Coronado Luau Special

This recipe was recommended by Nathan Robinson who tried it with Blood Oranges. I needed to use up my Valencia Oranges though so went with the traditional Orange Juice.

This is recipe from the Luau Room at the Coronado Hotel, and noted by the inclusion in Beachbum Berry’s Grog Log.

Looking at the recipe I thought that this wasn’t very balanced and had too much juice/sugar. Turns out that’s exactly how it was. I added some Brandy and it was better, but this one likely won’t be going into rotation. I riffed a bit on the ingredients, so check the Grog Log or the Total Tiki app for the original recipe.
