Boo Loo

It's Memorial Day weekend an we have limited ingredients at our rental house in Palm Springs. Luckily the Tiki+ app has a search by ingredient function. So far we've had Admiral Schley Punch, Cinerama Punch, and now the Boo Loo!

a few small chunks fresh pineapple
2 ½ oz unsweetened pineapple juice
1 ½ oz fresh lime juice
1 oz honey mix
1 ½ oz Demerara rum
¾ oz 151-proof Lemon Hart Demerara rum
¾ oz dark Jamaican rum
1 ½ oz club soda
Put everything—except soda—in a blender. Blend without ice until pineapple is liquefied. Add soda. Pour unstrained into a hollowed-out pineapple filled with crushed ice (use a Vacu-Vin pineapple corer), or into a 36-oz snifter filled with crushed ice. In either case, stir until well-chilled before serving.

Hai Karate

It's a big night tonight. Obama just announced the death of Osama Bin Laden. We needed a "kick ass" drink to watch the coverage. Might have two.
1 oz fresh lime juice (I used lemon)
1 oz unsweetened pineapple juice
1 oz orange juice
1 tsp maple syrup (Mr Berry says grade A only but B is always better)
1 dash Angostura bitters
2 oz amber Virgin Islands rum
Shake well with ice cubes. Pour unstrained into a tall glass. Garnish with a lime wedge and orange slice speared to a cocktail cherry.
