Lapu Lapu

Yesterday I received a concerned text message from the Mother Unit asking if we were prepared for the oncoming "Frankenstorm". I informed her that yes, we had a nice stock pile of non-perishables including cereal and many cans of beans. Her exact response was "Uhm...beans? CNN says the city of brotherly love could be a direct hit. More liquor?" Well, at least I know where I get it now. Thanks for your concern mom!

I have incorporated a cocktail a day into our storm meal planning for the next couple days. In honor of this insane storm we now have the ingredients to Hurricanes and Dark & Stormy cocktails. However today we pre-gamed the storm with happy memories of tropical Disney World where we sampled the wonderful Lapu Lapu.
The Lapu Lapu was a wonderful Hawaiian style cocktail we had in Ohana, the Polynesian Resort's restaurant. The drinks were amazing and the food delicious. The Lapu Lapu is heavy on rum and fruit juices and comes in a pineapple. It was the best drink I had in Disney, hands down. Also, it's dangerous. You could probably leave out the Bacardi 151.
The Lapu Lapu
(inspired by the Polynesian Resort, Disney World)
2 parts Myers's Dark Rum
2 parts pineapple juice 
3 parts orange juice
1 part sweet and sour mix
1 part Bacardi 151 rum, floated on the top.
1. Mix the dark rum, pineapple juice, orange juice, and sweet and sour mix. 
2. Float the Bacardi 151 on the top.
3. Serve with ice, preferably in a hollow pineapple.
Sadly I did not have a pineapple but I did have an umbrella!
