K.T.

Check the post about "Grenadine." I'm going down to LA in a week and could easily do some shopping. I'm also making another pilgramage to Tiki Ti, and I can't wait.

Grog Log P45 Kapu-Kai
Great drink, but even better with a salted rim
(and don't even bother with the 'rimming' jokes, it's a fantastic drink)


Bottoms up!

When I saw the title of this forum, I clicked on it--anxiously anticipating some tales of drunken debauchery...Some lost weekend tales of woe and/or madness...I guess the title would be more like "How far down in the gutter have you gone?" or "How long have you spent worshiping the porcelain (Tiki) idol?"

Hey KT,

Yeah, I'll check that place out too when I'm down there.
Miratti's is at 4441 Hollister Ave., South side of the street, one block West of Modoc.
On a slightly different note... I found a bottle of Parfait Amour for about $15 the other day at a liquor store down on Montecito St., just down from Castillo. It was a dusty, dirty bottle with the label taped back on because the glue had given out. I assume because of it's condition it is rather old.
Still no luck finding Falernum in Santa Barbara. Maybe there are some liquor stores in Montecito that have some older stock?

-T.J.

P.S. Taking a few days off from mixing. I'm trying to let my liver heal a little after "Gringo de Mayo." I only had one drink.... that I remember... and it was served in a bucket with a rubber shark in it.

So, cut the lime in half or less, and don't go by the little icon guy as far as drink strength, look at the recipe. For instance, look at the Boo Loo's icon. Not a strong drink. Look at the recipe, 4.5 ounces of liquor! Then Gone the Beachcomber is supposed to be very strong, but the recipe calls for 1.5 ounces of alcohol.


I agree that some of the Grog Log drinks are too sour (like for example "Pieces of Eight") but other drinks have IMO a very nice balance, so I don't think it's a good idea to cut the lime content in half or less as a general rule.

As for the icon guy showing how strong the drink is, I think it's supposed to show how much of the entire drink that's liquor and not the actual amount liquor. For example, a small cocktail often tastes much stronger than a bigger drink although the latter might contain more liquor.

Update:

Tahitian
Noa Noa

Two more down, only..... oh geez!... that's a lot more to go.

However, it was a very pleasant evening sitting on my porch, sipping a beverage, tiki torches lit, reading Trader Vic's Bartender's guide.

Update:
Q.B. Cooler
Coronado Luau Special
Trader Vic Grog
Polynesian Paralysis
Royal Daiquiri
Skipper Kent Planter's Punch
Surf Room Mai Tai
Tonga Planter's

I think that's 46 so far (I'm marking each page as I go). At the moment I'm sipping a Polynesian Paralysis... LOVE IT!! I wish I could buy Okolehao in gallon sized jugs. That stuff tastes great.

So... am I just a drunk, or is anyone else out there drinking? How far in the books have you gone?

-T.J.

TJ where did you get the Okolehao? I could use some of that!

Cheers,

KT

KT,

I got the Okolehao online from
http://www.internetwines.com , but they appear to be out of stock right now. I'm going to look around a little more for some, ask some friends with family in Hawaii, talk to some local liquor store owners.... I will get some more even if I have to swim to Hawaii myself!

On a different note, the name of the liquor store at 4441 Hollister Ave. is Talevi's not Miratti's (although it is listed in the phone book as both). I went by there yesterday and they didn't have Trader Vic's Grenadine like I thought they had. NO WHERE in Santa Barbara has anything but Roses. I'm glad I'm going to L.A. in two days.

-T.J.

I found this while searching:

"Rev. Ruling 61-70

Okolehao

Section 201.467 of the Distilled Spirits Plants Regulations provides in part that bottles containing spirits bottled on bottling premises for export shall have securely affixed thereto a label showing, among other things, the kind of spirits contained therein. This requirement means a designation as to kind in conformity with the standards of identity prescribed for domestic products under the Federal Alcohol Administration Act (27 U.S.C. 205(e)). However, the Distilled Spirits Labeling and Advertising Regulations issued under the Federal Alcohol Administration Act do not set forth a standard of identity for okolehao and do not contain specific provisions requiring this product to be bottled at not less than 80 degrees proof. Therefore, a product bottled at 76 degrees of proof may be labeled as okolehao for exportation to foreign markets.

26 U.S.C. 5201; 27 CFR 201.467 "

Google Image search for "Rimmer"



Is there a drink called a Red Dwarf? There should be, something like a lager with a shot of Chicken Vindaloo in it...

I just got a bottle of Falernum, Maraschino liqueur, a mini Licor 43, and a mini Campari so my mixing capabilities have grown substantially. My latest drinks are....
Pieces of Eight
Palace Court
Yellow Boxer
Tonga Zombie
Aku Aku Lapu
Demerara Dry Float
Golden Wave
Beachbum's Own
Blackbeard's Ghost

That's 55 so far, and loving every bit of it!

-T.J.

I thought the title of this thread was referrig to how crazy have you gone while drunk!!!

Well, since it is about the grog log, I guess I can't add my 2 cents then - I dont have the book. But crazy stories...
