Vieux Carre. Rum-free, decidedly non-Tiki. And delicious.

Yep, that cocktail is the other reason my bottle of Benedictine is nearing it's end.

Remixed night tonight. . .

Aku Aku Zombie, Tiki Ti Puka Punch, and a Steve Crane Luau Rum Barrel.

The drinks are going down easy tonight. Wishing tomorrow wasn't a work day.

Tomorrow ain't a work day for me either I'm going tiki hunting in the morning & carving in the afternoon!

A few drinks to get me in the mood:

Drink no 1: Hemmingway Diaquiri.



I prefer it blended, it's pink because I add a little grenadine for a fruity touch ~ try it! I used agricole 'To Have & Have Not' style after reading it on this thread - definitely try the sub if you like agricole.

Drink no 2: Navy Grog.



To use up 'surplus to requirements' rum, I used 2 Cockspur / 1 Kracken / 0.5 Pussers. Cockspur is a good rum IMO (readily & cheaply available), Kracken isn't good - I added the Pussers to 'save' the drink as it was too light... it didn't really! I should have stuck to the jamacian/demerara/puerto rican combo...

Drink no 3: Old Fashioned with Knob Creek.



Not tiki but oh well... I make Old Fashioneds with various whiskey & bitters. This is my first try with Knob Creek, pretty good

My current favorite Old Fashioned is with Four Roses Small Batch and good old Ango.

Tonight it is Bahias for thr Missus and Reverb Crashes for me.

I like the look of some of those beers - where do you get them in the UK Pikeys Dog?

I do like an Old Fashioned! Amongst all my bourbon / rye / bitters I've got 3 combos that work well IMO:

Pikesville Rye with Angostura & muddled orange
Woodford Reserve with Peychauds & Regans
Wild Turkey 101 with Fee Bros Aztec

I saw you had a Vieux Carre earlier in the week Sunny&Rummy - I've tried a few times but I think I'm just not a red vermouth man or it's past it's best - I won't splash out on an expensive bottle because I use so little & can't seem to find half bottles!

If you've got Benedictine & Brandy. I recommend a B&B - nice & easy!

Definitely worthy drinks

Good, fresh vernouth makes all the difference. I typically stock Noily Pratt, but Dolin is great and Cinzano works as well. If you don't think you are much of a red vermouth fan the Vieux Carre is one of the drinks that I think can make a convert of you. The others are a good honest Rye Manhattan and a Negroni which I think is may be the most perfect three ingredient cocktail ever.

eta: and if you keep your vermouth in the fridge it will keep well for several months.

Trader Vics Beverly Hills Mai Tai.

It seems like no LA TV locations can/will make the original 1944 recipe. I was at LA Live last night. Ordered a top shelf 1944 but it was way too sweet. Had a Dr Funk after that that I didn't like too much either. BH location seems to make better drinks. They use a Mai Tai recipe from 1950 and it is pretty good.

Navy Grog same place. Good and I like the rock candy. Strong but a bit sweet.
