Does anyone have a good (mai-kai-like?) Black Magic recipe that they'd be willing to share with me? I've been searching for a while, and I only have found the black-russin-like black magic. Not the delicious one like at the Mai Kai.

Thanks in advance!

You know who you need to talk to... He made it for us once before...

I have asked if I can share his recipes through the Grogalizer and he has remained strangely silent on the matter...

Yeah, I PM'd him last week and have heard nothing. I also noticed he hasn't posted here in a while... (6 days). hmmm.

Hey by the way! Thanks for the Grogalizer - its the first time I've seen that! Very handy indeed!

Keep in mind that some things take a lot of time, effort and (often) money to acquire. Some people are willing to give those treasures away while others prefer to hold it close to the vest for their own personal reasons. Maybe it's best not to begrudge their decision either way.

And just remember that when we get to heaven, we'll all find out what's in a Black Magic! But is there a well stocked tiki bar in heaven? Hmmmm...

If you wait that long, you'll miss happy hour.

Did anyone ever figure this one out? It's my favorite at the Mai Kai.

Black Magic I don't have.

However, you might like to try my "Dark Magic," currently on the menu at Thatch, here in Portland:

Dark Magic
----------
1 oz lime juice
1/2 oz pineapple juice
1/2 oz coffee syrup
1/4 oz passion fruit syrup
1/4 oz vanilla syrup
2 oz Coruba
dash bitters
eight drops Herbsaint (pernod if you must)

Shake with 6oz crushed ice and pour into Hurricane glass or Snifter, garnish w/ mint and lime wheel(s).

(you can also pulse in 5-6 one second burst in a blender with 6oz ice)

Hi Craig,

Can you recommend a coffee syrup or a link to a recipe? The Dark Magic sounds delish!

Thank you!

Chris

I have found no good coffee syrups on the market.
Here's my coffee syrup recipe (I make about 1/2 gallon at a time):

Brew a half-pot of good medium-roast, high body coffee using a full pot's worth of fresh ground beans.
4 cups strong coffee
8 cups sugar
Add the sugar to the hot coffee in a saucepot. Bring to a boil and let bubble for 15 seconds, remove from heat and stir.

TL;DR version: 2 sugar : 1 strong coffee


p.s. if you make the coffee the day before, all the better. The top notes that disappear when coffee goes sitting aren't wanted in this syrup, just those lovely dark, rich 'bottom' bass notes.

p.p.s this is also a great use for that coffee you make in the morning and you have to toss when you get home from work

Melintur is required to bring Dark Magic premixed in quart sized Mason jars to all of our parties, ideally there should be one I can hide for future use! This is a huge favorite around these parts!

addendum:

High Falutin' version: Replace 2oz Coruba with (1oz Smith & Cross, 1oz El Dorado 8,12, or 15 year) -- Delish!
