As far as the lemongrass, it took several sips before I could taste it.
Glad I found it

What's the recipe you use? I had an Aviation at a bar here that was quite good. They just said gin, honey, lemon. Curious if that's all there is to it and what the proportions are.

Knocked back a few from Tiki Ti last Friday. I always make sure to try new things if I'm not there on a Wednesday for $6 Ray's Mistakes.

1. Shark's Tooth - I think I've actually had this before but couldn't recall my opinion.


2. Tiki Kangaroo - One I've thought about for awhile, knowing that it was dry and with grape juice. Not opposed to either, however it was very dry and very bitter and not very good.


3. Pain Killer - I needed a complete 180 from the Kangaroo. I wanted to try their Pain Killer after Lunavideogames' instagram droolworthy picture. Definitely worth the $18.


4. Pearl Diver - went against my judgement. Not awful but far too sour for a "true" Pearl Diver.

[/quote] Here it is Mike-Cheers

2 oz gin
1/4 oz maraschino liqueur
1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
dash of creme de violette
flamed lemon peel for garnish
Preparation:
Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
Shake well.
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
Garnish with a flamed lemon peel.
Note-some use Creme De Yvette instead of the Violette. My wife and I prefer the Violette.
This is a great drink before wolfing down a juicy Ribeye. Btw, these Liqueurs seem pricey considering how little is used per drink but one bottle will probably last a lifetime.

My wonderful partner brought me a young coconut - tonight was the night to break it out for two drinks I've avoided previously:

First up a Luau Coconut:



Following some careful hacking, a Moonkist Coconut:



Why would you ever drink a Pina Colada again? These are both brilliant!

The main plus for both of them was that both were far less creamy than a Pina Colada - I used light coconut milk (as I would when cooking with it). It's not hard to think of subbing gold or dark Jamaican rum but they are fine as they are.

Cheers to mikehooker & Hurricane Hayward for posting about the Moonkist Coconut recently.

In the spirit of trying drinks that look odd on paper, here's number 3 - the Albuquerque Old Fashioned:



The mix of spice & whiskey is good!

Nice. You shoulda finished the night with a pain killer!

Oddly enough, I randomly decided to make pina coladas a month or so back. Silly me. It did absolutely nothing for me except waste my rum and give my wife's sister heartburn.

Moonkist used to be my wife's favorite, she would always order it at the Mai Kai. But after discovering the Luau Coconut, I much prefer it. Maybe it's that fresh coconut water. What rums did you use?

I used Brugal Especial & Cockspur for both. I've been subbing in Cockspur instead of gold PR or Virgin Islands recently, it fits the bill just fine.

The 'killer' for having either drinks regularly is needing the coconut milk or coconut water, I rarely have them on hand. As a note, the water from the young coconut was nicer (nuttier, less sweet) than the Carribean or Asian stuff I have had before. It was fun to eat the coconut flesh but I got bored of the flavour about 1/4 of the way through.

To get all geared up for the drinks probably cost as much as 2 $100 Mai Tais - maybe an occasional treat when I see the young coconuts available rather than a home bar staple. But seeing I have the ingredients on hand, I'll try them again at least the weekend - I may try upscaling the Bajan rum to something else.

But I may have to turn in my TC membership card, I want another Albuquerque Old Fashioned now - yowser, that's a good drink, best of the three!
