I'm drinking a Milky Way (or at least it's close the Milky Way as served at the Tiki Ti). Bailys, Kahlua, amarretto, milk, and a tiny splash of 7-up. Mmmm... so good...

Just finishing off a Mai-Kai Rum Barrel and a nice smoke before having my steak!

Don the Beachcomber's Mai-Tai Swizzle from BBB's Remixed.
Oh, my!
This is a thing of beauty. Granted, I'm more of a fan of Vic's, which is sublime, but this supposed pre-cursor is a real delight.
What I'm loving about this drink is that the sweetness is minimal at most, and the rum blend really, really shines through in a delicious symphony of booze. Man, I'm loving this damn drink.



(Granted, it may be perverse to put a Don drink in a Vic glass, but this is the only double old fashioned I have.)

And now, for the after-dinner dessert (the wife made an awesome meatloaf), I'm having the Beachbum's own Ancient Mariner.
Pretty dang good. I've made some other stuff with this same vibe, but they're all sweeter than this. I like the balance of the bitter with the spice in this drink and will definitely be making this again sometime..
Delicious.
Same glass, same garnish.

Ya'll need to catch up, dammit.

I shoulda gone with another one... but... tonight I tried the Miehana. I kind of wish I hadn't, though... I mean, no offense to the Bum, but I'm just not feelin' this. I think it's the full ounce of Grand Marnier, but something's sticking in my throat... it's just a little too sharp for my taste.
I understand why it was created, and why it so "orangy", but I guess I was expecting more of a candy orange and not so much of an orange oil thing.
No big deal, though, of course... plenty of other awesome recipes in the sea!

Experimental Mai Tai - with Kraken rum for the heck of it. Sacrilege, I know, but actually not bad. Not spectacular, but not bad.

I received BB Remixed two weeks ago and have been on a quest to make new things I haven't tried before, including ingredients I've shied away from because I know they aren't really my bag (but as a completist I'm going to at least try to check some drinks off the list). One such ingredient is coconut cream.

I opened a can of Coco Lopez last night and made the Tradewinds. However, since it's a bowl, I downsized it by 1/3, so instead of 4 oz of lemon juice and 3 oz each of everything else called for, I did 1 1/3 and 1 oz. respectively. I poured the blended result into a Trader Vic's coconut bowl. It tasted good, but was too "desserty" for my tastes and even at 1/3 almost immediately filled me up. So one coconut cream drink off the list, and will use the rest of the 15 oz can to check a few other coconut cream items off the list (though spaced out every couple of weeks, or until the cream goes bad in the fridge). Much better than the drink I made last week with Kahlua, whose name I forget (once I got home I discovered the 50oz bottle of Kahlua at Bevmo was the Hazlenut flavor--ecch--so I may have to try again with regular Kahlua, though I'm not really a fan of it in general--I'm way more into the drinks calling for falernum and allspice dram).

Brent,
If you can find the Trader Vics Coffee Liqueur.
Use that instead of the Kahlua, and I think you will be surprised.
I'm not a coffee Drinker, but that stuff is quality.

Jeff, I'll give that a try--is it unlike a lot of the other Trader Vic's products that are full of artificial ingredients?

I am a coffee drinker, but from this and past attempts at coffee grogs, I tend to like to keep my coffee drinking and my booze drinking as two separate experiences (just like my booze drinking and my dessert eating).

By the way, I'm going to come down to Don's Monday happy hour one of these weeks--things have just been too hectic lately.

I'm having a Captain's Grog right now--yum, one of the best drinks I've made out of Remixed!

However, I'm not sure whether I used Grade A or B maple syrup. It's Safeway Select brand, from Canada (but doesn't say anything about grades). Looking at wikipedia (always dangerous, I know) it appears the grades have to do with darkness--this is somewhat dark, but I think closer to Grade A Amber than the really dark Grade B. Not sure if the "grade A only" requirement has to do with coloration or taste. Whatever, this tastes damn good!

I'm not 100% sure,
but the consensus is the 5 Liqueurs that TV's makes,
Hazlenut, Amareto, Macadamia nut, Coffee and 1 other(I forget).
are all really good, compared to the TV mixers and and rums.

Hope to see you at Dons on a Monday.
its such a deal, and great times.

Jeff(btd)
