Not tiki:

Drink 34: Hawaiian Room

Ingredients I used:

Fresh lemon juice
Pineapple Juice (Dole)
Lairds Applejack (bottled in bond)
Controy Triple sec (not Cointreau)
Flor De Cana - 4 Year - Light Rum

This is an interesting cocktail more akin to a classic craft cocktail, rather than a tiki drink. The alcohol stands out in front, while the lemon and pineapple provide a refreshing citrus background. The applejack brings a bit of heat, and helps make the drink less one-dimensional. I definitely recommend using the 100-proof (bottled in bond) applejack; it works great in cocktails.

All that being said, the cocktail is not all that memorable. There are plenty of other variations of this type of cocktail that need our attention.

My personal rating: ** (2.5) out of ***** (5)
