Three Saturdays ago, I decided to participate in the Puka Punch Challenge. These regular Instagram-driven Tikifests focus on a single drink each time chosen by California bartender El Nova. The Puka Punch was one that I had skipped over in Beachbum Berry's Remixed because it is quite the boozebomb. Luckily, I had assistance from my wife to split the damage, and it definitely felt like a Tiki Time Out after a busy Saturday night shift was in order.
