The Nui Nui was originally created way back in the day by a tiki legend named Don the Beachcomber. It was a closely guarded secret, and the mix of ingredients in this one made it tricky for his competitors to replicate it.

Here’s an easy recipe for making a Nui Nui cocktail at home.


  • 60 ml Gold Rum
  • 15 ml Lime Juice
  • 15 ml Orange Juice
  • 7 ml Cinnamon Syrup
  • 5 ml Allspice Dram
  • 5 ml Vanilla Syrup
  • 1 dash Orange Bitters
  • A long orange twist for garnish


Blend all ingredients together with about a cup of crushed ice for 5 seconds in a blender. Pour it into a tiki mug or large glass, top with more crushed ice and garnish with an orange twist.
