So, my rum mix tonight is 1oz Appleton Estate Reserve, 1/2oz Coruba, 1/2oz Pyrat XO.



I'd never thought of inviting the Pyrat into my Mai Tai, but I'm giving the mix above a try this evening.

Thanks!

kevin



This combo is indeed pretty darn good. I don't know that I prefer it to a "1oz Appleton Estate, 1oz St. James Hors D'age" mix, but the Pyrat does give it an interesting "something different".

Great suggestion.

kevin




Thanks! Glad it worked out for you.
I have to play with my Mai-Tais to coax interesting stuff out of them as I'm a little on the cheap side and can't play too much with the $60+ rums. I've got the Appleton 12 Year, and do like that (the "Smuggler's Cove version"), but I am really more of a fan of the Vic's version. I found that just a touch of the Pyrat got me closer to that version than anything else so far.
I do get closer and closer to grabbing a nice Martinique at the liquor store, though.
One of these days, I'm gonna get that sucker.

Followed up with a couple of Mai Tais. I used a dash of Smith & Cross in addition to the Appleton Extra. It made an excellent Mai Tai!

It's all snakebites, all the time tonight. Samoan Fog Cutter with diner, then 2 Cobra's Fangs (Don's mid-century version), then a Sidewinder's Fang. Sure, the Sidewinder is pretty mellow, but makes a good 4th drink, especially with homemade passion fruit syrup.

The seems to be as many Cobra's Fang recipes as Zombie recipes. I like the Grog Log edition, but the one I had recently at Trader Vic's really put the Pernod flavor at the forefront and the Grog Log edition was a bit more subtle. I might up the Pernod and drop the lime juice a bit next time.

I find that I have to cut the lime in many of the Bum's recipes.
I mean, I love lime... but many of those drinks are just overkill will the citrus.
I likes to tastes mah rums.

A Mai Tai with this rum;

I've never heard of it, or seen it before. My friend bought me a bottle for my birthday and I have to say it's not as bad as it's label looks. For those wondering, Kelpies are a very intelligent breed of dog here in Australia commonly used on farms. As to what they have to do with rum, your guess is as good as mine.

Conducting a scientific experiment, comparing the 1941 Q.B. Cooler recipe from "Grog Log" and the 1937 recipe from "Sippin' Safari" and "Remixed" (sorry, no photos).

The winner? 1937 by a comfortable margin. It's amazing how much it tastes like a Mai Tai with almost completely different ingredients.

Singapore Sling.
The first recipe in the "chapter".
Again, a little too much lime in the Bum's recipe for me.
Gonna cut it in half on the next one... that's gonna be made in like 2 minutes from now.

Rum Sidecar from the Vic's book.
Delicious.
Although, I did cheat and used V/X instead of "light Puerto Rican".
