Maybe the people from Colorado who have never been to Tiki Ti and never had a Ray's Mistake believe that the question is answered, but those of us from LA that have had many Ray's Mistakes know that recipe is NOT the Ray's Mistake from Tiki Ti.

- The Ray's Mistake at Tiki Ti does NOT contain any coconut
- The Ray's Mistake at Tiki To does NOT contain guava
- and despite the rumor, the Ray's Mistake contains rum and does NOT CONTAIN GIN!

Hiltiki, that sounds delicious and I can't wait to try it!

I've only been to the Ti once, but that flavor does stick with you. I've pondered that a cross between a Spindrift and Puka Punch would get close (or at least be pretty dang tasty!)

You're probably right - but think about this, what string of coincidences occurred to have the Ray's Mistake become a drink of renown in Pagosa Springs, Colorado. On top of that, someone put together a recipe so that this drink could be replicated by others. Notice from the title that the drink is called Ray's Mistake from LA.

I agree that the Colorado recipe is way off, but I drink Ray's Mistakes on Wednesdays at the discounted rate. In fact, last week I watched them make 10 of them for me. And yes, it is Barton's Gin all day, with a Coruba Rum float. But I've also seen them use Vodka and/or well rum as the base. Could be that at the five dollar price point, I think they pour off surplus or grab whatever's there.

I'd really like it if people who have had the drink could describe the taste more. Can you taste passionfruit or does it just taste vanilla? How strong is the drink if you discount the float? I'm guessing they use 2oz alcohol in the drink. I'm pretty convinced the drink is derived from the Singapore Sling, so the ingredients list is probably rather short and simple:

2oz gin
1oz lime juice
1oz passion fruit syrup
.5oz pineapple juice
.5oz Liqor 43
drops of vanilla extract
club soda
float Coruba

I would start using the above as a base when trying to find the correct taste. Hopefully you guys with access to Tiki-Ti can crack it for us.

Went to LA on vacation a couple of weeks ago, and of course I hit up the Tiki Ti! First drink I had was the Ray's Mistake, all because of this forum

I don't have what you would call a refined palate unfortunately (my allergies ruin my sense of smell/taste), so unfortunately I'm not very good at pinpointing flavors. I will however say that this could very well be a gin drink instead of rum...it didn't have that rum kick as other tiki drinks do.

Now I know what you're saying..."but it's on the rum list part of his menu!" Maybe that's just part of their evil plan to throw us off the trail? Can I take my tinfoil hat off now?

I thought the drink was superb, but what *really* caught my attention was the Space Pilot. They told me what was in it, but unfortunately by that time my brain was so full of rum I forgot what he said LOL. I do remember 151 and Passionfruit, but that's it. Anyone know the recipe for it?

Okay, so what do these guys in the Washington Post know that we don't.

From a different tiki bar-- Los Angeles's Tiki-Ti -- comes the wonderfully Polynesian Ray's Mistake. Passion fruit, guava and pineapple juices, coconut milk and dark rum are suitably tropical. The "mistake" -- a shot of gin -- adds depth to the taste.

The above printed incase the link fails to work.

So does this mean that this "Majestic" serves the same top secret "Ray's Mistake" as Tiki-Ti? Someone's got some s'plainin' to do.

I don't know. The owner makes a big deal about authenticity, especially regarding Don the Beachcomber, but the Zombie he's serving looks to be the Patrick Gavin Duffy version.

Excellent point, Arriano! Beachbum Berry somewhat makes the point - and Trader Vic absolutely emphatically states, that when you keep a recipe a secret, others are free to interpret it and decide what the "official" recipe is. So far, it looks like the "LA's Ray's Mistake" recipe published by the Pagosaa Springs, Colorado booze store is the same one being used by this restaurant on the East Coast.

It also means that the Ray's Mistake is taking on a life of its own. I wouldn't be surprised to see it start appearing at Bars across the USA. And as the Trader warned, the reinterpretations will be sweet syrupy drinks that make everyone gag. When the Washington Post publishes the ingredients for Ray's Mistake, the drink is about to "Jump the Shark".

Vanilla + sweet + botanicals might be Ti-Toki liquor. Was 43 commercially available when Ray made the mistake?



According to the Licor 43 website, it was the top seller in Spain in 1950, so it's got a long history.
