What do you find spicy? I don't think I missed anything though as the last drink of the night I suppose it was possible.

3/4 ounce fresh lime juice
1 ounce orange juice
3/4 ounce falernum
1/2 ounce fassionola
1 ounce gold Jamaican rum
1 ounce dark Jamaican rum
1/4 ounce grenadine
2 dashes Angostura bitters
1/4 teaspoon Pernod




What falernum did you use? I make it with my homemade version of Falernum #8. That combined with bitters and a 1/4 teaspoon of Pernod (way more than I put in any other drink) gives it more of a spicy kick than a sweetness to me.

I agree with Ad about trying the SOS. That's definitely more on the sweet side and one I need to revisit soon. While it's Mario's take on the Three Dots and Dash, it's not like any I've ever tried. A great drink in it's own right though, and it goes quick. Make it a double!

I bought Fee Brother's specifically for my tiki night given I wanted to be as accurate as possible to the Mai-Kai tributes. I won't be buying it again it after it's gone (if I don't throw it out before). I think it's the fassionola that makes the drink so sweet, or from what I recall. I might make it again tonight. I'll look into the other drinks shortly, though it'll be a solo quest as our tiki nights are annual and with lots of people.

I'm a Fee Brothers convert after initially being suprised by it in my first tries - it's just got a great thick flavour unlike Taylor's I was using before. I wouldn't throw it out, just keep trying it out & see if you like it - some drinks, no way, other drinks, it's got to be.

But with the Mai Kai recipes using rich sweetners I think you've got to tweak them to balance them to your personal taste - but my experience of the drinks when I went to the Mai Kai was that HH is making amazingly accurate tribute recipes.

Here's a few of my tips:

- Work out your preferred honey mix ratio - I make mine 3:2 instead of 2:1 or 1:1 for all my drinks now.
- Cut back falernum & fassionola slightly - 3/4 oz could become 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz could become 1/8 oz to suit your tastes.
- Add a couple of dashes of bitters (i do in the SOS)
- Try adding a few extra drops of Pernod if the recipe calls for it.

I tried the
Zulu tribute recipe from Atomic Grog last night, it's a prime example of Mai Kai flavours & one I'll tweak on a second try.

Cheers all!

Drinking another Mai Kai tribute Cobra's Kiss with .75 fassionola and no grenadine. Much better though probably not my fav as it's just a lot of strawberry flavor.
