With all of this unpredictable weather and just the craziness of life in general, I thought perhaps this weekend we could escape to island time with a Tiki cocktail!

I picked up this beautiful TIKI glass from a wonderful spot in Sacramento, California,  called  THE WATERBOY.  I am calling this creation….


Duke Paoa Kahinu Mokoe Hulikohola Kahanamoku was a Native Hawaiian competition swimmer who popularized the ancient Hawaiian sport of surfing. Cheers to him with this Tiki Cocktail!


  • 1 1/2 oz. Spytail Black Ginger Rum
  • 1/2 oz. Bruto Americano
  • 2 oz. Pineapple Juice
  • 1 oz. Mango Juice
  • 1/2 oz. of Orange Juice


  1. Combine all ingredients in a shaker and shake.
  2. Strain over fresh ice into your favorite tiki glass and garnish with fresh fruit.
  3. Sit back and sip on this cocktail and escape for a bit.

Happy Weekend!
