Aloha!
Anybody have the recipe for 'Sneaky Tiki'? It is a drink served on the Cap'n Andy's Tour on Kauai. My husband & I are heading to Kauai this year & I was perusing the
activities, etc. & this was listed as one of the drinks on his tours.
I would love to know what is in it, how it is made or just something quite similar.
Anyone been on one of his tours & had this drink? If so, your opinion/review would be great!
Thanx!

I don't know if this is THE Sneaky Tiki, but it's A Sneaky Tiki:

1 oz. lemon juice
1-1/2 oz. pineapple juice
1/3 oz. Orange Curacao
Dash Grenadine
1 oz. each, Light and Dark Rum

Blend with a scoop of crushed ice. Serve in 14 oz. chimney glass.

Is this the same Sneaky Tiki as the one from Harvey's in Tahoe? I don't know the recipe for that, either, just curious.

I think there is a recipe for Trader Dick's Sneaky Tiki in Taboo Table. Trader Dick's was based on/ripped-off from Harvey's.

I just downed a Sneaky Tiki. This drink tastes like a "classic tiki" drink. By classic, I mean any drink you might get at an Asian or quasi-tiki joint that sells "exotic" drinks. I think its the lemon, pineapple and grenadine. It wants to be a mai tai but lacks the lime and orgeat. What a difference those two make.

I'm not saying it's bad, but I think you can cut back on the pineapple.

That would be a second or third rate Tiki drink. A "classic tiki" drink is going to be first rate. Unfortunately in this case, classic and prolific are two different things.

Isn't a properly made Trader Vic's Mai Tai a classic Tiki drink?

You're right. That is the reason for the quotes around the word classic. I think I will try it again only using the falernum as in the recipe above. I used the word classic to mean in the sense that most of the public thinks when they hear the word classic tiki drink.

your gist was clear- you meant the lay public's stereotype, i.e. "umbrella drinks."
