MxMo CVII, March 21, 2016: Burden of Proof
Mixology Monday lives on…..this is the 107th MxMo! This cult event is still going strong…since 2006 when it was first created by Paul Clarke, publisher of The Cocktail Chronicles, who ran the event for 6 years, and now as of August 2012, Frederic Yarm, one […]
Here´s an old favorite again, the Penang Afrididi #1. It`s a “forgotten” tiki drink from 1937 and it was created by Don the Beachcomber. I like Donn`s drinks and I like this one! it was served at Don the Beachcomber’s Caberet Restaurant in the International Marketplace in Honolulu, circa 1958.
I`m curious about the […]
Last weekend was the Fogcutter Challenge…..and this weekend we continued the boozy activity with the Jet Pilot Challenge! you were supposed to make a Jet Pilot or a variation of it and post up the picture on Instagram with the hashtag #jetpilotchallenge2015 and best picture wins a prize! you don`t even must make a […]
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 […]
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 […]
Third drink up for the Tiki Month hosted by the Pegu blog is a drink that was created by Martin Cate at Smuggler’s Cove – the nicely spicy 2070 Swizzle.
I`m serving it in my third mug from the Fireworks studio in Glagow, the coconut mug. I could have made a drink that contains […]
Happy Halloween everybody, here´s a drink to wake the living dead! – or at least to make YOU become like a zombie if you make too many…
It´s a variety of the classic 1934 Don the Beachcomber’s Zombie with a blend of aged and overproof rums, plus rhum agricole and then cinnamon, grapefruit and […]
Aloooha everyone! – it´s Mai Tai time…or rather – it´s Mai Tai rant time…
How many times does this need to be said??? – a Mai Tai is rum, orange curacao, lime, orgeat, simple or rock candy syrup and mint! and sometimes a spent lime shell in the shaker and glass. NOTHING MORE! really!!! […]
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 […]
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 […]
