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.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
