The drink we came up with is gorgeous too. Since it looked the color of a shadowed Caribbean lagoon, we called it a Pirate's Cove. This recipe is low proof and versatile. If you would like to kick up the alcohol, I suggest two ounces of Kraken black spiced rum. Otherwise, if you would like to retain the full nut breadth of this drink, go with the pour below.
1 1/2 ounces macadamia nut liqueur (we used Trader Vic's)
1 1/2 ounces pineapple juice
3/4 ounce blue curaçao
1/4 ounce fresh-squeezed lime juice
Add all ingredients into a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a coupe or cocktail glass. Garnish with a lime twist.
