This legendary concoction isn’t indigenous to Tahiti;  the nation’s Polynesian heritage inspired restaurant chain Trader Vic to invent the beverage in the 1940s. This one’s the standard that accentuates the qualities of white and dark rum, when balanced with the citrus elements and will let your tastebuds realize why this is such a classic.

  • ¾ oz. orange curaçao
  • ¾ oz. lime juice, freshly squeezed
  • ½ oz. orgeat syrup
  • ½ oz. dark rum
