Hey Thanks Bincho, for posting the liquor list. See Beach Bum Berry's "Grog log" for another list. Bill, Professional bar setups usually only have bottles stacked one deep or if they're stacked two and three deep they are on risers so that each "Layer" of bottles is higher than the one in front so you can see it. Check this out next time you go to a bar. I can't tell you how many times I lost a bottle only to find it just out of sight line. I've also learned it is easy to mix from smaller bottles, 750 ml instead of half gallon bottles, because of ingredients "hiding" behind the larger bottles.

Cammo, come by anytime I'll E you my number. I was going to post on my plantation punch, but, I use Jon English's Fassinola and I discovered it is rare as hen's teeth. I used to get it at High times and I have a supplier in SD, but no one else is going to find this stuff. I am trying a substitute everyone can buy, and will post soon. Many of my recipes have hard to find ingredients and I'm trying to make this so everyone can make these recipes.

Hiphipahula I got the naked girl in Palm Springs. That's all I know. Philippines maybe???

Alright, This is how I do a Planters Punch.

Planters Punch
3 OZ English's Red Tropical Gold Fruit Mix (Fassionola)
Juice of half Large Lemon
Juice of one Small Lime
1 1/2 OZ White Rum
1 1/2 OZ Mid Range Gold Rum (Appletons, Pyrate, etc.)
Shake with lots of Ice.
Strain into a chimney glass.
Add Ice to fill. (not too full, Make room for the Meyers's and soda)
Splash with Soda Water. (1/2 to 1 OZ?)
Splash a little Dark Rum. (not a float, a splash)
Garnish with Lime Wheel.

I like to use oversize Scorpion Bowl Straws.

Then I cut them down a bit with Scissors. (POLYPOP!!!!)

Ta -Da What a drink. Don't go Garnish Crazy.

If you make this drink correctly this is what the person drinking it should look like. Notice the blissfull look of contented happyness, the half slit eyes, the full smile, SUCCESS!!!

Tiki Leki,
Bosko sells these straws on his website. I've seen them at Oceanic arts. They're hard to find.

Bump for this thread! Yay for Al's Planter's Punch - it is awesome!

Hey Al, I think it might be time to show us another fine cocktail. Any suggestions? Your scorpion bowl is the best I've ever had, hands down! Would you care to disclose it's fine construction? Or is that more advanced play? Are we ready to take off our training wheels for that one, or do you have another finely crafted cocktail that you'd like to show us how to construct?

Anyone (other than me) care to revive this ultra cool thread? This site, and especially this Tiki Drinks and Food Forum, could use some spirited debate on great topics like this, before everything simply devolves away...

I have found that Pat O'Briens Hurricane Mix is a great substitute for Fashinola.

It tastes so similar that I would bet the first Hurricanes they mixed probably used it. I keeps forever in the refrigerator I hardly ever use it and it always tastes fresh and ready to mix.

That is interesting. Do you buy it as a pre-made syrup, or do you mix it from the powdered mix? And if you mix it on your own, do you make it more concentrated or follow the way they recommend on the package?

By the way, Fassionola is still available. Al posted about it's availability earlier in this thread:

Mr Gnoman,
Thank you for the comments. I have read that thread and I appreciate those who contributed to it. I respectfully disagree with the statement that Fassionola is similar to passion fruit syrup, or is an acceptable substitute. If you reconstitute Jon English's Fassionola you with water or pineapple juice you get a drink that taste "like" Hawaiian Punch. Add water to Passion Fruit Syrup and it taste markedly different. The difference is similar to Hershey's Chocolate Syrup and Torani chocolate syrup, one being made with a base of Chocolate, the other being made with a base of clear sugar syrup flavored with a little chocolate essence. Fassionola is fruit punch concentrate. Smart and final, I'm told, has a fruit punch concentrate. I'll get some this weekend and see how it works. I've been looking for Hawaiian Punch Concentrate, so far, no luck. Mind you I still get Fassionola from

John likes you to call ahead with order so he can pull it and have it ready at Will Call. open Mon-Fri, 9 to 5.


I've tried my Planters punch with TVs passion fruit syrup instead of Fassionola, It's not as good.
Mahalo,
Al


I have a couple of bottles of Fassionola (one green, one red), and some Pat O'Brien's Hurricane Mix in powdered form. Let me know how you mix up your Pat O'Brien's Hurricane Mix, captnkirk, and I'll do a taste comparison.

To bad I don't have any Hawaiian Punch concentrate. They don't make it in bottled syrup form anymore, right? Do they still make Hawaiian Punch in frozen concentrate form?

Thanks for resurrecting this thread. The straw thread reminded me that I needed to come back here for a good review. Sorry if this has been asked before, but how long are scorpion bowl straws? And has there ever been a clear glass scorpion bowl?
