Jet Pilot (Sippin' Safari pg 130)
Nice display of the rums, aggregated into a funky rum-forward concoction...

Bali Bali
Wow, nice! Very nice! Recipe here from TC but can't remember who posted it... Easy to drink, very pleasant.

These are two strong drinks.

"Sobriety be gone!"

Can't believe I can still type on my phone... Too relaxed to post pics...

Ace, Is yours like dis one?
Bali Bali from the Bali Ha’i New Orleans

Makes 1 drink

1 ounce fresh lime juice

1 ounce fresh orange juice

1 ounce pineapple juice

1/2 ounce simple syrup

1 ounce light rum

1 ounce gin (94-proof preferred)

1 ounce brandy

Pat dem white grapefruit are great in a Rum Barrel OFFICIAL MAI-KAI RECIPE
 The Mai-Kai Barrel O’ Rum
(From Beachbum Berry’s Taboo Table)

Barrel O' Rum by The Atomic Grog, June 2011.(Photo by Hurricane Hayward)

* 2 ounces white Puerto Rican
 or Virgin Islands rum

* 2 ounces dark Jamaican rum

* 2 ounces fresh lime juice

* 2 ounces orange juice

* 2 ounces white grapefruit juice
* 2 ounces passion fruit syrup

* 1 teaspoon honey mix
 (equal parts honey, water
* Splash of club soda

* 6 dashes Angostura bitters
Shake with plenty of ice cubes in a cocktail shaker. Pour into a ceramic rum barrel or large snifter.
Lots of ingredients but easy to make. I usually double the recipe- it’s enough to fill 4 dbl old fashioned glasses crammed with crushed ice.
I also use Meyers Platnium and dark rums.
Cheers
Btw,where in LA did you find the grapefruit?

At the Ralph's in Westwood. They also had "ugli fruit" which seems to be in that family but I didn't want to risk it. The Whole Foods here now occasionally stocks a few different types also, at their usual criminal markup. I've seen oroblanco, mellogold, and cocktail grapefruits there.

Popped into Lei Low in Houston tonight for a couple drinks.

First up was a Navy Grog with irregular presentation that was super delicious.


Followed by a Tropical Itch which contains their homemade fassionola which is unlike variations discussed here as its made with passion fruit and guava rather than grenadine and raspberry. (I forgot to take the back scratcher home)


The spousal unit had some sort of hot banana rum drink that's new to their menu and was better than any hot buttered rum I've ever had followed by a Mexican Flying Circus which is a tequila drink that may be my favorite thing on their menu.

David our always gracious bartender let us sample several syrups and rums including the Clement coconut which I've never seen on a liquor store shelf, gave us a "night cap" of Plantation Pineapple cuz he knows how much I love it, and sent us home with a t-shirt and some of their house made orgeat and grenadine. I love this place.

David, the decor is very tastefully done. The place isn't that big, it has kind of a neighborhood vibe to it but there's enough going on decor wise that it feels like a getaway. They have some Witco pieces including a Viking ship, hanging lamp and fountain, there's some carved tikis by Amate and Aloha Texas Tiki, a thatched A frame behind the bar that guards the regular customers tiki mugs they've brought from their collection that they are served in when they come, the walls are covered in matting and one whole side has images paying homage to tiki temples of the past. There's a couple peacock chairs and rattan sofas. It's not too kitschy or over the top. Menu has a mix of classics, reinterpretations and originals. I really wish there was a place like this in Austin. It's 2 and half hours from my house but I've been there more times in the last year than I've been to all other bars in Austin combined.

I'm sure there are pictures if you search Lei Low here. I'm pretty sure I posted some a while back.
