As you likely know, tiki drinks have quite a history. While we won't get into all the details now, we will make this old-ass drink. Well, it's not that old...just from the 1950's. Okay, so maybe it is kinda old.
Originally from Bali Ha'i At The Beach in New Orleans, it's a great example of just how misleading a good tiki drink can be. All those cute and frilly garnishes make some folks think they're drinking a "fu-fu" drink meant for the ladies.
We have news for you - this drink is no fu-fu drink. It's packed with booze.
Like with all of our cocktails, we urge you to please drink responsibly. Especially when you have 4 ounces of booze in one cocktail!
1 oz fresh-squeezed lime juice
1 oz fresh-squeezed orange juice

.5 oz simple syrup
