From “Sippin’ Safari” page 95 by Jeff “Beachbum” Berry
- 1 1/2 oz. Light Puerto Rican Rum
- 1 1/2 oz. Amber Virgin Islands Rum
- 1/4 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
- 1/2 oz. Unsweetened Pineapple Juice
- 1/2 oz. Orange Juice
- 1/2 oz. Passion Fruit Syrup
- 1/8 tsp. Pernod or Herbsaint
Put everything into a blender and add six ounces of crushed ice. Blend it at high speed for five seconds.
And i couldn`t resist to add some of the liquid from my jar of homemade Maraschino cherries..and thatÂ´s what gave the drink the drink the wonderful shades of red.
So what goes with this tropical Tiki drink? well, i made a fried fish today â€“ i found a red grouper in our Asian store and fried it in my wok with some vegetables, coconut milk and hotpepper. The spicy food goes well with this tropical and refreshing drink.
I first cleaned the fish and then sprinkled it with fresh lime juice, rubbed in some salt and some ginger and leaved it to rest for a while. Then i fried it with some fresh veggies, a habanero hotpepper and coconut milk, sprinkled some fresh lime juice over it and served with basmati pulao rice.
To make the pulao rice, wash the basmati rice and leave in water for 30 min. Then strain and add to a pan with spices ( cardamom, ginger, salt, ground coriander, cumin, turmeric or indianÂ yellow egg yolk powder) fry until the rice has become translucent.
Then i add water (0.5 inch) and put to a rolling boil and leave to boil until you see small â€œholesâ€ in the rice. Then i turn off the stove and put the lid on and leave to steam finish. when done i take off the lid and put a clean kitchen towel over and leave to set for 10 min.
