Hai Karate

Hai Karate cocktail with gold rum, lime juice, orange juice, pineapple juice, maple syrup, and Angostura or tiki bitters

The Hai Karate is a perfect entry-level tiki cocktail, with only a single rum and easy-to-find juices and sweetener. Despite its relative simplicity (compared to other tiki drinks with upwards of a dozen ingredients), it’s delicious and plenty complex.

Jeff “Beachbum” Berry created this one in 1999, and you can find the original recipe in Beachbum Berry’s Remixed book. He calls for a gold Virgin Island rum, something accessible like the much-maligned Captain Morgan or Cruzan, or any aged rum you prefer. Heck, it’d even be tasty with a decent spiced rum!

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
