The Black Magic Cocktail and How to sub a Defunct Rum

Oh how i wish sometimes that i could just for a day or two transport myself back to the time where the tiki drinks were served with rums like the 17 year old JWray, the quintessential Mai Tai rum or for example the Jamaican Dagger rums…

Well, there IS still some of those rums […]

UK RRRUMFEST!! Let it flow…

Let it flow, let it flow, let it flow! and flowed it did…rum here, rum there, rum everywhere – the UK Rumfest & Cane Spirits Festival is heaven for rum lovers and it shows people that rum is more than a spirit – it´s a lifestyle with a whole culture surrounding it.

The UK […]

SWIZZLES part 3 – 151 Swizzle

To continue my swizzle series…here`s the 151 Swizzle – and this is one hell of a tasty drink! it`s very simple too – and the combination of ingredients is brilliant. This drink was served by Tony Ramos at Don the Beachcomber`s in Hollywood in the 1960s.

Using 1.5 oz of the heavy Lemon Hart 151 […]

MIXING THROUGH GROG LOG 13 – Coconaut

Time to revisit the Coconaut which is a very nice Tiki drink. I wrote about it long ago and now its the 13th drink from Grog Log i stumble over. It contains only three ingredients – rum, lime and coconut cream (not cream of coconut which is a different thing)

I like the coconut in […]

EL DORADO 8 YEAR OLD RUM

It took a while but now i have finally been able to try out El Dorado`s eight year old rum. This is a blend of pot still and column still rums – aged in used whisky and bourbon barrels and was launched in the UK at Trailer Happiness in october-09 just after the UK […]

MIXING THROUGH GROG LOG – 1 The Ancient Mariner

I`ve been thinking about it for a very long time now – to mix every single drink in the Grog Log and blog about them.

This is going to be similar to what my fellow blogger Erik Ellestad over at Underhill Lounge is doing with his enourmous “Stomping through the Savoy project” which means he […]

EL DORADO 3 YEAR CASK AGED WHITE DEMERARA RUM

When i first heard about this rum i got really excited, i knew too well how good El Dorado rums are and i could only imagine how great an aged white would taste. It took long though before i finally got the chance to try it myself and in the meantime i heard only […]

EL DORADO RUM – THE LIQUID GOLD

LIQUID GOLD…

I can`t have a cocktail blog without writing about my favorite rum which is El Dorado…which indeed is a Demerara rum but even more so – its a Guyanese rum, and the only rums distilled in Guyana are those from DDL – the only true Guyanese rums.

In 1992, the company introduced […]
