The Pupule (also known as the Nui Nui) is a classic Don the Beachcomber recipe hailing back to at least the mid-30s, preserved for the ages in Beachbum Berry’s Sippin’ Safari. “Pupule” means “crazy” in the Hawaiian language, but this drink is surprisingly refined, with bright citrus flavors slowly giving way to complex spices.
Shake all ingredients with crushed or pebble ice (or flash-blend for a few seconds) and pour unstrained into a pilsner, tiki, or tall glass. Top with more ice as needed, and garnish with a slice or twist or orange and a fat sprig of mint, slapped first between your palms to release the oils. Serve with a straw.
