Kaboom - that's the sound of 1 and 1/2 ounces of 151!:

Drink 18. Kapu Kai

Ingredients used:
Fresh lime juice
Homemade simple syrup (1.5 sugar to 1 water)
Lemonhart 151

I have to admit that I was skeptical. It's a 3-ingredient drink with the sole rum being the Lemonhart 151. While it is certainly very strong, it is still rather enjoyable. That being said, do not drink this if you aren't looking for a strong-rum forward tropical drink.

Pleasantly, all three ingredients in this drink attack your palate in separate waves. First, the sweetness of the lime,rum, and syrup, then the sourness of the lime, and finally the lasting strength and smoky heat of the Demerara rum.

Overall I enjoyed this drink, but still, I don't think I would make it again. It is missing some of the more exciting elements I have come to love about tiki - interesting fruit juices, syrups, and combining rums.

My personal rating: *** (3) out of ***** (5)
