The Virgin Island Kula is also a Tiki Ti drink. The recipe is published in Potions OTC. This one is really tasty.

Does anyone know what the "kula" in the name comes from and what it means? there´s a couple different "kula" drinks out there and i`m curious what the name means and what makes a drink a "kula"?

Off topic, but I tried the Virgin Island Kula again. This time with a couple of "mistakes". I hoped it would turn into a Ray´s Mistake (a drink that I have never tried...). Unfortunately the mistake became a bit too sweet and the passion fruit got a bit too much. Anyway, here it is. My "mistake":

1 oz passion fruit syrup
1 oz Beefeater gin
1 oz Havana Club 3 Anos
1 oz lime juice
1 oz orange juice
0,5 oz vanilla syrup
0,5 oz orgeat
0,5 oz soda water
float 0,5 oz dark jamaican rum

I believe it's just a spin on the word "cooler," indicating a cold refreshing drink. Like Cactus Cooler soda, or Kactus Kula at the Ti.

I tried out the Virgin Islands Kula - not for me, too sweet, not enough kick.

I had the Sumutra Kula (which I was inspired to make by Tiare's post)

Four Jim's Specials at the Tiki Ti.

At long last I'm heading back to my favorite place - Tiki Ti! - this Wed. Will have a Ray's Mistake but want to try something new. These were some ideas.
Can anyone shed any light on them?
*Space Pilot
*Scorpion
*Tiki Gold
*Hong Kong
*Top Secret
*Great White Shark

Drinks I've had there already: Bayanihan, Rum Barrel, Sumatra Kula, Painkiller, Ray's Mistake, 151 Swizzle.

I adore the Hong Kong, strong flavors of vanilla and passionfruit but with a nice tartness and lime oil-y finish from the fresh lime wedges. The Tiki Gold is like a bigger Beachcomber's Gold, also very nice.

I was pretty disappointed in Space Pilot, pretty much just rum and lime-forward, nothing too memorable.

Thanks Pat - Hong Kong will be #2 on my list.

Thanks also for the advice on skipping the Space Pilot.
Anybody tried any of these?

Nui Nui - I've made a variation of this at home.
Pearl Diver
Vicious Virgin
Penang
Montego Bay
Tiki Ti Special
Songakura

Responding to myself - I seemed to remember making a Montego Bay at home. Looked it up, of course, its in Intoxica! I've tried all the drinks with pimento dram since I finally got a bottle of St. Elizabeths.

Pearl Diver is in Sippin' Safari.

Vicious Virgin is in Remixed.

Penang is probably related to Penang Afrididi, also from Sippin' Safari.

That leaves Sonakura and Tiki Ti Special as the real unknowns from my list. But Sonakura rings a bell from somewhere.

Any other stealth picks I'm overlooking? Has to be rum based and something I can't easily mix at home.

Also still thinking about that Great White Shark.

I seem to remember the Rum Barrel is really good there. But that may have been after 4 or five happy hour Rays Mistakes.

Their Nui Nui is fine. I'd skip the Pearl Diver because I'm relatively sure they aren't making a pearl batter so not sure on how authentic it tastes. I had one a few years back and can't give a reliable review.

My recollection of TT's Pearl Diver is that it was made with orgeat. I don't remember hating it but I didn't like it enough to be lured away from my Fog Cutters and Hong Kongs.

Could the Sonakura be a take on the Sunakora? (Also a Don's drink that Beachbum Berry has decoded [at work so don't have access to my books, but it is in the TotalTiki app at least])
