I’m seventy or so posts in, and today I am having a bout of writers block.  What’s a blogger to do?  Maybe it’s because it’s Blah Blah Blah Day, maybe it’s because I just wrote a check to Uncle Sam, I dunno.  Instead of wasting your time with more words, let’s just focus on the drink – the Honolulu Lulu.

  • 1.5 ounces dark rum (Myers)
  • 1 ounce light rum (Bacardi)
  • 1 ounce Frangelico
  • 0.5 ounce Kahlua
  • 3 ounces pineapple juice
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon simple syrup

Mix everything over ice and shake, serve in a tall collins glass over ice.  Garnish with a lime wedge if desired.

Dave’s Thoughts:

  • An interesting drink, nice and sweet flavor of pineapple, and the interesting taste of coffee in the background, like rum punch meets Columbia.
  • The rum disappears, although I am sure it helps the enjoyment…
  • More writers block, let’s just say its good.

Tasting Notes:

  • Dave’s Rating: 8/10
  • Strength: 6/10
  • Sweetness: 8/10
  • Try this as a great summer cocktail – you will not regret it.
