Tim, here's one from last night. Forgive the shameless plug for Hulaween. Unfortunately, the transporter wasn't working.



I have a theory about the mix that may be used. Needs further investigation but it makes perfect sense.

To be continued ...

It took a while, but after thorough testing in the lab I've come to the conclusion that Don's Spices #2 (allspice dram and vanilla syrup) is included in the Black Magic. The full report is now included on the blog:

Great work, as always Hurricane! I can't wait to try the updated recipe.

I have tried Hurricane's latest version of the Mai Kai's infamous Black Magic utilizing 1tsp of Don's Spices #2 ( I made two yesterday), and all I can say is . . . if this version were any closer to the original, I'd be at the Mai Kai drinking it!

Thanks, Hurricane!

I was trying to hold off til the weekend on trying the new-improved recipe, but all these posts are just too much temptation.

This may be my favorite cocktail of all time. If it's gotten even better, I may have to fill up an IV bag & just start wheeling it around w/ me...
