Humuhumunukunukuapua’a is the tongue twisting name of this gorgeous cocktail by Marcovaldo Dionysos. It gets its pale pink colour thanks to the mix of orgeat and Peychaud’s.
Always fun to use orgeat we think. It creates this matt finish that’s quite funky on a cocktail. As the cocktail is from the Smuggler’s Cove book, it should of course be defined as a tiki cocktail. Hence we enhanced this fact by garnishing with a chimpanzee climbing a palmtree.
It’s a really tasty cocktail, sweet and sour at the same time. Also it’s interesting to do tiki cocktails based on gin rather than rum, they are not too common.
