Humuhumunukunukuapua’a

Humuhumunukunukuapuaa cocktail with gin and pineapple juice

A nightmare for cocktail app designers, a delight for cocktail drinkers, the Humuhumunukunukuapua’a is a rare specimen. It’s a gin-based tiki drink with a relatively short ingredient list for a drink of its type, but it’s perfectly balanced and eminently tropical.

We’d expect no less from self-professed “cocktail geek” Marco Dionysos of Smuggler’s Cove fame. If this is the sort of drink that gets you going, you’d be doing yourself a favor if you picked up the book it appears in – Smuggler’s Cove: Exotic Cocktails, Rum, and the Cult of Tiki. Ours is dog-eared, sticky with rum, and worth every penny.

Go nuts with the gin if you’ve got options – the more floral and fragrant, the better.
