Does anyone have a favorite yet?

I just made Don's Beach Planter, page 17, and it was fantastic.I had all the ingredients except for the Christian Brothers Brandy. This drink got better as the ice melted, down to the last drop. Here is the recipe for those who don't have the book yet.

Don's Beach Planter


1/2 oz.fresh lime juice
1/2 oz. passion fruit syrup
1 oz. unsweetened pineapple juice
1 oz. amber Martinique rum
1/4 oz. dark Jamaican rum
1/4 oz. Christian Brothers brandy ( I used E & J X.O Brandy)
Dash Angostura bitters
6 drops (1/8 tsp.) Herbsaint Pernod (I made 4 drinks and used 1/8 tsp only for all)
4 oz. (1/2 cup) ice


put everything in blender, saving ice for last. Blend at high speed for no more than 5 seconds. Pour into pilsner glass. Add more crushed ice to fill.

From Don The Beachcomber's 1937.


I hope you'll like it too. Enjoy

I took the book to a local watering hole last night and had the bartender make me a Rain Killer. It was really good -- not too sweet, not too tart. Very balanced. I chose this partcicular drink because the bar had all the ingredients.

The Nui Nui immediately went into regular rotation.

I've made about 15 drinks from the book so far and my current favorite is the Jet Pilot. There's a lot going on in that drink with the spices of the syrups combining really well with the rums.

I can't say this is my favorite yet, but last night we made the "Cou-Cou-Comber". Tasty and unusual! Here's a photo, and we did follow the instructions to, "sip through a straw, eating the cucumber as you go."

Crap - does it get any more impressive than that? Your dedication is awe-inspiring, Randy (oops). I'm humbled....

Absolutely agree, Jet Pilot tastes great. But I mixed a Don's Beach Planter and I don't remember it as a very special drink. I'll give it a second chance, Hiltiki.

The Jet Pilot was my favorite until I tried the Three Dots and a Dash. I liked it even better than the Jet Pilot.

Agree totally. I've been fiddling with the recipe a bit (but not too much), and this is my favorite so far:

1/2 oz. Grapefruit juice
1/2 oz. Lime Juice
1/4 oz. Torani Cinnamon syrup
1/2 oz. Falernum
1/8 tsp. Pernod
1 oz. Appleton X/V
3/4 oz. Cruzan Black Strap
3/4 oz. Lemon Hart Demerara 151
Dash Angostura Bitters

Still haven't made through half the recipes but my 3 favorites so far are Don the Beachcomber's Coffee Grog (p. 15), Coola Culla Don (p. 45), and Three Dots and a Dash (my first is in front of me right now - yum!). I can't wait to try the Jet Pilot.

The strongest one by far was Jim's Special! Kelbo's Scorpion was pretty potent too.
