Rum • Sweet
Feisty Meister

Dave Fernie and Mary Bartlett of Honeycut, L.A.’s space-age-meets-tiki nightclub, whipped up this flaming cocktail. Made with a blend of tropical fruit juices (OJ, lime juice and passionfruit syrup) as well as three types of rum and orgeat, it’s as classic tiki as it gets—with a hit of herbal heft from some Jägermeister.
