I came to tiki through my longtime interest in cocktails. Ive never been a professional bartender (although two years ago, I tried to quit my job and thought Id occupy my unemployed time by going to bartending school. None of that ever happened. Long story; well have a drink sometime and Ill tell you it), but Id say that creating cocktails is an amateur hobby. Ive shared some of my recipes (or formulas, as Trader Vic calls them in his Rum Cookery & Drinkery book) in the What Are You Drinking thread, but I thought Id put them all in a new, specific thread. Im not quite as visually artistic as others on TC, but this is one way I think I can contribute and share some tiki inspired talent.

Today is Repeal Day, so I thought Id start with a Club Babita.



Club Babita

3/4 oz light Virgin Islands rum
3/4 oz gold Jamaican rum
1 oz pineapple juice
2 tsp falernum
1 tsp maraschino liqueur
1 dash orange bitters

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.

Pineapple is my favorite fruit, so I look for ways to use the juice in recipes. I was thinking about a classically-styled cocktail when I was working on this formula, and after playing with the falernum and maraschino amounts, settled on this version. Naming it was easy; Id recently watched the 1949 Doris Day movie, My Dream is Yours, where
she dances in a bamboo club and imagined my drink could have been the house cocktail, so I named it after the place.

You need a drink called "the Hamo Blamo"

What do you suppose should be the ingredients for that?

Remind me later to talk about my thoughts about creating a cocktail around a name as opposed to naming a cocktail after its been created....

Yikes, Mike; dont you think it could use some sweetener...?

Actually, what if we turn it into a basic punch?

1 oz Plantation O.F.T.D. Overproof Rum
1 oz Lost Spirits Navy Style Overproof Rum
1 oz Lemon Hart 151 Overproof Rum
1 oz lime juice
1 oz ginger syrup (not liqueur)
1/2 oz simple syrup
1/2 oz grenadine
4 oz club soda
1 dash Angostura bitters
1 dash orange bitters

Build over ice and stir. Garnish with freshly grated nutmeg and lime peel.

I dont have any Lost Spirits, so someone will have to test this for me. If you dare.
