Jeff “Beachbum” Berry has spent years uncovering the recipes for original tiki drinks from the ‘30s and ’40s. The Nui Nui—featured in Berry’s book Beachbum Berry’s Sippin’ Safari—was originally made by Don the Beachcomber, circa 1937. Even though it’s blended, this is no cheesy boat drink—it has complex flavors of cinnamon, allspice, and vanilla mixed with rum and fresh juices.
Allspice liqueur (a.k.a. Pimento or Allspice Dram) is available at specialty liquor stores. We like the St. Elizabeth brand distributed by Haus Alpenz.
