Miehana with Flaming GarnishThe Miehana is my go-to umbrella drink; it’s yummy, easy to make and is fruity without beating you over the head with the rum. It’s a modern invention, not an old-school Tiki-drink but I like it.

Combine the following in a shaker ⅔ full of ice

1 ounce of fresh lime juice
1 ounce of orange juice
1 ounce of unsweetened pineapple juice
1 ounce of Grand Marnier
1 ounce of gold Virgin Islands rum
1 ounce of coconut-flavored rum

Shake well and pour, unstrained, into a double old-fashioned glass or a Miehana mug (crafted by TikiFarm but only available on ebay currently). Add ice as needed to fill glass. Alternately, you can make one-and-a-half and fill a hurricane glass!

Flaming garnish is inspired by the out-of-print book, Pad: The Guide to Ultra-Living. I’m working on a separate post just about the flaming garnish. Short story is leave a bit of bread on the counter overnight and douse it with lemon extract (found with vanilla extract with spices at your grocer).

Recipe from Beach Bum Berry Remixed.

Seriously, if you attempt a flaming garnish please be safe; have an Multi Purpose Fire Extinguisher on hand.
