Kamehameaha Punch (Non-Alcoholic)

This is probably the most work I've put into a non-alcoholic drink. Between all the juicing--and I actually juiced a pineapple--and making the blackberry syrup, I probably put an hour of work prepping for this one drink. No one said that making tiki cocktails was easy.

The blackberry syrup is a non-alcoholic substitute for the blackberry brandy in the Kamehameaha Rum Punch, an alcoholic tiki cocktail that I might want to do again now that I have tiki mugs.

Make it by boiling a cup of blackberries in a cup of water. Use a potato ricer to crush the berries into pulp and strain them out with a fine mesh. Return the remaining juice to the heat and dissolve 1/2 cup of sugar by stirring continuously until the solution reduces to a thick syrup.

Then you have the cocktail: here's the recipe.
  • 3 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1 oz. orgeat syrup
  • 2 oz. lime juice
  • 1 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. blackberry syrup
  • pineapple spear
Combine all ingredients except pineapple spear in a shaker with ice. Shake and pour into a grim-faced tiki mug. Garnish with pineapple and fruit.
