Okay, a successful evening!

This time I had Smith & Cross with Barbancourt 8, which was a little dull... but had that patented kick that I enjoy. The Smith & Cross with Flor de Cana 7 was much better, really nice combo although, as with the last one, its strength overpowered much of the other flavors.

Then I tried something weird.

Lemon Hart Original with Bacardi 8 year. Seriously, what the hell did I just do to my drink? It was really really good... but tasted nothing like any of the other Mai Tais I've made. God knows what happened with that particular combo, but it was very delicious to my tastes and different enough from a regular Mai Tai to feel like another drink entirely.

Has anyone else tried it? I was so surprised how much difference the blend of rums would make.

I'll definitely give that blend a shot. I've been using Bacardi 8 a lot lately and have enjoyed every drink I've made with it.

Tonight I had a friend over and we had Puka Punches with Cana Brava, Bacardi 8, Coruba and Lemon Hart float. With homemade falernum and passion fruit syrup it was absolutely delicious. Followed those up with a Stiggins Daiquiri. If these were the only two drinks I was allowed to drink the rest of my life in no way would that be disappointing.

Last night there was a neighborhood gathering so I brought a Big pitcher of Big Bamboo over and it was a Big hit! I'm really loving this drink. I did the recipe times twelve and didn't want to squeeze that much grapefruit so ended up using bottled Ocean Spray white for half of the called for amount which made it pretty bitter. I added some extra passion fruit and a little honey mix and sugar syrup to cut the bitterness and it was excellent. Non-tikiphiles were asking for the recipe which is always a good sign.

This thread always gives me an inferiority complex!

For tonight: Fiiiiiinnallyy:




Sadly, I'm disappointed. There's a hint of what I remember, but an unpleasant other/after taste.
It didn't taste as good as remembered last summer at the one place we found it on Kauai, either.
Either it's changed for the worse, or I've become much more spoiled since it was regularly available.

It was Bruddah



Bama- I know what you are sayin
At first I thought it was a little different

But, we still like it

Had a couple friends over. We started with a Fogg Cutter bowl (just doubled the Bali Hai at the Beach recipe and made it a communal drink), then whipped up some Puka Punches followed by Cobra's Kisses. All extremely tasty and super strong drinks. Everyone was satisfied and feeling great. Mission accomplished. Let's do it again tomorrow.

The Dos Maderas Rum caught my eye at the Tustin Grill ( use to be “Quinn’s”). Barkeep gave me a sip. Very good if you like a sweeter rum.
Cheers

Brady's Yacht Club (Santa Cruz, CA) Oatmeal Cookies! (We grew up going to Santa Cruz every year in the Summer. My Mom & Dad let us walk to the Boardwalk (which you would never do today) while they ended up at Brady's (a local dive bar with an ironic name). I didn't even see the inside of it until I was in my late 20's. Now I go with my Dad and the rest of the family. It became the family tradition over 20 years ago to order "Oatmeal Cookies" at Brady's which were a "special" advertised at the bar way back then. It's not very good, but it's now a tradition that must continue!)

Which Dos Maderas was it? 5+3, or 5+5 (aka PX)? 5+3 has a lighter label, 5+5 has a dark label. I love the 5+5!

Took a trip to Colorado over the weekend. I got a chance to go to Adrift in Denver for the first time. I was lucky enough to meet Gabbahey & Slacks Ferret from TC. Very nice guys, I am hapy to have met them.

This is a Jungle Bird.



Here is a Cobra's Fang.



I had a couple bloody's in Boulder.




Got a Manhattan at the Bitter Bar in Boulder.



I forget the name of this drink, but it was a whiskey and ginger drink from The Kitchen in Denver.



Got a Central Slope Sour at Acorn. Also had a Pork Belly BLT with an egg added, the BEST meal I had in Colorado!!!



Went to a really cool speakeasy for the Golden Moon Distillery in Golden Colorado. They are only a tasting room, so they only serve their own liquors, but they have such a wide range of products that it really works well. No rum ( ) but they make their own Gin & Whiskey & rye as well as more obscure boozes like Absinthe, Creme de Violette and Curacao. If you are in the area, I strongly recommend it. Only a short drive from Denver and Boulder. Say hi to Erin for me.

This is a Voodoo Lady.



Cheers!

Oh yeah, our hotel bar was pretty nice too!

Love the Stranahans!
