I was inspired so I made a Krakota
Before I added the coffee I found it a bit sweet, after I added the coffee I found it a bit overpowering at first (my float was a bit more of a 'dump'), the cold coffee edge in a new taste I've not experienced in a cocktail (coffee liqueur yes, cold coffee no!). I added a little honey mix & *bam* it came round to my tastes.
I hope to have a little coffee tiki cocktail voyage of discovery for a few weeks - so far I rate the Mr Bali Hai highly, it's a bit simpler to make too.
Also regarding passionfruit syrup: if I am making a drink that is passionfruit syrup heavy (is more than 1 shot, like a Hurricane) I use passionfruit juice & sugar syrup (in a ration of 3:1 or 2:1) to get the same effect. Or I just put half a passionfruit in if it's shaken (I dont mind the seeds). Anyone else do either of these?
2 questions for you Mr Destro100:
Are you revisiting some of the drinks as you go? Do you have any addition tips to share?
Second time I make a drink I usually appreciate it a little more.
What order are you doing the drinks in?
In looking up the Krakatoa in Remixed tonight, I noticed the previous page was the Hurricane - (H is before K in the alphabet) & twigged you'd missed some out - do you plan on making these at a later date?
