The Lono Tiki Cocktail
Lynn Calvo, owner of Lynn’s Hula Hut in Montauk, New York, knows a thing or two about tiki cocktails. The proof? She wrote an entire book of them, Tiki with a Twist. But one of our favorite recipes is the Lono. Made with rum, hazelnut liqueur and Coco Lopez, the potent beverage is named after the Hawaiian god of fertility because, well, use your imagination.
1½ ounces coconut rum
1½ ounces light rum
½ ounce Frangelico or other hazelnut liqueur
3 ounces mango nectar
2 ounces Coco Lopez or other cream of coconut
¼ fresh banana
¼ ounce dark rum
1 ounce shredded coconut
1. In the bowl of a blender combine the coconut rum, light rum, Frangelico, mango nectar, Coco Lopez, banana and 1½ cups of ice. Blend on high until smooth.
2. Fill a tall glass with crushed ice and pour in the cocktail. Float the dark rum on top and finish with whipped cream and shredded coconut.
