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.

Mike, I love playing with words. “Lei Low” Dat’s my kine bar. Drinks look good.Yours looks awesome.
Cheers

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




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?




I used 1/2 oz in place of orange curacao. I only recently was able to find the Schrubb locally and had only used it in a mai tai along with Clement VSOP prior to this one but ED12/Appleton 12 is my next fave combo and I've always made that with shitty dekuyper in the past so figured I'd step this one up. It was nice but I think works a little better with the VSOP. Definitely a stronger flavor than the artificial stuff. I still need to experiment with it more. As you can see the bottle is still very full.

Had Mai Tai’s with my wife while playing rummy in the Sharkbite Bar. Then disaster struck! I spilled the last of the lime juice as I was gonna make us each a third.No mo limes either. Had to settle for a diet coke and Kraken. Things got worse-she won the game.

Still meticulously working my way through all The Mai-Kai cocktails that now feature Hamilton rums from Guyana. Quite a few surprises and a few recipe changes coming soon. One of the major updates is the Special Planters Punch. This photo should give you a clue:

Back in the 70’ Meyers had their recipe for planters punch printed right on the bottle. Even took a few people to court over the name “Planter’s Punch” We use to have the Myers planters punch at every chance during the summer months. Still make em in my SnakeBite Bar when I’m feeling lazy. I’m looking forward to your “special” .

Do you think the new recipes will work just as well with Lemon Hart or is this a balancing act to recreate the same flavor of Mai Kai drinks with the taste of a different rum? Might be silly but I've still got ~10 bottles of LH151 stashed and enjoy your recipes that call for it. I don't necessarily feel the need to rush out and get Hamilton when it becomes available here since I'm perfectly content using LH. Just hope the old recipes aren't replaced so I'm forced to make the change.

Don't worry, they'll still work with Lemon Hart (or even Goslings). Just some slight tweaks. The current Planter's recipe calls for 80-proof Demerara. But I've since learned that it actually features 151.

Hey Jon, Do you make this one at home? If so share the proportions my bruddah!
Here’s what I got so far-sounds like a good one.
Frankie's Three Rum Scum combines Hana Bay 151 proof rum, Sailor Jerry spiced rum and Cruzan coconut rum with Coco Lopez, falernum, orange juice and pineapple juice.
Mahalo, David
