Hello, Hard day?, Take a load off. Welcome to the Lagoon Room.




I hear you like Tikis? I've got some around here somewhere.





You know what I was just thinking about? COCKTAILS!! Now there are some fine mixers on this board. Since I've been posting on TC, I have had some great drinks, mixed by some great bartenders. Mai Tais, Reverb Crashes, China Clippers, Scorpions, Monkey Pods, Pain Killers, Hell in the Pacifics, Tahitians, Fog Cutters, Queen Park Swizzles, Suffering Bastards, Hurricanes...Hell, the list just goes on and on. My point is, if you want to know how to make Tropicals, ask TC, People here know what to do.



Now, what I mean to do with this thread is explore a different cocktail every week. I'll post my thoughts on recipe, presentation and drink-ability. It is my purpose to invite debate. I hope to see some spirited discussion on this thread. Everyone has an opinion and it is all good. Lets here what you have to say. Be vocal.



Now some post about form and process can get a little preachy. Remember, Manners are the way we show others we respect them, so please be courteous. If you want to storm this thread as some arrogant, self absorbed, King of the Bartenders, please don't, just write it in your blog so I can avoid reading it.Thank you.

Room 135 will live forever

Thanks Jeff

A gift from OMIH Fil Slash, Thanks Fil!!!

First drink we'll tackle- The Planters Punch (coming soon)

Glad to see the resurrection of the Lagoon Room. (Don't let Bamboo Ben see those white walls.)
Good thread, too. GROG definitely want to know more about the recipes, taste, and mixing of cocktails from the experienced alcoholics----(oops)---- mixologists on the board.

What a beautiful room! I hope you don't mind if I steal a few ideas (and that sofa) for my own humble space! Great job, Al!
Cheers!

Wow, you read my mind! That was the drink I was going to suggest as I read through your post. A great drink to start off with, especially considering it's historical significance and all. Much mahaloz for the fantastic Planters Punch that you made for us at the Lagoon Room - it was the best!!!

One thing that I would like to bring up on this thread. Al's Lagoon Room is well stocked, and he can pretty much make up any drink at a moment's notice. He even had dry ice, for christ's sake! I am actually setting up my home bar this week, and I would appreciate advice on how to stock a tiki bar - I'm talking alcohol, mixers, tools, glassware, swizzles, accessories, etc. I would like to be able to whip up just about any drink from the grog logs or throw a small party without hesitation. Granted, I already have a fairly good selection of rums, mixers, a couple of shakers, a blender, some glassware, and of course tiki mugs. Still, I'd like to hear advice - it would help me out, and I'm sure would be beneficial to others, whether they are setting up a tiki bar in their house, or they already have one in full swing.
