I love the Jungle Bird Luna! What dark rum are you using?

What else with Campari are you drinking?

How is the El Dorado 21 thePorpoise? Have you got a 12 /15 year comparison in the works?

I had one tiny lime that yielded 3/4 oz of juice... so I'm having a Mai Tai

AdorAdam - I used Coruba dark and Cruzan Black Strap in my Jungle Birds. I also have been making Negronis with the Campari. That is about it. When I was in Mexico earlier this year, there was a bottle of Campari. I made some drinks with Campari and Mezcal, but only a couple of us liked them.

it's fantastic, i've sipped it w/splash of water. tastes like a manhattan and a maitai blended together.

dont have any 12/15 on hand, but maybe i'll compare it with Appleton Estate 21....

I'd like to try a LH151 float in my next Mai Tai. Approximately how much do you pour to heighten and not destroy the flavor profile of the drink?

So jealous Ad! The Porpoise, Ein Prosit!



Mai Tai Throwdown tonight. Finally got my hands on some B.G. Reynolds' orgeat thanks to a recent trip to the Chicago homestead. Tonight was the first chance to try a head-to-head Mai Tai tasting comparing Blair's product with the homespun vetsion.

By a nose, the wife and I give the nod to Blair. Time to tell all my Chicago friends and family that the price of coming down to visit me in the Sunshine State is a bottle of Reynolds' orgeat!

I also picked up a bottle of the B.G. hibiscus grenadine and am looking forward to giving that a spin.

I never thought I'd have the opportunity to enjoy both a Trader Vic drink and a Tiki Ti drink at The Mai-Kai. Tonight was such an occasion, an event featuring a flight of cocktails from "Beachbum Berry’s Potions of the Caribbean" ...


Virgin Island Kula, by Ray Buhen of the Tiki-Ti in Los Angeles.


Myrtle Bank Punch, by Trader Vic. Originally made at the Myrtle Bank Hotel in Kingston, Jamaica.

Also on the menu: The Queen's Park Hotel Super Cocktail from the Queen's Park Hotel, Port-of-Spain, Trinidad.
To round out the evening, I mixed in The Mai-Kai's Floridita Daiquiri, Deep Sea Diver and Samoan Grog.

A few more photos are posted here:

Story and more photos coming soon:

Okole maluna!

On the left, in the Michelob fluted glass is a Virgin Sour, recipe from the defunct Honolulu Restaurant in Alexandria VA. Got the recipe from a Maryland/VA tiki forum somewhere a long time ago.

On the right, a Lemondrop Vodka martini sans sugar rim.

My seven year old daughter cheesing "today's term is 'Photo-bombing' I believe" both photos.

I literally just add a splash (a quick pour from a bottle with a liquor spout) of Lemon Hart, it looks like more in the picture
but yes, you don't want to overshadow the flavor profile, so be careful with how much, 1/4 oz. sounds about right.
