Does anyone have any recipes? I just picked up some of the Trader Vics Macadamia Nut liqueur and I'd like to try some variations.

All I found in Beachbum Berry's books was a recipe for the Macadamia Nut Chi Chi, but it's very possible that I missed one.

Thanks in advance.

I've been curious about that myself. I've seen it at a liquor store near me. I've looked on the TV's web site recipes and they don't have any drinks posted that use it. Funny, they list a ton of over Vic's mixers, like margarita mix, and Tom & Jerry batter, whatever that is. The only things I've ever seen are the Passion Fruit Syrup, Ko Ko Kreme, Mai Tai Mix, Orgeat, Dark Rum and now the Macadamia.

mmm...the macadamia nut liqueur is really tasty!

The chi chis are great. Now that I think of it, I did make up a recipe that uses it, but was too tipsy to write it down or remember what the heck I did!

I'll have to break it open again this week and have some fun.

I would also like to know of anyone else's recipes!

Mahalo!

I happened upon a drink recipe that uses the stuff in the "Intoxica" book. Since I'm at the office now, I can't remember what the name was though.

Has anyone tried to copy the Hala-Kahiki's "King Kamehameha Royal Chocolate Drinks"? They sound like a standard milkshake (Ice Cream, Milk, Flavorings), but with Rum & Liquor added. Here's my quick approximation:

Hala-Kahiki's Kamehameha Chocolate Kopy

3 scoops of Chocolate Ice Cream
1/4 C milk
2 oz. dark Rum
1 oz. Macadamia Liquer
Chocolate Sauce
Whipped Cream
Crushed Macadamia nuts

Combine Ice Cream, Milk, Rum & Liquer in a blender & blend until mixed, add Chocolate Sauce to taste & blend 'til smooth. Pour into glass & top with Whipped Cream & chopped Macadamias. Garnish with a Cherry.

Last night I whipped up a couple of Intoxica's Mac Nut Chi-Chi's for a friend's birthday. Very tasty, with a powerful delayed kick to them. I normally don't like chi chis that much but the liqueur really softens the burn of the vodka.

As for other recipes, I haven't found any. But I brought back a bottle of Kahana from Hawaii this spring, and I've been experimenting. I've gotten good results substituting it for amaretto in some drinks. I also tried making a Mai Tai with Kahana instead of orgeat, and what I got was ... not a Mai Tai anymore, but it still felt good going down.

I know it mixes extremely well with milk or half-n-half.

Maybe some kind of White Russian variant?

Try this:

2 oz. strong coffee (chilled in fridge)
1 oz. Coruba rum (Myers as substitute)
1/2 oz. Creme de Cacao
1/2 oz. Liquor 43
3/4 oz. TV Macadamia Nut Liqueur

Shake, pour
Optional: soymilk/milk to taste.

I was looking for something ot use MN Liqueur in and threw this together and it wasn't bad at all. Sort of like iced coffee with a nutty kick.

Prince Kuhio
(from The Plantation Gardens in Kauai)

1 shot Macadamia
1.5 shot pineapple
2 shots amber rum
1/2 shot orange juice
dash of simple syrup

This was just reverse engineered by me and it's pretty close to the drinks I had there. I should have asked the bartender but I was too enthralled by the place.

That's a damn fine drink Pablus! They need your reverse engineering skills at Area 51.

We just returned home from Kauai and are trying to duplicate a drink we had at Paradise Seafood & Grill in Puhi called "Puhi Split". The grill is going out of business and we were lucky that they still had a fresh banana on hand or we would never have tried this drink!!

Here's our version made in the blender:

1/2 cup Macadamia Nut Liqueur
1/2 cup Kahlua
1/2 cup Dark Rum
1/4 cup Cream (Half & Half)
1 Fresh Banana
Ice to Finish Filling Blender

We have stopped at Paradise Seafood & Grill every year now for 6 years and will miss them very much! Hope some of you enjoy this drink!!

Chocolate Macadamia Nut Tart

From Nancy Matsui, The Arizona Republic
Sept. 4, 2004 02:01 PM

Crust
4 ounces softened cream cheese
1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 1/3 cups unbleached flour

In a bowl, beat together cream cheese and butter. Add flour and blend until pea-size crumbs form.

Knead into a ball. Divide dough into two equal portions. Roll out the portions to fit two 7-inch tart pans with removable bottoms, or pie tins. Put dough in pans. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes. advertisement




Filling
2 1/2 cups roasted macadamia nuts, whole and half pieces
5 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
4 teaspoons unsalted butter
4 eggs
1/2 cup sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Heat oven to 350 degrees. If using roasted, salted macadamias, wrap them in a paper towel and rub off as much salt as possible.

Put chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and heat until thoroughly melted. Stir periodically to speed up melting. Add butter and heat until melted.

In a medium bowl, mix eggs, sugar and corn syrup until well blended. Add chocolate mixture and vanilla and mix well. Fold in the nuts. Remove plastic wrap from tart pans. Divide filling between pans. Bake in the middle of the oven for 35 to 40 minutes.

Sweetened whipped cream</b>
1 cup whipping cream
2 tablespoons Kahana Royale (macadamia nut), Frangelico (hazelnut) or amaretto (almond) liqueur
or
2 tablespoons powdered sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine whipping cream and liqueur (or whipping cream, powdered sugar and vanilla) in a medium bowl and whip with mixer until stiff. Garnish tart with sweetened whipped cream.

Makes two tarts, 6 servings each.
