Jeff Berry's review of The Majestic’s "Ray's Mistake"

"..we must report that Ray’s secret is still safe. The Majestic’s version — an acidic construct of rum, gin, coconut milk, guava, passion fruit, pineapple, and house sour mix — is a mistake, but not Ray’s."

The secret ingredient is...Cough syrup! Nothing but plain, ordinary, over-the-counter children's cough syrup!

I HOPE no tiki drink ever contains "sizzurup" (or Lil' Wayne is gonna become an outspoken proponent of tiki bars!)

I love mysteries, and though I've never been to Tiki-Ti, I'll bring the various experiments to my local tender and see what he makes of 'em.

I've never been to Tiki-Ti (or L.A. for that matter) but this drink topic is fascinating. Googling around, looks like the bar itself describes the drink as being created when Ray grabbed "the wrong two syrups" while making an Anting Anting. If this is true, then it seems the base spirits and juices are the same in the two drinks. Everyone describes a vanilla flavor, and the pictures of the two drinks on the web show the Mistake is much redder, so it seems logical that the "mistake" = vanilla syrup and passion fruit syrup. Solve the Anting Anting and you'll have the rest.

meantime, I tried out the two recipes above: the "Colorado" mistake, and the "Hiltiki" mistake. These both made nice drinks, with similarities and differences to each other, but nothing that struck me as a memorable showcase drink for a bar to hang its hat on as the Ray's Mistake has apparently become. Hiltiki's recipe tasted like a balanced Spindrift (or a vanilla Fogcutter). The Colorado drink tasted like a more tart, less coconutty Leilani Volcano. Liked them both. (Coconut milk has a very light flavor, i could see where one might interpret that from a lightly vanilla drink)

Has anyone tried the recipe below sans the coconut and guava? Forgoing the proportions, could these ingredients form the basis of the Mistake?

• 1 oz Fresh lime juice,
• 1 oz Passion fruit juice
• 1 oz Sweet 'n Sour Mix
• 1 oz Light Rum
• 1 oz Gin,
• 1 oz Pineapple juice

With a float of Coruba

By the way, a friend of mine was at the Tiki Ti and asked what made the foam. Mike told him it was the club soda.

A clue from our city's top food/drink critic Jonathan Gold.

"a wholly proprietary blend of fruit juices, strong liquors and something with a lingering taste of almond"

OK - on Saturday I have one Mistake and one Anting. I use the Shirow666 recipe and add a small amount of vanilla and two drops of almond extract.

I fail miserably in making a Ray's Mistake, but I do make something that tastes a little like an Anting Anting.

The Washington Post article described the Zombie with the wrong ingredients and served in a large bowl... They obviously didn't have a clue.

I kinda hate to bring this topic back up but I was messing around in the home bar last night and I used a drink that called a healthy dose of Creme de Noyaux (Hiram Walker Brand).

The drink when completed reminded me distinctly of a Ray's Mistake with that sweet almondish flavor. Which is noticeably different from anything you would get with orgeat.

The Creme de Noyaux could also account for the reddish hue we get form the drink.

Once again sorry to dig up the dead horse, but I was just shaken by the flavor memory as soon as I took a sip of the drink last night.

So now I figure rum, passion fruit, creme de noyaux and maybe some other modifiers.

So could Ray's mistake have been a 'Singapore Sling' with Creme de Noyaux (Cream of Almond) used in place of another ingredient? Hence the mistake...

So, perhaps...

2oz Barton's gin
1oz lime juice
1oz passion fruit syrup
.5oz pineapple juice
.5oz Liqor 43 - (Substitute Creme de Noyaux here)
drops of vanilla extract
club soda
float Coruba

Hmmm... It seems possible after reading all the posts above and the flavors that are described in the drink.

And it fits within Tiki-Ti's website's description of the Ray's Mistake which states that it is made with Super Secret Flavor (Vanilla Extract and Creme de Noyaux), Botanic Liqueurs (Gin), Passion Fruit and Floated with Dark Corub Rum.

This might be close???

I really don't think it is made with gin at this time, but I will give this recipe a try tonight using silver rum.

Hey Rawim,

I think you're right about the drink not being 2oz. of Gin. I think that the difference between a 'Singapore Sling' and an 'Anting Anting' might be that an 'Anting Anting' has 1oz. White Rum and 1oz. Gin... It makes sense for the name change and it fulfills the drink being listed in a Rum category.

Also, the 'Ray's Mistake' is still described as "botanical"... So Gin is in there for sure. I believe this is the difference.

I think the above recipe is the key to the puzzle... Just a couple of tweeks. Substitute one of the two ounces of Gin with White Rum and substitute the Creme de Noyaux for the Licor 43.

Please keep us informed!!!
