So is this where the NO ON G crowd is having their victory celebration?

In honor of the Cocktail Monkey's performing at tonight's 1st Wednesday I thought I'd offer my rendition of an old time summer favorite cocktail, The Mai Tai.
While it's not looking much like Hawaiian shirt, shorts & tropical drink weather, this concoction (along with a nice paper umbrella) will certainly lift your spirits.
Just remember kiddies, don't drink & drive! It's times like this I'm glad we live about a par 4 from downtown & can walk the course home.
"THE" Mai Tai
In a tall shaker glass filled with ice combine the following
1.5 oz. Pineapple Rum
1.5 oz. Coconut Rum
1.5 oz. Spiced Rum (Capt. Morgan or equivalent)
(& here's the kicker, but trust me it works) .5 oz. Amaretto di Sarona
Top with fresh Pineapple & Orange juice, shake to combine.
Float with Dark Rum, (Meyers or equivalent)splash of Grenadine & garnish with fresh mint, pineapple wedge & of course, an umbrella. Pour into a non-red plastic to go cup & shuffle yourselves downtown.

Mahalo Grille makes a great Mai Tai... perhaps I will start off this evening there for a drink.
