Thanks for posting the results Jim, for those of us not there. Guess I'm off to mix up Joe's (congrats on the win Joe) Moon Barrel. That is, as soon as I figure out what the hell Peach Lambic beer is...



As stated in the rules, all the competitors' ingredients had to be widely available, or at least available online.

Joe's key ingredient can be found here:

I now realize that the phrase "widely available" now includes:

1. On the moon

2. In the past at a small grocery store in Savannah between the years 1908 and 1966

3. Inside the eye socket of a Yemeni Caliph

Well, maybe not that difficult.

A couple of suggestions for next year.

Since it was based on the Mai Kai Rum Barrel -
I think the judges should have all had a taste of a Mai Kai Rum Barrel first.
Then tasted the riffs.
Ian said he had never been to the Mai Kai until after the contest was over.
I know the judges know their Rum Barrels and all - but still - just a taste maybe.

I think 7 minutes is pretty quick - maybe try 9 or 10 - since that's how long most everyone took anyway.
Just makes for a sloppy experience. Bar wise I mean.

Loads of fun though and very interesting to taste most everyone's version of Rum Barrel.
VERY wide dispersion of flavors and that is what it was about, I'm certain.

Thanks, Jim! You were patient and even keeled and I appreciate it.
Next year - the Mugs will send in the big guns with Ken Kanaka.

leisure master - I'm coming for you. Let all of New York tremble.



PS: We could only use 10 ingredients - but the best version on the Jack Sparrow Barrel also uses a half oz of Creme de Cacao and only a half oz of Creme de Cassis rather than the 3/4 ox. It goes to eleven.

And the nuances of your drink have to be able to stand up to 90-degree heat, 70% humidity and 20 mph winds!!!
