Just finished my bottle (hand carried by loyal friend from the islands to the mainland) of Kahana & looking to order online - thanks for the internet wines posting! Currently enjoying a:

Hawaiian Latte:

1 1/2 oz. Starbucks liqueur
3/4 oz. Kahana Royale (that's all I had left!)
1/2 oz. Cream

Mix over ice in a fun shaped daiquiri glass. Float Amaratto on top.

This is my current favorite use for Macadamia Nut Liqueur. It's a fairly obvious derivative of the "Pink Cloud" that occurred to me one evening while I was sitting at the bar at the Emeryville Trader Vic's...

The Island Cloud

1 Ounce Macadamia Nut Liqueur (Trader Vic's)
1 Ounce Clear Creme de Cacao (Bols)
1 Ounce Evaporated Milk

Combine ingredients in shaker, and shake furiously with cubes until shaker starts to frost. Strain into martini glass.

Enjoy.

I'm a little bummed out about this Macadamia Nut Liqueur. I have a bottle of it but the first time I tried it, I got an allergic reaction. Since then it's just been sitting up on my shelf taking up space. The weird part is that I can eat macadamia nuts, so what's up?

I am allergic to some other nuts, such as walnuts and filberts. I am also allergic to Hazelnuts and my suspicion is that there might be some Hazelnut mixed in with the Macadamia nuts.

Do any of you have a clue as to what all of the ingredients are that are actually in this stuff?

Does my Hazelnut theory sound plausible?

After just a few sips of a drink that used the Macadamia Nut Liqueur, my neck and cheeks started to swell up. I immediately took some Benadryl which seemed to help.

No more Macadamia Nut Liqueur for me...

You can make a drink similar to a B & B mist. Mix one once of it with an once of 15-y-o El Dorado Demerara and crushed ice. Sip out of a snifter. Unless you have allergies.

I've modified my version of the Prince Kuhio and now the better (IMO, closer to the one I had at Plantation in Kauai) recipe is:

2 oz Macadamia Nut Liqueur (I like Kahana Royale)
1.5 oz Amber Rum ( I used Pritchard's tonight... it's pretty good)
2 oz pineapple
.75 oz of OJ
dash of marischino syrup
teaspoon of lemon juice

Served the Puhi Split at the Pre-Hukilau party last night. VERY popular! Thanks for the recipe.

Try the Irish Nutjob from Kahuna Kevin's "Why is the Rum Gone?"

Great drink...not too sweet like most of the other cocktails that use macadamia nut liqueur.

Is that Marischino Liqueur or the syrup from a jar of Marischino cherries

It's actually the syrup from that jar.

I'd try the Luxardo though - why not. My tastes also run more toward the bitter and sour.
Just like my demeanor.

Now shut up, I'm sulking.

I have a memory of you squeezing many, many, many limes at Benz's house. Just sayin'.

I have a recipe in my book that uses Trader Vic's macadamia nut liqueur. And thanks for reminding me. I need to make a new recipe for my second volume.
