If someone volunteers, I can provide the Bacardi white. I inherited a bottle, 1.75 L size, and it's taking up space. 


Maybe the fact that the cocktail is served in a hurricane glass is a clue, because the recipe looks like a mash-up between a Hurricane and a Mai Tai. Otherwise I am not sure how to explain the passion fruit. It's just missing a touch of grenadine.

Current house spec Mai Tai that is bang for the buck all round

0.75oz Appleton V/X
0.75oz Skipper Rum
0.75oz Velho Berreiro Cachaca
0.25oz Uncle Wray
0.75oz Cointreau
0.75oz Hemp Orgeat (Not all that sweet, actually. contains almond extract)
1.00oz Lime
Angostura Bitters
Orange Bitters
Demerara syrup to taste

Everything is batched, sorry, bottle rested, except the lime.

We're on a rum blend hit actually. We put a Daiquri No.1 on the menu and as a result are selling half a dozen or so a night, versus none. That contains four different Latin rums and a mix of white and brown sugar.
Our Zombie also has four rums.
