Review:

Slightly sweet and strong. According to Vic, "One sip and you may see a Menehune."

History:

Adapted from a recipe in Victor Bergeron's 1947-72 Trader Vic's Bartender's Guide.

You can't see or talk to a menehune until you drink some Menehune Juice. So drink some.
MENEHUNE JUICE
1 lime
½ ounce orange curaçao
¼ ounce rock candy syrup
¼ ounce orgeat syrup
2 ounces Trader Vic light Puerto Rican rum
Squeeze lime juice over shaved ice in a mai tai (double old fashioned) glass; save one shell. Add remaining ingredients and enough shaved ice to fill glass. Hand shake. Decorate with one spent lime shell, fresh mint, and a menehune.

Victor Bergeron, 1972
