Made everyone some flaming Mai Tai's this evening


Bone style Tiki straws by Surfside Sips.


  1. What's the point of an alcoholic drink if you burn off the alcohol?

    1. Works best as a shot sized portion, for example the Flaming Armadillo. 3/4 shot of chilled tequila, 1/4 shot of Amoretto and a float of 151

    1. This is what I used. Save the lime halves after you squeeze the juice out. used them like a boat, and fill with a little 15

  3. (cont.) ...a little 151 rum, which will burn when lit by a match. otherwise, of many possible recipes, this is the one I used last night:
    2 ounces Aged Rum
    ¾ ounce Lime Juice (freshly squeezed, juiced lime half reserved)
    ½ ounce Orange Curacao
    ¼ ounce Rich Simple Syrup
    ¼ ounce Orgeat
    1 cup Ice (crushed)
    1 Mint Sprig (for garnish)

  4. Buzz's Steakhouse in Lani'kai makes a mean one if you happen to be on Oahu.
