Trader Vic tweaked this one a lot as did Don The Beachcomber. Neither of them originated the drink, but they took a lot of time perfecting it. The version presented here is based on a recipe by Beachbum Berry. This is the single serving version of the popular communal, bowl cocktail.
Combine all the components except the dark rum in a shaker. Add ice and shake vigorously. Pour over ice into a collins glass or tiki mug. Carefully pour the dark rum into the glass -- it should float to the top. Garnish with an orange wedge and a single straw.
