hawaii kai treasure

2 oz Lime Juice
1 oz Grapefruit Juice
1/2 oz Half & Half
1/2 oz Curaçao (Pierre Ferrand)
1/2 oz Orgeat
1/2 oz Honey Syrup
1 1/2 oz Light Puerto Rican Rum (Don Q Añejo)

Blend for 10 seconds with 8 oz crushed ice, pour into a Tiki bowl, and garnish with a gardenia (dried lemon wheel). The "treasure" was a small pearl hidden in the gardenia petals (pearl omitted).
The Tiki the Snow Away event led me to pick up Beachbum Berry's Remixed to find something tropical for the evening two Wednesdays ago. The one that called out to me was the Hawaii Kai Treasure created by Mannie "Black" Andall of New York City's Hawaii Kai Restaurant during the 1960s. Once blended and served, the Hawaii Kai Treasure greeted the nose with a nutty and floral aroma. Next, a creamy grapefruit sip led into a rum, lime, and nutty swallow with a honey-floral finish.
