California – The Mai Tai

wpid-IMG_20140204_172355_089.jpg
EWW coconut!  Seriously, that’s all I could think of when I drank this.  I just don’t like coconut or coconut flavored things.  But for the challenge at http://www.buzzfeed.com/hannahcgregg/whats-your-home-states-signature-cocktail I had to drink the Mai Tai anyway.  I returned to the APL to try this concoction.

Recipe : 1 shot each of spiced rum and coconut rum, grenadine, pineapple juice, orange juice

Seriously, I just hated this drink.  I drank all of it, for the sake of my blog, but it tasted awful to me.

Taste:             2     People who like coconut might score this higher.  But it is my blog, my rules

Difficulty:     8    My bartender was familiar with this drink, but was used to making it a little differently.

Lushiness:    6     This drink was not that strong, despite the 3oz of booze, it was watered down by the juices

Overall Score : 5.33
