An original of the bar at the Four Winds in Seattle, The Schooner remained its centerpiece tiki drink until the ferryboat turned pirate-themed restaurant sank to the bottom of Lake Union in 1966. “When I tell people about the Four Winds, the joke I always make is that it’s a restaurant that literally went under,” says Chris Elford, co-owner of Seattle’s Navy Strength restaurant. Using archived recipes from the University of Washington, Elford updated the local legend and now serves the blend of rum, port, and papaya at his popular Belltown bar.
