I'm only coming to after my bout at Tonga Hut:
-Latin Liver
-DB Punch
-???
-Rum Runner

As the bartender was shuffling some bottles around on the top shelf, what did I spy but 2 bottles of Ed Hamilton left over from the prior Sunday's Rum Rhum Club! I tried some of the 151 neat (as my drink was being prepared) and I felt like I was 22 tasting straight alcohol for the first time. WOW that is some strong shit! Yes less smoky, yes more of a punch. I'd like to try it again at home in one of my own drinks, but I sort of have the feeling that I might not like it as much as the Lemon Hart, or maybe I'm just used to LH.

Molokai Mike. Recipe per "Introducing Original Polynesian Tropical Bar Recipes" booklet by Dick Moano and Wally Turnbow. Doubled the recipe to fit the glass. Used El Dorado 5 year in the top layer:

Three dots and a dash with improper garnish.



First time making or trying this drink and I really thought I would enjoy it more. I don't see any dedicated discussions about this one so I may start a thread for it when I have some time.

Mike - I always make my own Falernum. This helps out the Three Dots immensely. Tweak the ingredients and mix it to your liking and you will find that it can be a tasty drink.

Three Dots & A Dash is one of my faves.

I do tweak the recipe, mine runs as:

1 oz lime
1 oz fresh orange
1 oz 1:1.25 honey mix
1/4 oz pimento dram (home made)
1/4 oz falernum (Taylors)
1 1/2 oz agricole
1/2 oz demerara
3 or 4 dashes of bitters

Blended

In comparison to Luna - I found comparing Taylors to homemade falernum, Taylors was preferable because it's got a lime & clove flavour without a lot of gingery zing.

My homemade pimento dram is subtle, which can suit the drink too.

Doubling the lime / orange / honey you get a bit more fruity flavours to work with so prevent the drink being quite small (with lots of ice).

I spy in your picture the Clement in the back, IMO it's a bit light & if paired with El Dorado 12 it may have lacked punch (they are still both great rums) - you could alway try 50:50 agricole & demerara if you wanted it heavier.

I favour the combos of Clement VSOP & LH151 or Saint James Rhum Vieux & El Dorado 8 (the LH151 heavies up the drink with Clement, the SJ Rhum Vieux is heavier itself).

FYI, the
Mai Kai SOS is a great tasting alternative if you don't like the agricole taste or don't have it on hand

AdorAdam, I don't think Taylors Falernum is available here, at least I have never seen it.

Taylors 'velvet' falernum looks like:

Or

(I think that's the old label)

I've recently picked up some Fee Bros (not available in the UK) & some Bitter Truth - I'll get round to posting my thoughts eventually.

What are y'all using?

I like my Falernum to be dark and cloudy. I think we do have the old bottle of that here. I don't think it has any flavor though... I really like to make my own, you can tweak whatever recipe you are using to suit your tastes. I try to always have some homemade stuff on hand.

I made my own recipe after combining a few off the internet.

It looks like you're in San Diego, in which case any BevMo will carry it. I personally and strongly prefer B.G. Reynolds' falernum but settle with Taylor's because it doesn't spoil outside the fridge and I can get it at a moment's notice.

Thanks Ad and Luna for the tips. I followed a recipe I saw on the Raining and Pouring instagram which specified ED 12 and Clement VSOP. When comparing the recipe to the Total tiki app, I found the ingredients and proportions were identical but Berry calls for a blend whereas RAP says shake like mad (which is what I did). My two skimps were using Tropicana carton OJ and not fresh squeezed (I usually use Trader Joe's fresh tangerine juice in place of OJ with great success but was out) and I used Fees falernum. I recently picked up Taylor's Velvet Falernum which I have preferred over Fees in the couple recipes I compared them, so was trying to work my way through my old Fees bottle. Next time I'll definitely stick with Velvet. And going with LH151 instead of ED 12 to give it more punch sounds excellent to me.

I've really grown to love St Elizabeth's and enjoy spicier drinks but felt the proportions of this one were off balanced and it could use more sweetener. And as you point out, it's also a small drink, so doubling up on the juices and honey sounds like a move in the right direction. I shall tweak and report back.
