Hey Howl, Found this with a quick Google search. Sounds pretty good to me.
Anything like yours?
0.5 oz falernum
2 oz sweet and sour ( i mix equal parts fresh lime and lemon – and an equal part simple syrup to the lime and lemon mix)
0.5 oz apricot brandy
2 dashes angostura bitters
1.5 oz light Puerto Rican rum
0.5 oz demerara rum
Mix in cocktail shaker with a glass-full of crushed ice.

Nui'umi'umi that is the exact recipe I used, out of Grog Log.

Next time I think I'll cut the sugar syrup in the sweet and sour because the drink tasted a little sweeter than it needed to. Used fresh squeezed orange, lemon, and lime, and Marie Brizard Apry, Cruzan and El Dorado 8. One of the best tiki drinks I've tried yet.

Couple of Bum Barrels. I used Myers Silver and Myers Dark and Monin Passion Fruit syrup. Very tasty although next time I’ll use my own (homemade) P F syrup. It’s early in the season and I’ve yet to make my syrups.
Cheers

Supposedly invented in the mid 40’s by Trader Vic himself.
I like anything with Ginger Beer in it.

I see this drink posted on January 20, 2015, not too long ago, by hiltiki and nu'umi'umi.

I'm going to try this. The only tequila I have is Don Julio, so I'll bet this will be pretty good.

As with so many other drinks, there are a number variations on this -- how much lime juice and tequila and ginger beer to use, shake it or stir it, etc. It helps me to know the origin, or find the recipe published in a book, that way I don't fret about not knowing who made adjustments and why.

There are several Cassis liqueurs available. The best I have found is Jules Theuriet Creme de Cassis De Dijon. I have to mail order it from drinkupny, and it's totally worth it. At this time it's about $15 for 375ml plus shipping.

Ace Explorer, I just checked and the recipe and history for this drink are all covered in Beachbum Berry's Remix, page 166.
Only difference I noticed was the amount of ginger beer the recipe calls in the book. It is 1 1/2 to 2 ounces of ginger beer. when I made my drink I just poured the ginger beer all the way to the top. I happen to love ginger anything...
I used regular cheap bottles of liquor like El Jimador for tequila and Hiram walker for Cassis. It tasted really good anyways.

Thanks, hiltiki, that's very good to hear, the drink doesn't need high-end stuff to taste great. I'm looking forward to trying it and playing with it. The drinks with ginger beer are still relatively new to my palate. Last year a friend got into making Moscow Mules, copper mugs and all, and he's full-on into the ginger beer flavors. I'll invite him over to try this with me.

Cheers!

Had a really nice time at the Lei Low in Houston the other night. Really friendly staff, good atmosphere, and nicely mixed drinks. The only thing I found odd was that they do a Hawaiian style Mai Tai instead of Vick, which I reluctantly tried at the bartenders urging and it was the only thing about the experience that wasn't top notch. The garnish was lovely though. I hung out for two hours, had three cocktails, sampled quite a few rums including the new Hamilton 86 and 151, as well as their homemade syrups. Left with a menu, mai tai glass, swizzle sticks, stickers and the tab was more than reasonable. Two thumbs up.

Mai Tai


B-26 Marauder


Tonight, it's a Mai Tai done the way I love it.

El Diablo
In Sept. of last year I posted a recipe for this drink from a source online that I cannot find now.This source claimed that the Trader himself invented this drink in 1946. Hiltiki posted a slightly different recipe ( Ginger Ale as opposed to Ginger Beer). Ace, I have only had em with a Higher-end Tequila and Reeds Ginger Beer. Searching for the same source I found this one which calls for Ginger Ale
Btw, I favor Reeds and Bundaberg Ginger Beers


History of the El Diablo Cocktail in Trader Vic's Books Source; Alcademics website


Mexican El Diablo

1/2 lime
1 ounce tequila
1/2 crème de cassis
Ginger Ale

Squeeze lime juice into a 10-ounce glass; drop in spent shell. Add ice cubes, tequila, and crème de cassis. Fill glass with ginger ale.


It Is in the 1946 TV Book of Food and Drink- It is called a "Mexican El Diablo" and it IS singled out as an original cocktail.

It is in the 1947 TV Bartender's Guide again as a "Mexican El Diablo", but does not declare it an original- although that book does not specify.

It's not in the TV Kitchen Kibitzer 1952

IT IS in the TV Pacific Island Cookbook of 1968, but now called "El Diablo" only

IT IS in the TV Bartender Guide Revised 1972 as an "El Diablo", but does not say it's his. This edition DOES call out original drinks.

A bit confusing but who cares-let’s all have a drink!
Cheers

Nui, great additional info, and great points! It's fun to try the different variations. My bar is rum-centric, and I'm looking forward to trying some of these tequila-centered drinks and variations.

Can I ask what your amount of the Clement Creole Shrub is? I've been getting curious to try it as I know the hype is likely justified. It substitutes the orange curacao, correct?
