Drink Of The Week - Molokai Mary

Ok, so the drink is actually called a Molokai Mike, but it's Mother's Day today. Ladies, I lift a cyber toast to us all who could use one of these at the end of every single day. Recipe courtesy of Trader Vic's Tiki Party.

Bottom Layer
1 ounce silver rum
1 ounce orange juice
1 ounce lemon juice
1/2 ounce brandy
1/2 ounce orgeat syrup*
1/2 cup crushed ice

Top Layer
1 ounce gold rum
1 ounce grenadine
1 cup crushed ice

1. Combine the Bottom Layer ingredients in an electric blender and pulse for 1 to 2 seconds, just until blended.
2. Pour into a Molokai Mike glass ('cuz you have one, right?) or double old-fashioned/highball glass.
3. Combine the Top Layer ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth, about 15 seconds.
4. Gently pour over the mixture in the glass.
