This pic was taken by Trader Woody at the London Luau, they may not look overly fancy, but they contain one very special ingredient... J. Wray and Nephew 17 year old Rum or apparently how it is correctly named "Trader Vics Personal Selection" as used in the Original Mai Tai Formula.
Thanks to Stockton for his generosity in letting us drink these!

Okay, technically this is -not- a Mai Tai, its a Hula Hula. Still, I thought you would enjoy the photo.



My wife had one of these



Both from Chan's Dragon Inn in Ridgefield, NJ.

Home-built Mai Tai. She had eaten the pineapple already.

A couple of weeks ago my wife hosted a baby shower at our house. It seems I am destined to be a grandfather soon. The baby is due between Christmas and New Years Eve. The only really scary part is that means soon I will be sleeping with a grandma and I am certainly not old enough for that! Anyways, the shower was girls only which meant I wouldn't be around to be the bartender. I found this drink fountain at the local grocery store and the shower seemed a good excuse to buy a new toy. I made a kind of Mai Tai punch and left the fountain running for the shower. It was a big hit and I had a request to take the show on the road as it were and so yesterday I set up my Mai Tai fountain for a christening party. I know my Mai Tais are too pink. This is not a classic recipe. It works in the fountain though. So here's a picture of my Mai Tai fountain.

Speaking of mai tais, I was at a party recently where everyone was supposed to bring their own mixers and the hosts would provide the alcohol. So I brought TV Mai Tai mix. The only rum available at the party was Bacardi and Flor de Cana (which I'd never had). There was no shaker to be found so I simply mixed the ingredients and stirred with a swizzle. It was OK, but seemed a little off. I mentioned this to someone and they searched around and found me a shaker. I poured my drink in the shaker, shook it, and then returned the drink to my glass. Although I've always known that shaking a drink is important, I was astounded at the difference a few vigorous moves can make. The mai tai was 100% better. I shall forever "James Bond" my drinks from now on! (how's that for the invention of a new verb?)

Awesome! I'm still laughing my arse off. That's hilarious - I can hear it now: "No thanks, beer's ok, but I'll have a mai tai"!!!

I love Marlboros and Mai Tais - it's a great combination. I am sorry to report however, (well, maybe not "sorry" per se), but I quit smoking exactly one year ago yesterday. I miss my Marlboros. Boo hoo. But I've saved enuf money to accumulate a nice collection of chisels.

The Infamous Warehouse Mai Tai "With a touch of grenadine for color" Pretty to look at it but needs work.

Tikigap - so I guess you could say you traded nails for chisels.

Our Mai Tais at La Mariana Sailing Club, Honolulu, as the sun was setting over the marina, Nov 21, 2006. How can life get much better?

Yeah, it's worth it too. Thanks!

Myke - your mai tai is fabulous! I love the Sailing club - I've been there once - last year. It was great!

Delighted to hear that tikigap. How'd you do it? For me, it is more than just a notion. I've tried a few approaches. No dice. Hope to see you again, one of these days.

Thanks Foamy - It was easier than I thought. I've tried to quit many times, but this time I really "wanted" to. It's sounds trite, I know, but that was it. I had been using the patch while in Hawaii (long flights = no smoking), and it worked out that we would be staying in a guy's treehouse on the big island for a few days (treehouse = no smoking too). So I just kept using the patch until they ran out, and I didn't buy any more smokes (smokes = very expensive everywhere, but especially Hawaii).

I'm still tempted all the time, and many of my friends still smoke, but I just bit the bullet and followed Nancy Reagan's advise: Just Say No. Again, trite, but true.

Yeah! It's been quite a while since we've met. I hear there may be a tiki-themed new years party in the Washington burbs on Saturday 30 December. If it materializes, I'll let you know, and maybe we can hang.

Aloha!
