As a part of the montly topics that the members of the CSOWG are writing at the mixoloseum blog i choosed to write about the Kamehameha Rum Punch.This interesting drink recipe is from Sippin`Safari and originates from the Hotel King Kamehameha in Kona, Hawaii, as the origin of the drink around 1960.

But there´s more to the name than that.

I also found a very interesting version called The Kamehameha Mighty Punch.

Kamehameha Punch – an exotic blend of dark and light rums, fresh juices, blackberry brandy and more..

The Mighty Punch is a tasty mix of tropical juices, mango pure, Tahitian limeade and cayenne pepper!

So head over to the Mixoloseum blog to read more about this Royal Punch and the Mighty Punch and sample the recipes and the story about this punch!

There´s something very special and relaxing about a tall tiki drink that once you really feel it – you know it and when the tiki has got that magical grip on you you`re probably hooked for life which isn´t a bad thing.

These are two exotic and tasty tiki drinks you shouldn´t miss.

International Cachaca Day

Cachaca – made from distilled cane juice is one of my favorite spirits (after rum 🙂 then again, this is rum`s cousin and its time to celebrate the International Cachaca Day!

International Cachaça Day was started by Sociedade Brasileira da Cachaça, a Brasilian government organization. It was created to commemorate June 12th, 1744: the day when Portugal, then the colonial authority in Brasil, outlawed the production and selling of cachaça.

Cachaca is most commonly used in the all popular caipirinha but also the batida is a refreshing drink and very common too.

Batidas (pronounced ba-chi-da) means “shaken” or “milkshake.” in Portugese. Its cachaca cocktails made with fruit juice or pureed fruit, usually with sugar added. Milk or sweetened condensed milk are also commonly used.

How thick you want it its really up to you, just add more juice if it gets too slushy.
