hai karate

2 oz Gold Virgin Island Rum (1 3/4 oz Caliche, 1/4 oz Wray & Nephew)
1 oz Lime Juice
1 oz Pineapple Juice
1 oz Orange Juice
1 tsp Maple Syrup
1 dash Angostura Bitters

Shake with ice and pour into a tall glass. Garnish with a lime wedge and an orange slice both speared to a cocktail cherry (here, nasturtiums and mint).
Two Thursdays ago, I turned to Beachbum Berry's Remixed for a Tiki nightcap. The one that called out for my post-shift drink at home was one of Jeff Berry's originals, the Hai Karate that he created in 1999. With my mint and nasturium garnish, the Hai Karate offered a mint and peppery floral aroma. Tart lime and orange flavors on the sip flipped into rum blending into maple and pineapple on the swallow with a clove finish.
