An original. Throwing my gratuitous hat into the tiki ring, as I haven't found many tiki drinks that feature my favorite ingredients: Amari. Being an American concoction that bastardizes "Polynesian" cultures, might as well throw some Italian into the mix. Name comes from the failed tiki fast food chain that never came to existence. Huge tropical fruit and ginger spice balanced with a rooty, eucalyptus punch from the Amari. This was a fun, no-holds-barred concoction, but certainly not to be pulled out during the rush. Deep hip-shot right here.
