I finally got some Kohala Bay. What would you say is the best cocktail to use it?

Cheers!

Had a Koloa Bay premixed Mai Tai on the plane to Hawaii (and maybe one on the way back too) Thought is was pretty good for a Hawaiian style Mai Tai.

That's a different animal, Maddog. Koloa is a Hawaiian rum from Kauai. Kohala Bay is an obscure dark Jamaican rum.

I thought about buying some of the Koloa Mai Tai premix, just to give it a try. United serves the Trader Vic's RTD Mai Tai on their fights to Hawaii. If you added some dark rum to it, it wouldn't be half bad.

Well, I guess the most well known connection to Koloha Rum is the Black Magic from the Mai Kai?

I believe there is a thread here on TC about making that one.

I would use at as the Jamaican rum component in any good Tiki drink recipe and see how it goes. I was lucky enough to get a handle of that stuff in Florida a couple of years ago. I've been timid about using it up. I should play with that too.

Life is short.

I tell myself that, but it can be hard to fight against the hoarder mentality.

I notice the Black Magic has 10 ingredients in it.

I needed a drink just reading over the list...

Hurricane Hayward is the man. He busts his ass for Tiki.

Mahalo professor! But I think you need to blame Donn Beach for all those fancy complex drinks :>)
