Hurricane Hayward, I really enjoyed the Tutu rum Punch, I like looking for recipes with grapefruit juice in them since I have a white grapefruit tree in the back yard. This was a real smooth and tasty drink.

Mahalo! That's one of those lesser known Trader Vic drinks that you don't hear much about. He didn't use grapefruit much.

FYI, if you're looking for drinks with grapefruit, on The Mai-Kai menu check out the Zombie, Special Planters Punch, Yeoman's Grog, Mutiny, The Hukilau, Black Magic, Bora Bora, Mara-Amu and Floridita Daiquiri. I also like the retired Big Bamboo.

The Week in Tiki (April 20-26, 2015): Rum fest invades Miami, South Florida’s underwater Easter Island, Shag goes to ‘The Twilight Zone’

http://www.slammie.com/atomicgrog/blog/2015/04/25/the-week-in-tiki-april-20-26-2015-rum-fest-invades-miami-an-underwater-easter-island-shag-tackles-twilight-zone/



As expected, the Miami Rum Festival dominated the news this week, but an unlikely story about giant Easter Island-style moai being sunk off the coast of South Florida certainly piqued our interest. Also worth noting is the return of the Chicago Area Tiki Tour, plus the upcoming release of a limited-edition print by Shag that pays tribute to The Twilight Zone.



Thousands of enthusiasts, experts and VIPs congregated in Miami last week for the seventh annual Miami Rum Renaissance Festival. The Doubletree by Hilton Miami Airport Convention Center was ground zero for the Friday, Saturday and Sunday grand tastings, with hundreds of rums exhibited, tasted and judged.


It’s a long way from the remote island in the South Pacific, but South Florida’s sleepy Deerfield Beach will soon be the home of an under-sea attraction that pays homage to Easter Island’s famous moai. The Rapa Nui Reef, scheduled to be sunk on June 7, will include 15 giant statues of cast concrete standing up to 22 feet from the ocean floor in 75 feet of water, according to a story in Fort Lauderdale’s Sun-Sentinel.

Weekly features spotlight artist Dawn Frasier, the Bahama Bob’s Rumstyles blog, the exotica and hapa haole sounds of Kinky Waikiki, and Miami Beach cocktail bar The Broken Shaker.


While this Miami Beach craft cocktail hotspot is not “Tiki” in the classic sense, it features all the hallmarks of a great tropical bar with drinks elevated to world-class standards (it was a James Beard Award semi-finalist in 2013). The bar staff is also very adept at tropical mixology, both classic and avant-garde.

To enhance your reading enjoyment, try some Pusser’s British Navy rum in the classic Painkiller.

Hello!

I'm new to this site. I'm a huge fan of tiki bars and incorporating ideas into them.

Anyway I've been hearing a lot about this new tiki bar that is opening up in Las Vegas.

Apparently its going to be like the Enchanted Tiki Room at Disneyland?!

Has anyone else heard about it?

Hurricane Hayward, I just made the Yeoman's Grog and it was very tasty, thanks for a fine recommendation. I used a combination of RL Seale, Smith & Cross and El Dorado 5, and Lemon Hart 80.

Tikitraveler: I have heard nothing about a new bar in Vegas. Has anyone else?

hiltiki: Glad you enjoyed the Yeoman's Grog recipe. That's an interesting rum combo. I might have to try it.

Note: Starting in June 2015, updates are being published twice a month, around the first and third week. But don’t worry: We won’t miss any of the latest news.



The Week in Tiki (June 1-14, 2015): The Hukilau 2015 latest news and updates

http://www.slammie.com/atomicgrog/blog/2015/06/09/the-week-in-tiki-june-1-14-2015-the-hukilau-2015-latest-news-and-updates/
The Hukilau rolls into Fort Lauderdale for events Wednesday through Sunday, and we’ll be posting all the important updates.

Also, we have news on the sinking of the Rapa Nui Reef in Deerfield Beach ...

It was a grand build-up to a disappointing conclusion. Following months of anticipation and a gala weekend preview, 15 Eastern Island moai up to 22 feet tall were ready to take their place as a unique habitat on the ocean floor. But the sinking of the Rapa Nui Reef in Deefield Beach on Sunday, June 7, went horribly wrong when the statues slid off their barge and were crushed as the costly project went topsy-turvy.

Quick hits include a new seminar at Trader Vic’s in Atlanta, new bands at Tiki Oasis, plus Tiki Kon merchandise. Regular features spotlight the late Tiki carver Barney West, The Molokai lounge at The Mai-Kai, surf guitarist Skinny Jimmy Stingray, and Beachbum Berry’s new website ...


The rum of the week, Rhum Barbancourt 3 Star, is featured in Beachbum Berry’s Tahitian ...


See you at The Hukilau!
