Why is everyone putting gin in Ray's Mistake when the menu places it in rum drinks and not mixed liquor drinks? And I tasted no gin in it last night.



I try to watch Mike carefully when he's putting one together, and I can definitely confirm that there's gin (Barton's) going into it, along with gold rum (also Barton's) in addition to that hefty float of Coruba.

As with the above, I can also confirm. When Tiki Koro and I last hit up Tiki Ti, we both noticed there were some drinks advertised with multiple spirits but for whatever reason were listed under rum specifically. Maybe it's inconsistency, maybe it's because the drink is particularly rum-forward or rum-heavy?

That's probably it. Regardless of what our tribute recipes may say, there's no constraint on the coruba float other than the space left in the glass after it's been blended. They just up end that bottle and keep pouring until they run out of space, so it ends up having a really strong dark rum note in it.

I had a very surprising experience with Barton's last night. A family member came over, I offered him a drink, and he wanted gin, lime, and soda on ice. I asked what kind of gin, and showed him a decent selection of 7 or 8 good high-end gins. He declined the high end stuff and wanted the cheapest I had - "id doesn't matter." I went to the very back of the gins and pulled out my Barton's. I was very honest and told him it was the lowest-end gin I had, strictly bottom-shelf at Wal-Mart's liquor store and only like $12 or $13 for a 1.75l jug. He still told me that's perfect. So I actually served Barton's that evening to a real human being. And he enjoyed it.

I've never actually seen a Barton product outside the walls of the Tiki Ti. Even Hi Times doesn't seem to carry it. They must be buying it direct.

Finding Barton's here in Austin was like finding hens teeth. Tried Icky's Mistake and look forward to having many more til I get back to the Tiki Ti to better contribute anything I may feel of any consequence.

Love this thread...
