Mr. Bali Hai
A tropical fruit, used in many tropical cocktails for its sweet flavor and yellow color. You can either juice a real pineapple, buy pineapple canned in juice (not syrup) or buy pineapple juice in a container.
The most common fruit juice used in cocktails. This citrus juice is about 6% acid; pure citric acid. Lemon juice should be used the day it is squeezed, some like it freshly squeezed and others like it a few hours old.
A syrup made from dissolving granulated sugar (sucrose) in water. Regular simple is made by combining 1:1 sugar:water by mass, rich simple is 2:1 sugar:water by mass although only 1.5 times as sweet as regular. We always use 1:1 syrup unless otherwise noted in the recipe itself.
An alcoholic beverage flavored with brewed coffee and sugar. You can make your own, here is a recipe from Serious Eats: First, cold-brew 1/4 cup of fine ground coffee and 1.25 cups water for 12 hours in the fridge. Strain through a filer into a sealable glass jar. Make a simple syrup by combine 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water, bring to a boil to dissolve and let cool. Add the syrup to the mixture, with a vanilla bean and 1.5 cups light rum. Let the mix steep for 3 days, then remove the bean. Bottle your liqueur and enjoy!
Also referred to as silver or white, light rums are unaged, aged in steel, or aged in oak and have had their color filtered out, and usually have a sweeter and lighter taste than darker rum varieties. The name refers to these rums lighter or clear color.
A subset of aged (dark) rums that specifically come from Jamaica. These rums are highly regarded for their unusual pot-still funk, necessary for certain classic cocktails.
Shake well with crushed ice. Pour unstrained into a Mr. Bali Hai mug or tiki mug. #shake #ontherocks
