I got my hands - finally - on an edible orchid so I just had to do a Tiki Drink, right? Based on the classic Tiki cocktail, the Mai Tai, I've again played with the rules - a lot - and had a little fun with a classic. Mostly because I was out of Orange Curacao and only had the Blue variety on hand and, dammit, I wanted to use that orchid before it died!
LOST MAI TAI
(As in, "I lost my tie after drinking too many of these.")
1 Oz. Bacardi Silver
1 Oz. Bacardi Gold
1 Oz. Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum
1 Oz. Fresh Lime Juice
2 Oz. Fresh Pineapple Juice
1/2 Oz Bols Blue Curacao
1/2 Oz. Orgeat Syrup
1 Tablespoon Cream of Coconut
GARNISH: 1 Edible Orchid, Cocktail Umbrella, Parrot Swizzle Stick
TOOLS: Cocktail Shaker

Add the ingredients to a blender and give them all a nice whirl until they're all blended together and slushy.
Pour into your chilled glass, garnish and serve.
Take your tie off before drinking and put it somewhere safe. Or not.
