from observing the bartenders at the columbia in tampa:
put ice in a pitcher, about a cup of club soda, add a split of frexinet champagne, squeeze in fruit juice (lemons, lime, orange, etc) add marachino cherries, jigger brandy, jigger orange curacao.
This is the BEST!!!

johnkremski, welcome to Tiki Central and thank you very much for an interesting recipe!
I think there are some other TCers in Tampa. Tampa's a great town; I lived there when I was a little kid for a while, on Bayshore Blvd. I remember a really great seafood restaurant on Bayshore -- the Colonade. Always packed. Is it still there?
I also remember when no white man would dare go into Ybor City after dark but on my last visit saw that it had been all hipped up -- or at least part of it -- restuarants for yuppies, art galleries, etc. Really nice.
I also found that the Cuban sandwiches were still excellent.

The Colon-aid is still there.
The food is...annnhhhh.
Lots of better places for fresh fish now.
I always thought they should go Tiki with their decor.
But then - I think that everywhere I go.
