Mai Kai No

I was going to compare the Mai Kai No to the Mai Tai or Zombie, but it is its own monster. It's one of those tart tikis with lots of lime juice and only orgeat syrup to sweeten it and add a nutty complexity. Passion fruit sets it apart from the rest, and passion fruit syrup mixed with sugar is sweeter than the plain juice. Put this drink in an opaque tiki mug because the orange colored syrup and dark rum really make an unappealing brown liquid, but just taste it and you'll recognize the burst of tropical flavors that this tiki packs.
  • 2 oz. light rum
  • 2 oz. dark rum
  • 1/2 oz. 151-proof rum
  • 2 oz. lime juice
  • 1 oz. passion fruit syrup
  • 1/2 oz. orgeat syrup
  • club soda
  • pineapple spear
Combine rums, lime juice, and syrups in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a grim faced tiki full of fresh ice. Top with soda and garnish with pineapple spear.
