I finally got some Kohala Bay. What would you say is the best cocktail to use it?

Cheers!

Had a Koloa Bay premixed Mai Tai on the plane to Hawaii (and maybe one on the way back too) Thought is was pretty good for a Hawaiian style Mai Tai.

That's a different animal, Maddog. Koloa is a Hawaiian rum from Kauai. Kohala Bay is an obscure dark Jamaican rum.

I thought about buying some of the Koloa Mai Tai premix, just to give it a try. United serves the Trader Vic's RTD Mai Tai on their fights to Hawaii. If you added some dark rum to it, it wouldn't be half bad.

Well, I guess the most well known connection to Koloha Rum is the Black Magic from the Mai Kai?

I believe there is a thread here on TC about making that one.

I would use at as the Jamaican rum component in any good Tiki drink recipe and see how it goes. I was lucky enough to get a handle of that stuff in Florida a couple of years ago. I've been timid about using it up. I should play with that too.

Life is short.

I tell myself that, but it can be hard to fight against the hoarder mentality.

I notice the Black Magic has 10 ingredients in it.

I needed a drink just reading over the list...

Hurricane Hayward is the man. He busts his ass for Tiki.

Mahalo professor! But I think you need to blame Donn Beach for all those fancy complex drinks :>)

Hi folks. I am going to be in Orlando in December. Is there are stores nearby that sell the Kohaloa Bay or Coruba rums? Thanks!

TikiRog, I have a couple thoughts:
1) Show up and do a tour of liquor stores. (Time consuming.)
2) Do a web search for big liquor stores in the area and call them. Even if they don't carry it in their stores, they may be willing to special-order for you, then hold it so you can pick it up when you're in town.

Lugging bottles of booze home with you (if you're not driving) can be a hassle, so remember you can also mail-order Kohala Bay and not worry about it on your trip down.

Happy hunting!

If you're in downtown Orlando, stop in at the Aku Aku. Good drink menu, freshly made syrups, orgeat and juices. Relaxed atmosphere.

I didn't see any Kohala Bay rum in town unfortunately. But i did discover that they are selling it at a liquor store in Fort Lauderdale just a few blocks from the Mai Kai.

TikiRog: I live right outside of Orlando and the only place I found KB is at a liquor store Ft. Pierce, Florida named Roy's liquor. Google map it, it's about 2 hours southeast of Orlando on the coast. Call, but they had a few 1.75 on the shelves time I was there.

Roy's is great! Definitely call ahead - lots of tiki folks have put them on their "must visit" list when attending tiki events in Ft. Lauderdale, and that leaves the more popular tiki drink items out of stock. This happened to me in June this year - I showed up after someone from Tiki Central cleaned out all the good stuff I had on my shopping list.

Sorry about that. The Bum needed Kohala bay for his symposium and I answered the call.

There were a couple of 1.75L bottles on the shelf when I was there about 3 weeks ago.
