After dinner this evening my wife and I felt the need for a good tropical drink. A Rum Babalu was in order.
I inadvertently grabbed a bottle of Bundeberg Passion Fruit (sparkling) beverage instead of the ginger beer called for in the recipe. I thought it was tasty though a bit sweet but my wife loved it. My wife sips slower then me so I wrapped it up wid a Longboard, my fav beer.
Cheers

a Ballast Point Sculpin IPA here for me. very nice.

havent seen any of the Habanero Sculpins out here, i wonder if they get shipped East at all.

the shelves are overflowing though with the Grapefruit Sculpins. Tried one of those, not a fan; the grapefruit is too heavy, the resulting product is not refreshing and the IPA qualities are overwhelmed.

Behind on postings - last Thursday at the Tiki Ti I had myself a Pearl Diver, Tiki Ti Punch, Space Pilot, and ...I forgot my last drink. I happened to meet LokiTiki there by chance.

Trying my first Shark's Tooth. Used Mount Gay Eclipse and Appleton VX. Was planning to try this drink with an Appleton 12 float but I haven't replenished my stock of that yet and wanted to give it a shot already. The bum calls for 3 oz of ice in a blender so I assume it's supposed to be a slushy type of drink. The big blender was dirty so I used the top down mixer instead which certainly didn't bring the drink to the intended consistency. Still, when I took a sip out of the mixing cup it was tasty. Poured it in a glass and topped with the Appleton float. Wasn't bad. Maybe the A12 will kick it into overdrive. Overall just too much ice for my liking, especially following the recommended sipping technique, rather than using a straw. But I suppose if I used a proper blender that issue would be resolved. Anyone else ever do this one at home? What's your take?

Hi mikehooker, I have this one in my favorites list in Tiki+, but haven't tried it yet. Thanks for your observations. I want to try one now to see what happens. Looks like you included the optional maraschino cherry jar juice. Cool photo. I love the glass, LP cover and Hi-fi in the background! Nice to see someone enjoying vinyl with their cocktails. Cheers!

Mike, Your pix are always awesome but did I ever mention that your barware/drink receptacles make me envious.

Hey, thanks guys. Owning a vintage shop and priding myself on always having quality drink ware in the store, I spend quite a bit of time scouring antique malls and other places for the goods and then of course am troubled with the decision of what I get to keep and what I have to sell. I think The Below Decks wins the prize for best photos in this thread though.

Atomic Grog's Zombie.



I need to make my own passion fruit syrup. Monin seems to overpower every drink I put it in. Maybe halving it will do the trick.

I don't have a picture of it but. . .

Just got a copy of Frankie's Liquid Vacation.

Made their version of a Mai Tai using Hamilton 86 for the Demerera and it was in my opinion pretty damn good.

It was much closer to the taste of what we get at TV here in ATL than a 1944 recipe using either Denizon Merchant's or a Clement/Appleton 12 blend.

Gonna have to try some more from the book.

Demerara 80 Swizzle

Inspired by Beachbum Berry’s T.O.T.C. Swizzle, as served at the Tiki Tower Takeover during The Hukilau.

mikehooker, FYI, when I make the Shark's Tooth I mix it like I would The Mai-Kai's Shark Bite ...
