You tell me!

In addition to what's below, I have honey mix, banana, soda water & bittermens tiki bitters to work with.

I'm thinking of starting with an Outrigger (lemon juice, honey mix (in place of triple sec), plantation 5yr) followed by slightly modified variants of Navy Grog, Pearl Diver or QB Cooler, hell maybe a Banana Daiquiri.

I'm leaning towards the Navy Grog - decisions decisions

Official Mai Kai Barrel O' Rum (Taboo Table) made with Cruzan aged white and Kohala Bay dark Jamaican. With 12 ounces of liquid - before ice - the only barrel mug I had that could hold it all was my original Don The Beachcomber Rum Barrel mug. Nice drink!

Round 1:

Navy Grog
   ¾ oz fresh lime juice
   ¾ oz grapefruit juice (squeezed red, all I could find - anyone use an orange instead?)
   ¾ oz soda water (Gerolsteiner)
   1 oz honey mix (made with raw Manuka honey, over minimal heat)
   1 oz light Puerto Rican rum (Cruzan)
   1 oz dark Jamaican rum (Appleton Extra 12)
   1 oz Demerara rum (El Dorado 12)

I've just built up my rum collection over the last week, so am a bit new to all of this - but this is one mean beverage. I made with orange linstead of grapefruit last week and it was delicious too. (Last year my drink was the noa noa because I had to have only one rum on hand and I have a lot of mint growing in the backyard.)

The Manuka honey is interesting, and the health benefits are appealing, but am looking forward to getting back to a more normal tasting raw honey as well. I try to eat raw and organic when possible and will be staying away from refined sugar syrups and "flavorings", using homemade raw honey mix exclusively as sweetener - I realize this limits me somewhat, but it's all good!

Another Navy Grog, but with 1.25 oz honey mix - the Manuka honey lacks sweetness - this one was much better!

I started the afternoon off with a Missionary's Downfall and have now moved on to a Krakatoa.



Sure could go for a Pu Pu platter right now.

Everyone have a safe Saturday night!

Cheers!
Chris
