Hmmm... At $75 per bottle, the 21 would have to be twice as good as the 15 to justify the cost. Is that really the case ?

I like a good pour, but for me once you start paying more than $35 for a bottle of booze, it becomes the law of diminishing returns.

well I don't know about twice as good.
but it is pretty smooth.

I won't be buying or drinking it all the time,
but its nice for special occasions.

One of my most favourite cocktails, although not a Tiki drink, "The Avenue".

30ml Bourbon
30ml Calvados (you could use Applejack)
30ml Passion fruit syrup
dash of lemon juice
dash of orange flower water

I use Monin Passion fruit syrup and cut it back a little bit so that it's not too sweet.

It's from the Ted Haigh book Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails.

I'm trying the Spindrift Jr, who I think is the son of Spindrift or maybe he is just a little shorter version of Spindrift Sr. Either way it is good.

I had a slug of Zacapa 23 tonight at a Mexican restaurant - it's a decent dark rum that's rather too sweet. Speaking of sweet rums, would Oronoco make a good substitute for cachaca in a caiphirina?

More rum fixes anything.
Every time.

To paraphrase Homer - "Ah rum: the cause of, and solution to, all of man's problems..."

Gin & Tonic right now,tho' I forgot how much I dislike tonic water. Then I gotta flip a coin between a Mango Cooler or a Skipper Kent Planter's Punch...

Whipped up a quickie with little to no thought given...
1oz Myers's Dark
1oz Appleton Estate Reserve
3oz Ceres Passion Fruit Juice
.5 oz Cherry Heering

Actually pretty tasty.

So, there was a drink in the Vic's book that I wanted to try, but couldn't remember what it was... so I pulled it out of the brain, but I probably got it wrong.
It's like equal parts rum, cherry brandy, and Benedictine.
I used Coruba and Cherry Heering along with the Benedictine.
Strangely delicious.
I say strangely because it's a little tamarind like... a little "tree bark-y", if that makes sense.
Interesting, and good.

Sounds like a Singapore Sling with rum instead of gin.

Ciro's special happens to be one of my all time favorites. Usually I start with a ciro's and then go to a Mai tai. But I'm having a margarita now.
