I don't see where you get the 'candy' reference from. It's 99 proof fer chrisakes!




Lime juice and lime (or "green") lolipops have very different flavors. This is also true for real bananas and banana-shaped Runts, for example, or banana-flavored popsicles.

Banana rum tastes like rum made from bananas, or at least rum with natural banana flavors. 99 Bananas tastes like strong alcohol with melted-down banana Runts. I refered to the flavor, not the sweetness.

Where do you guys buy the more fancy syrups like orgeat and passionfruit?



I still buy Trader Vic's orgeat, but the next time I am out I am going to make my own based on simple syrup, almond extract, and lemon extract. The TV syrup just does not have enough taste vs. sweetness for me. Some coffee places have Monin Orgeat that is supposed to be good.

And for passionfruit, I raid the local asian market for REAL passionfruit concentrate. Ingredients = Passionfruit, water. And it is thick! Good stuff with a taste that blows away TV's passionfruit make-believe stuff...in my opinion at least.

BTW, Welcome to TikiCentral!

Ahhhh, gotcha. I have the same feeling for cherry flavoured things, and don't care for that medicinal cough syrup cherry flavour.

I can't say I've ever tried banana flavoured rum, we just can't get it up here.

Yeah, cherry is also a good example.

if you can't find them at your local booze shop you can get them on trader vic's website. just remember that the shipping will be the same on one bottle as it is for three.




Try "fee brothers" - they're quite good. You must buy 12 bottles though. They have it all - fallernum, orgeat, marachino cherry juice - a lot of stuff.

They have a website, (Google FEE BROTHERS), then you call on the phone and tell them what you want, they ship it to you, you send them a check. It's pretty cool.
