After drinking all those lapu lapu drinks i wrote about in my previous post i`m now gonna make drinks that has the word aku or aku aku in the name and there`s no other reason for doing that other than tiki drink research..and because i like rum drinks.
In my previous post about lapu lapu [...]
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 [...]
Time for a planter´s again! drink number 20 from Grog Log is Don`s own Planter´s. These are what i would call comfort drinks.
The history of the old Planter´s punch has been told many times and it´s not that long ago i did a post on it with eight different variations where Don`s own [...]
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 [...]
Cruzana is the 17th of the drinks in Grog Log and the name does of course come from the rum that the recipe calls for, Cruzan Gold rum.

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 [...]
Jamaican rum, lime, Grand Marnier and Creme de Cassis makes up Ciro´s Special which is the 12 th drink in Grog Log. Nothing much written about this one, it was made in Ciro´s nightclub in Hollywood. So let´s see what this one brings in terms of flavors…
My first impression was – too tart. But [...]
