Bali Hai

What a fun champagne tiki! It's really acidic and dry with brut champagne and all the citrus, but stick with it. The almond syrup and grenadine give it a lovely pink color and flavor complexity but there's not enough to sweeten the drink too much. So this is an example of a tiki that makes you pucker, and a rare one with the kick from champagne fizz.
  • 2 oz. light rum
  • 1 oz. aguardiente (kirschwasser used--as any clear fruit brandy is acceptable as aguardiente)
  • 2 oz. lemon juice
  • 2 oz. lime juice
  • 1 tsp. orgeat syrup
  • 1 tsp. grenadine
  • chilled sparkling wine or champagne
Combine all ingredients except champagne in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a grim-faced tiki mug and garnish with whatever fruit you have on hand.
