I actually used some of my Mocambo 20 in a Mai Tai once (it was worth trying) but I think of it more as a sipper to pull out very occasionally (I got my bottle about 2 years ago).

I assume you had to ship everything home?


Nope

I took a hand luggage sized suitcase inside my regular hold luggage size suitcase on the way out.

I also took some bubble wrap & a couple of these:



I got them when ordering stuff online from the Whisky Exchange - I try to take them whenever I go abroad. They fit a bottle (or oversized tiki mug) in each side.

I knew about half of what I would be bringing back before I went (I had to order them). I boxed everything non alcoholic up excessively thickly for my hold luggage (which is a hard case) & filled my hand luggage with clothes.

Family stowed a few of the smaller items & helped with the liqour allowances so I stayed legal - if Id been able to being more back I would have!

Anyone ever use this Peychaud bitters? Is it a suitable replacement to Angostura?



like Ad said, its nothing like Angostura; its a new orleans cocktail component, most famously called for in a Sazerac. I also use Peychaud's in the Cocktail a la Louisane, w/Angostura in the Vieux Carre; and w/Angostura in my Planter's Punch.

Thanks for the bitters info guys, that probably explains why the Christmas Islands I made for the in-laws at Christmas weren't quite the way I remembered from making 'em at home with Ango. I gave them the ingredient list and Peychaud was what they picked up so I went with it. I guess I'll have to develop a taste for sazerac. Only tried it once at Luke in NOLA and was fairly indifferent to it.

I hit the white rum jackpot at a hole-in-the-wall store, snagging three bottles that I've had on my hit list for a long time ...
