Light Cocktail Night

Did a riff on the Hawaiian Sunset cocktail, a vintage recipe from the Aku-Aku restaurant in Las Vegas, as appearing in the book Sippin Safari by Jeff Beachbum Berry.
Hawaiian Sunset
½ oz Lime Juice
½ oz Lemon Juice
½ oz Orgeat
1 tsp Grenadine
1½ oz Vodka
I try to avoid vodka when I can, and I had a full ounce of Lemon Juice so I did a little riff. The cane spirit on hand was Batavia Arrack, which has a great flavor a thousand times more interesting than vodka.
Riff Recipe
1 oz Lemon Juice
½ oz Orgeat
¼ oz Grenadine
1½ oz Batavia Arrack
Shake with ice and strain. The coupe glasses were in storage so I used this little Trader Vic’s glass instead. 
Very tasty.
