Tiki Central's own Tikiwahine aka Shani from Victoria, Canada!

with her original drink Blackstrap Betty

which, despite its name, understands that Cruzan Blackstrap is best used in small amounts. That, combined with fresh lime, pineapple, and a touch of vanilla and coconut, makes it taste like an instant classic.

Congrats to Tikiwahine!!!!


BUT WAIT! STOP THE PRESSES!!

In the course of our discussion, we thought that several of the runners up were great as well, and so we decided to make the rest of the fall drink specials the next four runners up. So while there is only one winner, we'll be showcasing the rest of the top of the list as well!

And they are....

Corpse Canonizer by Kevin aka paranoid123 (NYC)

a contemporary riff on the Corpse Reviver #2, with gin, orange curacao, St. Germain, lemon, Herbsaint, and Aged bitters.

Gantt's Caipirissima by Craig aka Melintur (Portland, OR)

An ingenious take on the classic featuring some of Don's favorite flavors: grapefruit, cinnamon, and Rhum Agricole.

Golden Monkey Grog by Patrick Callahan (San Diego)

Another tiki-traditional tasting drink, with Allspice, maple, and demerara rum.

Mrs. Howell's Spicy Side by Jen aka JenTiki (Alafuckinmeda, CA)

Spiced Rum, orgeat, allspice, ginger, and more- served on the stem.


Congrats to the runners up!!

Look for all of these drinks to debut on our new drink specials menu, starting September 23rd.

Mahalo again to everyone!

Congratulations to all the winners! The recipes all sound delicious and intriguing; the specials menu always has innovative and delicious drinks on it, but this batch will be especially fun to lay my tastebuds on.

Tikiwahine, well done. With Blackstrap, no less! I look forward to finally being able to make something delicious with that stuff. It's like you've won two contests.
