Catching up on a few prior comments ...
mikehooker: I don't think I've ever seen The Mai-Kai use nutmeg on the 151 Swizzle, though it certainly wouldn't hurt. Glad you guys are enjoying the tribute recipes. Their potency makes it gets tricky to review more than a couple at a time. Beachbum Berry's TOTC Swizzle at the Tiki Tower Takeover at The Hukilau was very interesting. Same flavor profile, except El Dorado 8 as the only rum. A little easier to knock back several of these. Working on a tribute recipe now.

Thanks for posting the recipe for the 1862 Rhum Punch, HH! I was able to get one of the table cards for the drink -- because it was a limited time special, and because I *really* enjoyed several of them, I wanted one of the cards before they all got tossed in the trash. Kern got one for me. It's nice how the boss can do that sort of thing... Great cocktail -- I understand that some credit goes to Jimmie from the Straw Hat Barmen for helping Kern by taste-testing that one over the course of several days while Kern was working on crafting it.
