Two Finkelgrogs (from the Smuggler's Cove book) at home with Mrs Larry:



Instead of the "Napa wine syrup" I used a 75:25 mixture of Bonal and simple syrup because I'm lazy (and the aromatic wine, with a touch of gentian, works quite well in this). One of my favourites.

The Caribbean from POTC. Didn't feel like making a batch of ginger syrup so I replaced the regular cola with some ginger cola I saw at the grocery store.

Was listening to Adrian's podcast discussing the new Lapu they're making with the old recipe. They seemed real proud of what they're serving. Would love to see pics of the new interior.

Well I finally put this lil old thin glass to work
I would recommend making the Don's gardenia mix in advance,
As this took forever to make.

Pearl Diver

Funny with all the ingredients the lime was rather overpowering,
so I made a second one with less lime,
more bitters, more cinnamon syrup and allspice,
much better in my opinion.

I'm just going to have to accept that I'll never be a cocktail guy. I like cinnamon and I like grapefruit juice so I thought a Donga Punch would really hit the spot. I mixed one to the classic 1937 recipe and it was nasty. Half the volume of the drink is rum and not enough grapefruit juice or cinnamon to taste. So I added another couple ounces of cinnamon syrup and several ounces of grapefruit juice. It was pretty good

Went to the Captain Morgan Party at the Royal Hawaiian in Laguna Beach. C M was introducing their LocoNut Rum. They had about six drinks on the menu using the new product. All were very good . I will post the menu tomorrow. The only one I did not try was the ďMonkey BusinessĒ. It had coffee liquor in it and again, imo, Coffee and rum does not appeal to me Iíll post the drink menu/descriptons tomorrow. My wife and I started the evening with Lapu Lapuís , had some ono Pupuís and then started with the LocoNut drinks. PolyPop (Adrian) joined us for a couple of rounds. here are a few pix of some of the drinks.






Edited to add menu.

Nice label on the cinnamon syrup, MadDogMike. Bummer about the Donga Punch, I'll have to make one to see if I also find it bad. Fixing it with more cinnamon syrup might have made the drink too sweet, no?

I know your pain though, I've made a number of "classic" drinks and found they just didn't agree with my palate. Fortunately it's sooooo easy to move on to other things, lol.

Fresh squeezed white grapefruit juice is essential to a good Donga punch. If you're using pink or red, or a bottled variety you're not gonna have success. Also, it's a very simple drink that really highlights the rum so the one you use will impact your results. Plus agricole rum is an acquired taste. If you don't have an affinity for that earthy, vegetal flavor, you should move on to another drink. I've experimented with a few rums in this drink and find that Damoiseau VSOP really hits the spot. What did you use?
