The Molokai Mule is neither a true mule cocktail (which typically would contain ginger beer), nor is it from Molokai – rather, it’s a 60s recipe originally from the Kon-Tiki restaurant. It is, however, a delicious cocktail, and the high proportion of juices makes for a tamer-than-usual tiki cocktail.
- 1 part Brandy or Cognac
- 1 part Light rum or Aged rum
- 1 part Dark rum
- 2 parts Orange juice
- 1 part Lime juice
- 1 part Orgeat
- 2 dashes Aromatic bitters or Tiki bitters
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into an ice-filled tall glass or tiki mug. Garnish with citrus, cherries, pineapple leaves, or any other tropical bits you have on hand.
