The one that we always get the warning about is the Queen's Park Swizzle. Not even sure if it's on the menu anymore. I think the recipe is:

1/2 oz. lime juice
5 oz. Bacardi 151

Rough stuff. The only person I know who can drink more than one is Floratina, but that's because she's a rotten drunk.







How does that stuff not taste awful?

Kinda reminds me of cough medicine. If you can finish it you'll be OK.

The Trader Vic's Revised Bartender's Guide has a recipe for the tiki puka-puka. Unfortunately, it lists TV's Navy Grog Mix as an ingredient. Anyone know if the earlier 1940's edition of the Bartender's Guide has a more complete recipe?

It's in the using of proper mixing techniques. All the better if you use a bois lele tree (also called quaraibea_turbinata) swizzle stick.

I know a few who swear by this drink.

I like the way it is presented, The Puka Puka even has its own appreciation page on FaceBook
