Polished off my Koloa Dark with some simple rum and cokes. I'm rather sad about this and will probably not be purchasing Koloa Dark again - when I first tried the mini, I was in love and coudn't wait to get a 750 ml of it. But recently I mixed it in a few cocktails and it stood out too much and had perhaps too distinct of a flavor to it. I still love the distillery and will always pimp out Koloa Coconut though!

I just looked at my copy. The revised TV's Bartender's Guide has recipes for six variations of the pousse-café. None read like anything I would be in a hurry to try, but if offered one, I wouldn't turn it down.



Those are standard PC recs, not entirely sure what they are doing in a that book though...

You also should consider turning down the drink, the purpose is more for the bartender to show of than for the enjoyment of the customer as the ingredients are selected for the visual aspect rather than flavors.

Friend brought a bottle of Abuelo 30 back from Panama so we started the night drinking some of that neat, which I'd highly recommend, then we tried out some cocktails we'd never had before off the Total Tiki app. Eastern Sour with Woodford Reserve. Felt the OJ dominated (recipe calls for 2.5 oz) so we topped em off with a little more bourbon and found a better balance. Then we had the Aku Aku Lapu which was decent enough but thinking I'd like to try a Chief Lapu Lapu before revisiting that one. Ended the night with Hart Of Darkness which we both felt was the nicest of the three mixed drinks.

Had two Old fashioned’s at Mr. Vee’s in La Mirada. It’s a restauant with an “old school” bar/lounge ( dark wood and leather booths). I think that the old fashions are up to John-O’s standards if I could be a little presumptuous. I overheard the barkeep talking mention Mai Tai’s so I asked him how he made them? His answer included pineapple juice, oj, and grenadine.I’ll stick to the old fashion’s. Btw, my wife had a lemon drop which she said was almost as good as the ones she’s had at the nearby Sharkbite bar.
Cheers

Been randomly going through the Total Tiki app and trying out things I have all the ingredients for and decided to give the Boo Loo a shot. I noticed mention in the "Spirituous Journey through Remixed" thread and on the Grogalizer that the recipe in the app is different from the one in the Grog Log/Remixed, namely an entire 1.5 oz of gold PR rum is left out, and one calls for 1 oz of honey and the other for honey mix. Unsurprisingly, I read some very varied opinions of the virtues of this drink. We decided to try it with Coruba, El Dorado and LH151, leaving out the gold Puerto Rican and used an ounce of warm liquefied honey rather than mix. The result wasn't a bad drink but definitely nothing special. I don't know that the additional rum would have enhanced the drink as the distinct rums I already had in there seemed to get lost in the shuffle. Has anyone had real success with this one? Is it something I should bother revising and revisiting or just move on?

I loved the Boo Loo (in a pineapple naturally). We made it as-is and I thought it was everything I like in a drink - strong, sweet, sour, well blended. We used Bacardi Gold and was glad to get rid of it as I don't particularly like that brand of gold rum.

I passed on the Boo Loo after 3/4 tries, like you say mikehooker, it's ok but no great shakes.

If you are in the mood for a fruity drink along the same lines - try the Spindrift from Remixed, it's quite nice.

It's good to know other people are working their way through the Beachbum Berry reciepe back catalogue, tonight I've tried a few new ones from the old Tiki+ app:

- Hawaii Kai Treasure (very light but really nice flavours, will probably make again - girlfriend really liked it)

- Cuba Kula (strong rummy flavour, will probably make again & tweak)

- Jims Special (passionfruit, tequila & rum?! It ends up with an almost agricole aftertaste... ok but odd)

2 out of 3 ain't bad!

Had a bottle of Larency Bourbon to enjoy at our work's White Elephant until it got swapped for some socks, which I promptly swapped for 8 bottles of Charles Shaw wine upon my turn. Now enjoying some crappy but quick-buzzing Shiraz.

It really is amazing how hard it is to get a good "Old Fashioned", David
such a simple cocktail, yet it really needs to be prepared properly

You would be surprised how many bartenders add 7up or soda water to it (ratio of 1/3 to one half of the cocktail, even)
I have sent back many of these abominations in a glass.
