Recipe: Blue Hawai-Tai

It’s like the Blue Hawaii and the Mai Tai had a baby. This is an original riff and I hope you like it.

Blue Hawai-Tai by Kevin Crossman
1 oz Lemon Juice
1 oz White Overproof Jamaican Rum
½ oz Aged White Rum
½ oz Orgeat
½ oz Simple Syrup
½ oz Blue Curacao

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with crushed ice. Shake and dump into a small snifter glass. Garnish with Mint and tropical fruit.

Recommended spirits:

  • Any white Jamaican Overproof rum will do fine (Wray & Nephew Overproof, Rum-Bar, Rum Fire).
  • For the white rum we recommend something with at least some pot-still component (Probitas, Denizen White, Myers’s White, Plantation 3 Star), but if you prefer something lighter than something with at least a little age such as Cruzan is recommended.
