COMPLETE LIST OF ENTRANTS
After shaking, pour over crushed ice in Moai-shaped Tiki Mugs.
I just call it a gringo-ized Pisco Sour, but I could easily see calling it an Aku Aku, or some other Easter Island influenced name...
Of course, Pisco Capel is not seen in many bars, so that is the one strike against this drink. But it's a start.
Atomic Tiki Mai
Mix 1-2 oz. of this concoction with
Pour into an iced Tiki Mug
You are now Atomic Tiki powered!
A refreshing tropical cocktail that will blow you away!
Stir and serve over the rocks in a tall 8 oz. Tiki mug.
For a less sweet version, skip the grenadine.
The Tiki Torch
Add lime juice, Rum, mint leaves and
Well, this one's off the top of my head. Untried, unproven, but gets the basic idea from a Golden Colada.
Serve over crushed ice.
Ok, I've tried this out and it seems to work. I used Appleton Estate VX for the rum, Disaronno for the ameretto, and the usual juices. Those who like a sweet drink, lessen your grip on the fresh lime. For those who like it sharp, please tighten your grip. I'd go for normal ice rather than crushed, and for those who want to see pink elephants sooner than later could do worse than to add an ounce of decent brandy.
The Jab's Knockout
After much trial and error, and a few hangovers later, here's my entry:
Shake with plenty of cracked ice. Strain into double old-fashioned glass or small tiki mug filled with crushed ice. Top with 1 oz. soda water. Garnish with pineapple chunk, orange slice, and cherry.
OK, before it's too late here is my entry. This is the Kava based cocktail I have been working on for a couple of years. The Kava alone may disqualify it, as might ease of making it, but it's pretty exotic. This is the best mix I have come up with so far, although I do have variations. It is a mix of Fijian Kava and rums with passion fruit, banana and coconut flavors. All native flavors of the Fiji islands. I based it on the Zombie and I call it the Cannibal.
Editor's Note: As we were unable to secure any Kava, and a suitable replacement for it was not viable, we were not able to try the drink.
The Reverb Crash
Ok -This is what I came up with:
Put in a shaker with half a cup of crushed ice, shake well and put in a Tiki mug - I guess a 14-16 Oz one , add crushed Ice to fill. Garnish with, eh- I dunno - half a grapefruit, ok, no - with a mint sprig.
* You can use more Orgeat if you want - it depends how strong the taste of the syrup is. The idea is to just feel a bit of it. I used Monin brand which is very strong.
The Voodoo Priest
Shake with ice, pour with ice into highball glass.
The unique complex flavor of the El Dorado Special Reserve permeates through the drink, so I think its important to use that brand, but I'd bet another dark rum would be tasty too.
First, log on
to Ebay and buy a vintage mug that you spend a just little too much money
Receive mug and unwrap.
Blend well. Pour into Tiki Mug. Garnish with Orange Slice, Pineapple Cube and Maraschino Cherry.
I deleted the Orange Bitters because it has come to my attention that those are difficult to come by in many locales.
I've tried several of the others (some more than once, now) and ALL are wonderful
White Hawaiian, AKA The Haole)
Alright, here is my recipe that is sure to lose because it contains Malbu Rum and does NOT contain anything fruity:
Combine all ingredients over ice and stir. As you drink, feel oncoming sense of comfort and fear as you realize that you just drank something with Malibu Rum in it that you actually enjoyed. Next, see irony in thinking Jimmy Buffet is crap while at the same time thinking Martin Denny is some kind of genius. Realize it's all just music.
Well, this drink may not have that exact affect on you, but I would like to point out that the ingredients are easy to find and it is easy to make. In fact, I ordered it at the Bahooka. Not to mention I think it tastes good. Besides, it'll get you drunk (although probably not as quickly as the other recipes submitted) and isn't all that really matters?
Editor's Note: Some of the judges wondered if this wasn't already a published drink. We didn't disqualify it though.
Shake well with cracked ice. Pour into a chimney glass. Garnish with a slice of orange and cherry and a sprig of pineapple sage if available. (I grow it in my yard and can send some down.)
In a tiki mug it's "Tiki Blood" but any other time I like "Pirate's Blood" It's a pretty red color (would look great in a skull mug!) It's sweet like all of us here on TC, superduper easy to make and order in ANY bar (they all have Creme de Almond and Captain!) To sour it up you may add a dash of sweet & sour or lime but how listed it tastes like cotton candy. mmmmmmmmm!
Mix/shake/stir/whatever makes you happy with lots of ice. Strain, pour over some cracked ice. Float some DARK rum on top, yummm. I used Meyers.
You could garnish it with a cherry...what the hell. Oh, one last thought: I made a version with a teaspoon of brandy thrown in, less sweet, even stronger, very good. But this is fine.
I'll say one thing, it is efficient. I couldn't have written this sober.
This drink does need a faintly silly name, I suppose. Can't think of one at the moment. Tangeriki? Ow.
Shake vigorously with ice for a minute or two and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a lime twist on the rim of the glass. Perfect for brunch or anytime!
