Okay, a successful evening!

This time I had Smith & Cross with Barbancourt 8, which was a little dull... but had that patented kick that I enjoy. The Smith & Cross with Flor de Cana 7 was much better, really nice combo although, as with the last one, its strength overpowered much of the other flavors.

Then I tried something weird.

Lemon Hart Original with Bacardi 8 year. Seriously, what the hell did I just do to my drink? It was really really good... but tasted nothing like any of the other Mai Tais I've made. God knows what happened with that particular combo, but it was very delicious to my tastes and different enough from a regular Mai Tai to feel like another drink entirely.

Has anyone else tried it? I was so surprised how much difference the blend of rums would make.

I'll definitely give that blend a shot. I've been using Bacardi 8 a lot lately and have enjoyed every drink I've made with it.

Tonight I had a friend over and we had Puka Punches with Cana Brava, Bacardi 8, Coruba and Lemon Hart float. With homemade falernum and passion fruit syrup it was absolutely delicious. Followed those up with a Stiggins Daiquiri. If these were the only two drinks I was allowed to drink the rest of my life in no way would that be disappointing.

Last night there was a neighborhood gathering so I brought a Big pitcher of Big Bamboo over and it was a Big hit! I'm really loving this drink. I did the recipe times twelve and didn't want to squeeze that much grapefruit so ended up using bottled Ocean Spray white for half of the called for amount which made it pretty bitter. I added some extra passion fruit and a little honey mix and sugar syrup to cut the bitterness and it was excellent. Non-tikiphiles were asking for the recipe which is always a good sign.

This thread always gives me an inferiority complex!

For tonight: Fiiiiiinnallyy:




Sadly, I'm disappointed. There's a hint of what I remember, but an unpleasant other/after taste.
It didn't taste as good as remembered last summer at the one place we found it on Kauai, either.
Either it's changed for the worse, or I've become much more spoiled since it was regularly available.

Porp said: hang10, that Typhoon looks and sounds awesome!

It was Bruddah



Bama- I know what you are sayin
At first I thought it was a little different
But then thought maybe it was the 2 year absence
But, we still like it



Cheers all

Had a couple friends over. We started with a Fogg Cutter bowl (just doubled the Bali Hai at the Beach recipe and made it a communal drink), then whipped up some Puka Punches followed by Cobra's Kisses. All extremely tasty and super strong drinks. Everyone was satisfied and feeling great. Mission accomplished. Let's do it again tomorrow.
