Review:

A trio of base spirits blend harmoniously in a cocktail of which Trader Vic himself said, "You know that adios means good-bye. You drink two or three of these, and it's adios, believe me, it's adios."

His original recipe calls for "light Puerto Rican rum" and I originally interpreted that as a charcoal-filtered light white rum. However, I've since found this cocktail works best with a light rum with a little more age and character.

History:

Adapted from a recipe in Victor Bergeron's 1972 Trader Vic's Bartender's Guide.

You know that adios means good-by. You drink two or three of these, and it's adios, believe me, it's adios.
