Mikehooker what is your Mai Tai recipe? Always excited trying different balances of the same drink.



Typically...

3/4 oz lime
1/2 oz orgeat
1/2 oz curacao
1 oz Jamaican
1 oz Martinique or Demerara

No sugar

Appleton 12 is pretty much my standard Jamaican. When I use Clement VSOP or Damoiseau VSOP I stick with either Senior Curacao or Pierre Ferrand. If I'm going with El Dorado 12 I sometimes use the Creole Shrub as my curacao. But I find it too intense to mix the Shrub with an agricole rum. I'm real happy with quality and flavor of the BG Reynolds orgeat and find that using 1/2 oz of it deems the added sugar/rich sugar syrup unnecessary.

I love experimenting with different rum combos but those are among the favorite. And these are the proportions I start with when experimenting with other combos.

Looks like I got you hooked on those! It's the Ramos Fizz that first got me into gin. I need to revisit the Bird of Paradise. Have you tried the Cream gin fizz in the tiki app? Simpler than the other two but still hits some of the same notes and texture.

Tonight I went out to my favorite bar in town, Small Victory, with a couple friends. Wish I'd taken more pics of the drinks.

This one I'm calling Mike's Special. Bartender Kelly whipped it up for me last time I went there after asking for something using Diplomatico Reserva and it was delicious. So I asked for it again. Grenadine, allspice, absinthe, falernum, bitters and more. Real tasty.


And here's a Voodoo Grog.

Last night - don't do what I did...

TWO classic 1934 Zombies back-to-back. They tasted so good that I drank WAY too fast and had both within 40 minutes or so. Needless to say, I had to lay down for an hour or so, then bade my guests goodnight after the movie we were watching and they left to go home. Went to bed immediately thereafter, and I made it ok until 5:30am and then had to drive the big porcelain bus. Felt great after that!!!

I'm surprisingly only a tiny bit under the weather this morning. Maybe the quality ingredients get the credit for that?

Sometimes I need a reminder to control my enthusiasm. This was that reminder.

Friday's Hulaween highlights ...


First up, "Donn" orders a Don's Special Daiquiri (Special Reserve Daiquiri).


Then, it's time for Donn's Pearl Diver (aka Deep Sea Diver).


We're just warming up, so how about a round of 151 Swizzles?


Time to go off-menu, with the brand new Chief Zabu cocktail. Very strong and rum-forward, equal to if not more potent than the Jet Pilot.

I was a costume contest judge, so I had to take it easy and wind down with a Colonial Grog (Samoan Grog) while we debated the merits of Beetlejuice vs. E.T. But at least there was a worthy winner: A Mai Tai and a Bottle of Rum ...


Full recap of the shenanigan here:

Happy Halloween!


Tonight I had a '34 Zombie with some fassionola added to make it extra bloody.


And my week in review...

Grasshopper


Cream gin fizz


Rum barrel


And some nameless concoction I'm working on.


Tomorrow we leave for San Fran so I'm sure lots of drink pics to come!

My version of the Pi-Yi. From Phoebe Beach's book with some modifications for taste and ingredients.

Also featuring my "new" Hoshizaki Nugget Ice Machine just installed in the bar. A must have for any cocktail enthusiast.
