Papa Dobles here. Hemingway Daiquiris. whatever you wanna call em. lots of rum, good bit of grapefruit, some lime, some maraschine liqueur. i made one with a mix of haitian and martinician rums and added angostura bitters. the other had no bitters and was purely dominican rum. both skrong, 3 oz rum each.

and there's chips!

Porp, I followed the 1970 New Orleans Bali Hai recipe from the Total Tiki app which calls for dark Jamaican, light Puerto Rican, brandy and gin. Strong and flavorful. I'll be putting this into regular rotation.

Steve Crane Jet Pilot.



Revisiting this one with different rums and homemade falernum cuz I didn't care for it the first time I tried it. Still not loving it. Maybe a couple less drops of Pernod or adding a little honey mix or sugar syrup will take the harsh edge off.

What about the drink don't you like? I can't recall if Steve Crane is "the" one who has the recipe in Sippin' Safari but that drink is fantastic.

Yeah, it's the one in Sippin Safari everyone seems to love but I just don't find it to have a good balance. I love all the ingredients but the proportions just don't work for me. This has nothing on what the Mai Kai serves up or the Atomic Grog's tribute which actually has more booze and ingredients that come together perfectly. Would be curious to know the exact ingredients you use and if you make any adjustments cuz as the recipe reads, it's not worth wasting my LH151 on again.

So I make mine without making adjustments from Sippin' Safari. What I tend to use are as such:

Jet Pilot (Steve Crane, pg 130 Sippin' Safari)
.5 oz fresh lime juice
.5 oz store brand white grapefruit juice (I don't juice fresh oranges or grapefruit)
.5 oz homemade cinnamon syrup (preferably B.G. Reynolds', and the last couple years it's been Monin)
.5 oz John D Taylor Velvet Falernum (preferably B.G. Reynolds')
1 oz Coruba Dark
.75 oz Bacardi 8
.75 oz Lemon Hart 151
Dash Angostura
6 drops Pernod
8 oz crushed ice

Prepared in a top-down blender w/more crushed ice if needed. That's it! I will say that Hayward's Mai Kai Jet Pilot tributes are high on my list to try because I love this drink so much, but this is the drink that I know and the way it was introduced to me by Kelly at Trader Sam's.

I liked the Steve Crane Jet Pilot very much until I tried the Mai Kai Jet Pilot - the Mai Kai's is just much more sophisticated & the Steve Crane feels 'clunky' in comparison.

I firmed up on the order for my tiki room supplies today so I had a few & started watching Walking Dead season 5:

First up Improved Vermouth Cocktail, followed by
Negroni Sbagliato, Ti Punch, Rittenhouse 100 neat...

If any TCers have rhum agricole blanc & rye whiskey on hand try it (one first then the other) - it's a weird combo!

a pint of Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA. it has a complex hoppiness, just enough bitterness, and a creamy finish. an excellent beer. but the main reason this is my go-to beer, is because the 7-11 down the street sells cold 16-ounce cans of it for just $2 each...

Did mine pretty much exact except with Kohala Bay instead of Coruba to give it an extra kick. Just didn't work for me.

Forgot about this one. I've only made it once before and thought it was great. I need to restock fassionola and give it another go.
