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



Swanky, when you say "2 oz Trader Vic's passion mix" are you referring to TV's passion fruit syrup or something else? I'm guessing the syrup but I just want to make sure.

Reviving old threads is preferred over starting new ones, right?

Last night I was trying to make a Reverb Crash and half-way through realized I didn't have nearly enough grapefruit so I improvised. Here is what I came up with:

1 oz fresh white grapefruit juice
1 oz fresh lime juice
1 oz fresh tangerine juice
1 oz passion fruit syrup (homemade)
1 tablespoon cinnamon syrup (homemade)
1 oz Coruba
1 oz El Dorado 8
2 dashes orange bitters (Fees)

Shake with ice cubes, pour over crushed ice.

Well, it was ... good. I was feeling all proud of myself like I had actually invented something. But then I started playing with the Grogalizer and realized I had just inadvertently made a modified Rum Barrel! Or is it a modified Mai Kai Mara Amu? Or just a messed-up Big Bamboo? A Bum Barrel? A Barrel o Rum? The only differences really are the cinnamon syrup (sort of like Don's mix with the trace amount and the grapefruit), orange bitters, and using the Demerara and Dark Rum with no gold or light rum. Which is probably a tiki taboo (er, kapu?) or something.

Anyway, I was feeling all proud of myself but now I just feel like a plagiarist. Luckily I don't care and am going to make some more of these in a few hours. But what do I call it? What's it closest to?

Thanks thePorpoise, that drink looks delicious. Going on my list. It is a little different with the falernum instead of cinnamon. By the way, I never see orange bitters listed for any tiki recipes, only Angostura, grapefruit, and Peychauds. I wonder why?

I made Grog Log Rum Barrels yesterday after finally finding some Alize. A terrific drink. My wife instantly said "top 3." I guess I need to systematically go through all of the variations of it.

I use the following
OFFICIAL MAI-KAI RECIPE
The Mai-Kai Barrel O’ Rum
(From Beachbum Berry’s Taboo Table)

Barrel O' Rum by The Atomic Grog, June 2011.(Photo by Hurricane Hayward)
* 2 ounces white Puerto Rican 
or Virgin Islands rum
* 2 ounces dark Jamaican rum
* 2 ounces fresh lime juice
* 2 ounces orange juice
* 2 ounces white grapefruit juice
* 2 ounces passion fruit syrup
* 1 teaspoon honey mix
(equal parts honey, water)
First one I ever made I used pink G F juice. Only use the white now. I used Meyers silver cuz somebody left a bottle in my Sharkbite Bar. Easily my 2nd favorite Tiki drink.
Cheers
Btw, got the recipe here on T C.
