Mr. Bali Hai

Mr. Bali Hai tropical cocktail with dark rum, light rum, coffee liqueur, pineapple juice, lemon juice, and simple syrup

Mr. Bali Hai is a 60s-era tiki recipe from the Bali Hai restaurant in San Diego, saved for posterity in Jeff “Beachbum” Berry’s Intoxica! cocktail book. It was named for Mr. Bali Hai himself, a tiki statue outside the restaurant.

It’s typically served in a tiki mug (extra points if you can get your paws on the official mugs Bali Hai uses), but it has a lovely (if quite brown) gradient effect in a glass.

Compared to other rum-coffee-pineapple cocktails, this one is quite coffee-forward, with pineapple and lemon coming through and rum in the background.
