Just spent a few hours going through and voting my ballot for tomorrow; this calls for a drink.

The perfect way to honor Tuesday's election: A Tiki cocktail in the shrunken head of your vanquished rival ...


Or, we could just stop the divisiveness and all get along. Naw, I'd rather have a Shrunken Skull. Working on a new tribute recipe for The Mai-Kai's classic.

Okole maluna!

I finally got myself some Everlast tumblers and inaugurated them by toasting mighty Ku with an Atomic Grog 151 Swizzle. I went with Quince's reccomended Xaymaca-Coruba blend as my Kohala Bay sub and it really hit the spot.



Also finally got a chance to use these little Clement-branded swizzle sticks they were giving out at the Long Beach Tiki Social

Currently drinking a new cocktail I finalized the other day (using the pic from the other day, it's pitch black here now).

Tentatively called "Ginger and Merry Cran" thanks to the name suggestion from Greg Easter on the FB group "Tiki Recipes"



(note, I'd normally have put it in a more festive glass, but I really wanted the color to shine through here)

1oz Hamilton Black
1oz Lightly Aged VI/Cuban
2/3oz Lime
1.25oz Cranberry Ginger Syrup *see below*
2oz Ginger Beer (I like Gosling's but any spicy one will work)

Mix everything but the ginger beer in a shaker with crushed ice, shake to chill and dilute.

Open pour into DOF glass/mug, top with ginger beer, give a gentle stir, garnish with mint and candied cranberries.

*Cranberry Ginger Syrup-
1C Water
1C Sugar
1.5C FRESH Cranberries
1.5" piece of ginger, peeled and cut into thirds

Dissolve sugar in boiling water as per simple syrup. When sugar is dissolved add cranberries and ginger. Once they pop (~3min) pull out a dozen or so cranberries and chill them (for garnish). Turn down the heat and simmer until the rest of the cranberries have broken down completely. Remove from heat and once cool strain out the solids.

This will keep for a month or so in the refrigerator.

This syrup is also dynamite with gin and ginger beer.

Thoughts on the gardenia mix?



I love it! Though I'm no connoisseur, I thought the taste of it was fantastic – very rich, but fun with a steady climax of flavor...at least that's what I recall when I tasted a small amount before mixing. I've actually tried every version of the Pearl Diver but the one I'm "supposed" to, which is the one listed on the back of the bottle and on the outside of box from Jeff Berry's Pearl Diver glasses. That particular "finalized" version is a bit more refined with reduced amounts of everything.

Otherwise, I've made a Pearl Diver's Punch, Deep Sea Diver, and Skin Diver (which was the worst and actually doesn't call for gardenia mix but instead vanilla extract and heavy cream). The one thing I'll say is that I don't get the creaminess that I expect(ed) of the gardenia mix once all the ingredients are batched and blended together. But, prior to this I've only ever made a Deep Sea Diver tribute with the butter/honey mix and I can't recall my thoughts. I've had a Pearl Diver from Tiki Ti but also didn't have that creaminess I expected, but I don't even wanna guess what they use to substitute the gardenia mix. So there's definitely the factor that maybe Keith doesn't drink enough anymore to compare – if I had a Zombie or Mai Tai beforehand, then went to Pearl Diver, I might have noticed the vast contrast in profiles.

Also it's important to remember this is a coconut-base and not butter, so that's different too. One thing's for sure, I'm very excited to use more of it and play around!




We used to make our own Gardenia Mix but are now using the BG Reynolds. I've found the BG to lack the Vanilla flavor you get from home made...so I've been making Pearl Diver's with 3/4 oz BG Gardenia Mix(instead of 1/2 oz) and I add 1/4 oz Vanilla Syrup....very tasty! Brings back the creamy vibe!

After a little scare, white grapefruit juice has returned to my local grocery store. This calls for drinks.
