Aussie Beachcomber (Australian Mai Tai Cocktail)

READY IN: 4mins
Recipe by NorthwestGal

From the wikibooks site article on searching for the best Mai Tai cocktail, this is the Australian version that differs from the original recipe in that it uses fresh mint leaves and spiced rum (instead of dark rum), and it's garnished with a delicious spear of mulled pineapple.

My 17 yo's all dressed up for a date. If she looked any hotter in her new dress she'd burn to the ground. I need another one... Made for ZWT#8~AU/NZ.
