Where I come from this is called selfmolestation. On ice.

I mean, leave out the cherry flavour in the vodka and we`re totally fine

I've always sided with Trader Vic being the originator of the Mai Tai,largely because his recipe is the one most consistently used as the basis whenever I've seen a bar serving them. We do a version using chilli syrup,white & spiced rum,lime juice,orgeat,triple sec,bitters,creme de cacao and a float of dark rum

spiced rum
I always wondered: Spiced doesn`t mean a certain taste, does it?
So to speak, what happens if I choose the absolute wrong end of spiced rum? Your otherwise beautiful recipe will go down to the gutter.
As a serious bar owner, and I talk to the whole board, shouldn`t you come up with your own local spice-mixture?
Avoid the overly sugary stuff and find the time to cook up something special for a week in adavnce?
Anyone? FKR?

We actually do a couple of house infusions for a variety of recipes,including some of our syrups. The problem with trying to get a consistent mix for a spiced rum is that it depends on so many factors to the point where it's not cost or effort effective. If we were more focused on tiki style drinks then it'd be something to consider

I`ll take a Trusty Chords, quick estimation tells me it contains the most alcohol of the three

That it does. It's also named for a Hot Water Music song by the same name,which features a chorus of "I hate this place but I love these chords: An empty fate just means an even score. And the Pain this morning,that's in my head. It's Jameson's,it means that I'm not dead"
