaGination used)
  • 2 dashes Peychaud's bitters
  • 3/4 oz. lemon juice
  • 3/4 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1/2 oz. orgeat
  • flowers/ maraschino cherry garnishes
Combine all ingredients except garnishes in a blender with cracked ice. Flash blend and pour into a chilled Old Fashioned glass. Garnish with flowers and cherry.
