Tonight was the first time I mixed a Rum Barrel (pg. 71) and I must say I was very pleased. I mixed it to the letter using Myer's Rum for the dark Jamaican Rum, and Trader Vic's Rock Candy Syrup for the sugar syrup. What a great tasting drink! Also a great excuse to use the Barrel mug I bought at the Mai Kai this past November. In fact I think I'll put the Rum Barrel at Number 1 for now in the top ten of Tiki drinks I have mixed at home. There may be another one that comes along, like on the hit singles charts, to knock it out of the no. 1 spot, but for now it's there.The Alize Red Passion liquer is a nice touch in the ingredients, and oh yeah the buzz factor is pretty high since your mixing 3/4 oz of 151 in addition to the Myers'. I drank two and got a nice zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

The only very minor dissapointment was when I mixed it (3/4 oz. of each ingredient as the recipe calls for) it only filled my Mai Kai barrel mug half way, and even with a little additiional ice it was still below the rim. I wanted it Mai Kai full, but it was still tons-o-fun. Next time I'll just mix an ounce of each ingredient. That should probably do it.

Aloha!

Try the Mai Kai recipe and see how it compares. Or is it the same? I am not looking at the book.

Barrel of Rum


2 oz Bacardi Silver rum
2 oz Appleton rum
2 oz lime juice
2 oz orange juice
2 oz grapefruit juice
2 oz Trader Vic's passion mix
1 teaspoon honey
splash soda
2 - 6 dashes Angostura bitters

Thanks for posting, Swanky. I like 'em both, but could only have the Mai Kai version on site.

DonHo, 1 oz. each will get the barrel 3/4 full. That's what I do, too.

Swanky-

The Mai Kai recipe is quite different from the GL recipe, but thanks for posting. I'll have to try that. Now if anybody knows the Mai Kai recipes for their Mai Tais or Zombies, that would be mucho cool-o. Both are amazing drinks, and I haven't really tasted anything that comes clost to their versions anywhere else particularly the Zombie, which I can 'taste' in my mind's eye (or mouth) right now.

JTD-3/4s full is close enough for me. I wonder if say what 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 oz. would do. Probably fill the barrel and get you pretty f'in smashed I'm guessing!! Yeah...fill that barrel baby!!! (that's what she said...doh!)

Don,
I really want to know their ZOmbie recipe. BK and I talked about it a while and he thought there was Liqor 43 in it, but I seem to recall in a late night sesssion asking Kern if it was true and I think he said 'no'. But, it's all hazy now.

I have these Mai Kai drink recipes:
Derby Daiquiri
Floridita Daiquiri
Barrel of Rum
Tahiatian Paradise
Mara Amu
and, I am pretty sure the Shark's Tooth is the same as their SHark Bite.

and a few dishes.

Yes, the Mara Amu. I've had that several times, and got the mug that comes with it. Could you post that one here?

The other great thing about the Grog Log Rum Barrel is that you can make it in giant batches for parties, and it works well. I tend to lower the sugar syrup a little and substitute gold rum for some of the 151, but otherwise the recipe is the same, and it's a huge hit at parties.

However, BE WARNED, I've seen more naked and/or half-clothed maniacs after this drink is served. It really unlocks the latent exhibitionist in people. And I'm not kidding. A crazy, crazy cocktail. I've seen it time and time again.

When I plan on mixing more than one of these lovely cocktails, I mix a "batch" in a glass pitcher.
Use 6 ounces of each ingredient. Dole pineapple juice just happens to come in a 6 ounce cans. Put 1 scoop of ice in the pitcher first, then add rums, syrup and juices in that order. The ice will mellow the mix as you go, so not too much. Go for just 3 ounces of the 151 and save your brain for another day.

I have been making the GL rum barrel for the last month for everyone. One of the best drinks ever, real tasty. I have a passion fruit liquor from Colombia and it is almost all gone. I will have to try Alize for the next batch. I wonder if it is just as good, cause these came out excellent. For the second round of drinks I use 1/2 151 and 1/2 Myers. so we don't go crazy.
