Excellent concoction which seems to blend the best-loved characteristics of a Mai Tai and a Hotel Nacional into a well-balanced drink. I used fresh squeezed pineapple juice, homemade orgeat and subbed Real Mccoy 12 year and Marie Brizzard Apry in my attempt. I also served it "up" (á la Hotel Nacionales) and found that it works just as well as a "fancy cocktail" as it does as a tiki drink. Great job!
