The official pendant and the official mug look like total must haves!!! The Ding Dong Devils might have to ditch the tour bus and charter a plane so we don't risk breaking down in Oklahoma and having to hitch hike to Ft. Lauderdale. It would be a shame to be told "The last pendant and mug were just sold!"

After much deliberation, we have a winner of our Deadhead Rum Cocktail Contest ....

It's John Tremain & Matt Anderson for their tasty creation, Tukupi's Cup! Mahalo and congratulations!

Here's the winning recipe:

TUKUPI'S CUP

2 fl oz Deadhead® Rum

3/4 fl oz Lime Juice

1/4 fl oz Passion Fruit Syrup (1:1 mix of passion fruit pulp and rich simple syrup)

2 tsp. Maple Syrup (Grade B)

Healthy squirt (2 dashes) Bittermens Elemakule Tiki® Bitters

Shake ingredients with two cups crushed ice and pour unstrained into a double old fashioned glass or vessel of similar capacity. Garnish with three Deluxe Foods sour cherries, an orange twist, and thinly sliced lemon and lime wheels.

The drink name is our nod to , legendary shaman and elder from the clan of the Jivaro tribe. These fierce warriors, who once reigned terror over the jungles of Ecuador and Peru, proclaimed their dominance and appeased their ancestors after battle by shrinking and preserving the heads (Tukupi) of their human conquests.

Mixologists: John Tremain and Matt Anderson

You made me go to Wikipedia to look up the difference between Grade A and Grade B maple syrup, and then also how shrunken heads are made. I'll stick to the maple syrup, thank you...

So mrs butterworths is no good?
Why is it all the new drinks that come out have stuff that is
way hard to find, or things you may use twice in your life.
"two drops monkey jizum extract"

Rum+Coke+lime add ice=Drink
For a sweeter drink add Kayro or Sugar Pops.

The top three drink recipes have been posted on The Atomic Grog for posterity (and easy reference):

http://www.slammie.com/atomicgrog/blog/2013/05/08/the-hukilau-crowns-winner-of-deadhead-rum-cocktail-contest/

Note that if you can't find Deadhead in your area, just substitute Bacardi 8 or a similarly aged, crisp and dry rum. In the winning recipe, Angostura is a fine substitute for Bittermens. Aside from those and some of the garnishes, all of the other ingredients in the drinks should be easy to find for any self-respecting Tiki mixologist :>)

Will Deadhead be for sale at Hukilau?
Is it for sale in Fla now?
I do want to buy some.

The thing is I got a whole Tiki drink book full of recipes That all
have way out ingredients.
And I have a pretty well stocked bar.
These people who have these rums I would think would want drinks people
that do not have tons of ingredients to work with.
Thus making their booze more easy for the average person to work with, use.

Congratz to the winners!!
I do want to try all of the drinks.

PS you can substitute Cap'n Crunch for Sugar Pops in my drink as well.
"any self-respecting Tiki mixologist :>)"
This too maybe my problem I just pour drinks, in more of a loathsome way.

Yeah, you won't be ordering this drink at the Applebee's any time soon. That's why the Derby Daiquiri became such a success. Every bar in America could make it. Check out David McCauley's recipe. It is easy to make and very tasty. It was the winner in our tastings.

"Jungle Fogg"

In a shaker add...
2oz deadhead 6 year cask aged
1/2oz Lemon Hart 151
1/2oz blue Curacao
1/2oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/2oz fresh squeezed white grapefruit juice
1oz fresh squeezed orange juice
1/2oz vanilla syrup (I used homemade)
1 & 1/4 tsp of Dons Mix (I used BG Reynolds)

Add 1/2 cup of crushed ice and shake thoroughly. Pour into high ball glass and add crushed ice to fill. Garnish with a long cinnamon stick piercing a quarter lemon wedge (pulp removed)

Still need the cinnamon syrup to make it, and vanilla syrup may also be obscure for the typical hi-ball bar.

tikiskip, according to a recent Deadhead press release, the rum is or will soon be available in: AZ, CA, GA, NJ, NM, NV, NY, OK, OR, PA, RI, TN, TX, and WA.

Also, check this link:
http://deadheadrum.com/wp/where-to-buy/#!/

I'm not sure if it will actually be fore sale at The Hukilau, but I would at least hope we'll see lots of samples.

And like I said earlier, it's close enough to Bacardi 8 that you can just substitute that. It's very tough for new rums to get a foothold in the market. Distribution can be difficult. I still find it nearly impossible to find Lemon Hart 151 in Florida, nearly a year after it's official release.
