The Lost Spirits Distillery have done it again! made a geeky rum that blew me away…this time it`s a 62 % ABV monster with espresso coffee and sarsaparilla notes…

A book entirely devoted to one of my favorite tiki drinks – the Zombie!!

For the first time ever (as far as i know) has an entire book been written about ONE tiki drink, the famous Zombie. That`s how much this drink fascinates…

Now the book does of course not contain only one Zombie […]

TOTC 2013 – Rise of the Zombie and European Rums

This is the drink that made the tiki drinks famous! invented by Don the Beachcomber and so influential that people named their bars after it.

If you have had a well made zombie you know what i`m talking about…

This seminar held by Jeff Berry, Ian Burrell and Steve […]

Drinks with Honey Cream Mix

Browsing through Don the Beachcomber´s “Little Hawaiian Tropical Drink Book” it´s clear that Don used a lot of honey cream mix. Trader Vic also used it but it seems to me that Don used it more. I tried it the first time many years ago ( in 2007) when i tried to make Don`s […]
