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.

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.
