Every year my wife's family does a round-robin party around Christmas. This year the stop at our house is for relaxation, which means party games and drinks. Since this year I'm hoping to have my bar up and running I was hoping to make some tiki drinks that would fill everyone with x-mas cheer. Any ideas?

Mahalo!

Well, how tiki any of this is is debateable but...

if you go by the general rule that tiki = rum in a tropical styled drink:

Egg Nog is very Christmas. Rum spiked Egg Nog is common. I have spiked Egg Nog with a combination of Redrum and 151 Lemon Hart. That's the fruit flavored Redrum, not the Voodoo spiced redrum. It gives a fruity accent to the egg nog and adding a little demerrara gives it a nice kick. Call it Tiki Nog. Go easy on the Demerrara. A little bit goes a long way.

Then there's always hot buttered rum. Can't go wrong with that.

Tropical coffee - coffe with rum (I know, not very imaginative.)

I couldn't agree more - hot buttered rum on a cold winters' night... MMMmm...

Trader Vic's makes a Tom and Jerry Batter


if you're providing drinks for lots of people, you could make your own

Yield: 6 servings

8 jumbo eggs
1-1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2-tsp. cream of tarter
freshly grated nutmeg
hot water

For each drink:
1 oz. Appleton Jamaican Rum
1 oz. Hardy Red Corner VS Cognac

Directions:


Separate egg whites and yolks.

In a large mixer, beat yolks until they're thin and transfer to another bowl.

Clean the mixer and add the egg whites and cream of tarter, beating until stiff.

Add powdered sugar and fold in yolks.

Mix until batter is thick, but light.

In a pre-heated mug, add one heaping ladle of batter.

Add rum and brandy.

Top with hot water and dust with freshly grated nutmeg.

Serve with a paddle or spoon.
Chef's note: For a richer drink, boiled milk can be used in place of water.

I'm on board with the hot buttered rum recommendation!
Here's a previous
thread with recipes.

The Macadamia Nut Chi Chi (Intoxica, p. 50) reminds me of Christmas cookies whenever I have one. Try it.

I'm right in there with the Hot Buttered Rum and the Tom and Jerry ideas. Have you thought, though, about the Sidecar? It's a traditional Holiday Cocktail. Try making it with a good rum instead of the brandy (I think Beachbum Berry actually suggested this in one of his books... If he didn't, he should have).

I got this one from www.themodernmixologist.com

Hot Spiced Cider

1 750 Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum
1 gallon apple cider
1/2 cup clover honey
5 cinnamon sticks
30 whole cloves
1/2 vanilla bean
(serves 15)

Start by breaking the cinnamon sticks and cloves and bruising the vanilla bean.

Next make a bag (with cheesecloth) with the spices.

In a large saucepan combine cider, honey and spice bag, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes.

Add Spiced Rum and serve in heated mugs with a cinnamon stick garnish.

......personally I would skip the bag and the whole saucepan and throw it in a crock pot and then strain out the spices with a slotted spoon.

But it sounds delish!

I always thought of hot spiced cider as more of a halloween drink than Christmas. That is probably because when I was a kid my mom often made hot spiced apple cider for the kids as a halloween treat. When I became as adult I added rum, brandy or bourbon to it and drinking one or two of these has become something of a halloween night tradition. My usual recipe...

heat apple cider in a sauce pan with ground cinnamon, allspice and cloves (in decreasing amounts). In a, irish coffee glass add a shot of brandy, bourbon or an aged or spiced rum, a little bit of butter, a teaspoon of benedictine and top off with the hot spiced cider. Use a cinnamon stick as a swizzle. Top with whipped cream and a little nutmeg as a garnish. Very nice!

Thank you all for holiday advice! I'm going to try a few of these before the event. In fact, the wahine's out for the weekend, so after the kids go to bed I think I'll try one or two tonight.

I whippped up a couple of this new holiday cocktail last night and thought it was great, if I do say so myself. Actually the girlfriend thought so too:

Christmas Island

2 oz Crème of Coconut
1 oz Don’s Mix
1 oz Falernum
2 oz Dark Jamaican Rum
1/2 oz Fresh Lime Juice
2 dashes Angostura Bitters

Blend for five seconds with crushed ice for five seconds and then pour into a cocktail glass. I garnished mine with a spent lime shell, but maybe a candy cane should have been pierced through it.

Here's another riff on the classic Tom and Jerry recipe:

Tabonga and Jerry

1/2 cup of Tom and Jerry batter
1 oz. Cruzan Blackstrap Rum
1 oz. Presidente Mexican Brandy
1/2 oz. Fresh-squeezed Lime Juice
1/2 oz. Falernum

Add all ingredients to a tiki mug with a handle, then add boiling-hot water to fill. Dust with ground nutmeg and garnish with a cinnamon stick.
