This gin-based drink dates to 1967; it won California tiki bartender J. "Popo" Galsini that year's International Bartender's Association World Cocktail Championship.

Falernum, orgeat, and passion fruit syrup contribute the tropical flavors that make this tart rumless cocktail fit in with other tiki offerings. It's truly delicious.
