Lapu Lapus are some strong rum drinks and it is said that they bring magic and makes you “see things on the other side” – whatever that means…
The term Lapu Lapu drinks comes from a legend that for some obscure reason happened to be the name sake of the drink Chief Lapu Lapu. The name [...]
Here` s a quick post on one of the more well known tiki drinks the Boo Loo. A while ago i had a Boo Loo weekend together with a few people on instagram, yes really…there´s quite a bit of tikiphiles and other tropical drink lovers out there..and it´s fun when everybody post up their [...]
Here`s and old favorite…the Eastern Sour. Orange and lemon juices, sugarcane syrup, orgeat and then rye or bourbon.
It´s drink number 20 in Grog Log and is also featured in Remixed where i also found the Western Sour which contains grapefruit juice and falernum. I find yellow grapefruit juice much tastier in mixed drinks [...]
I love the daiquiri! it´s so simple and tasty and the base of so many cocktails..
Since there´s two daiquiris in the Grog Log with just one drink in between (the Don`s own Planter`s) i put them together here in the same post.
The first is the Derby Daiquiri – a tasty daiquiri that [...]
A sumptuous mixture of lemon, lime and orange, delicious rums, brandy and orgeat – here´s a true tiki classic.
This was once the signature drink of the now closed down Luau Room at the Hotel del Coronado in Coronado, CA. The Hotel del Coronado operated between 1940 to 1070. This drink is still served [...]
Here we have one of those genuine steady tropical tiki punches, made to relax with in a rattan chair while the sun sets and the cikadas start their nightly concert.
Made by Donn Beach and most likely as is stated already in the Log, a drink made for his steak and coffee house “The [...]
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 [...]
When a classic cocktail is made right, it’s a marvel of balance of good flavours and it’s the same with tiki drinks. Everybody who has held a tall tiki mug or glass with a well crafted drink in it knows what I mean.
If there’s one thing I would want to repeat over and [...]
More blue drinks?
I thought it was enough with the two i made last time but Grog Log is calling for yet another one so i have to obey;-)
The Blue Reef is the second drink on the same page as Blue Hawaii in the Log. Its the Bum`s take on the Blue Hawaii [...]
The next drink from Grog Log is also a Beachcomber concoction named Beachcomber´s Punch. At first sight the recipe looks pleasant and uncomplicated and that`s exactly how i find this tiki drink. It contains my favorite rum which is demerara and just little pernod as well to give some dimension to this concoction.
Don the [...]
