Kevin, thanks for a great thread. I tried both of your latest cocktails, I found the Oro the Los Tontos to be a little too tart for me but enjoyed it nevertheless. I loved your own creation Sol y Sombra, it had very interesting flavor and was refreshing. The combination of Almond Extract and Pernod was very pleasant.
Thank you! The Sol Y Sombra (in the pineapple) is Joe Scialom's recipe (published in Potions of the Caribbean). My original recipe from the episode was the Oro de Los Tontos with the Pernod and almond. A few drops of almond extract (when used sparingly) can really have a positive impact on a cocktail. I picked that up from Beachbum Berry's recipe for the Captain's Grog.
Thanks for listening in; there's more good stuff in the queue!
if it's not a little complicated, it's probably not worth it.
