The Molokai Mike is a famous Trader Vic's recipe, and looks pretty impressive because it is a layered drink.  Don't let that scare you though it is really easy to make. You make the Molokai Mike in two parts first make the bottom layer and then the top layer.

To make a Molokai Mike combine in a blender: 

1 oz Silver Rum

1 oz Orange Juice

1/2 oz Brandy

1/2 oz Orgeat Syrup

1/2 Cup Ice

Blend the first group of ingredients for just  a few seconds. Just enough so that is is blended, but still slushy. Pour the bottom layer into a glass.

Then, to make the top layer combine in a blender:

1 oz Gold Rum

1 oz Grenadine

1 Cup Crushed Ice

Blend the second group of ingredients very thoroughly so the mixture becomes thick. Then, slowly pour the top layer into the glass, and it will float on top of the bottom layer.  It's really pretty easy. If I can do it anyone can.  You can garnish it with some fruit or an umbrella and serve.
