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!
