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?
