  1. Mostly Cajun and Creole food.

  2. I would recommend Cointreau which is what i use as i can`t find Curacao de Curacao and i think Cointreau is very good in Mai Tais. I take it down to 1/4 th oz instead of 1/2.

    MxMo XLII: Dizzy Dairy

    Hi, this was a nice topic and thanks for hosting! My blog post is here: http://www.amountainofcrushedice.com/?p=7435 Cheers! Tiare SMOKY PINEAPPLE DELIGHT 1 pineapple, hollowed 5-6 chunks of fresh pineapple 2 oz tequila reposado 0.5 oz Crema de mezcal (Del Maguey) 1 oz honey-cream-mix ¼ oz orgeat Ting to top Hollow out a whole pineapple to make a drink vessel, the easiest way is to use a pineapple corer. Preferably use a pineapple thats is newly matured, they are less sweet. To easily take out the core in the middle, cut a bit with a small knife and/or twist it. Then take 1-2 slices and cut out chunks. If you dont have a fresh pineapple, don`t use canned juice…rather use a cartoned juice. Add all ingredients to a blender saving ice for last and blend at high speeed for exactly 20 sek. Then strain through a fine wire mesh sieve into the pineapple filled with crushed ice. top with Ting and serve immediately. Garnish a pineapple leaf and mezcal soaked cherry. HONEY CREAM MIX Take equal parts liquid honey, sugar and butter and heat it and stir to make a sauce.

    Luxardo 38% and 32%

    There is a discussion going on at the Ministry of Rum about 2 different Luxardos, one is 38% alc. and another one is 32%. When i read that i went and checked my own bottle and it is 32% I was thinking that maybe someone here will know why there`s this difference?
  9. For me its easy, i can only find one type of mint here.
  10. Its really sad when quality is cut down for instant profit. In our Tikibar (TikiRoom) luckily fresh fruits are used, also fresh egg whites. Mixes are banned. And at bestbars.se, TikiRoom has no 1 position in the category drinks. I believe strongly in in the use of fresh produce, better ingredients makes better drinks, simple as that, whether its a Tiki bar or other bar.

    New Formula Campari

    When you talk about a white Campari, its not the Cordial Bitter you talk about? A pic here from Ebay italy If that`s the case, it still exsists.

    MxMo XXVIII--Bourbon

    I`m still on my Paprika experiment cruise...so i made this spiced Paprika Whiskey Sour. Maybe Paprika doesn`t sound so very tasty in a drink, but this one is really refreshing. Spiced Paprika Whiskey Sour 2x2 cm red Paprika 50 ml Bourbon 20 ml Fresh Lemon juice 20 ml Raspberry pureé 30 ml Honey Spice Mix Garnish: 3 red Paprika strips. Muddle the paprika in a mixing glass and add the rest of ingredients and shake with ice, strain in ice filled rocks glass. Honey Spice Mix (2 drinks) : 20 ml Honey, 20 ml Water 20 ml Fresh Lemon Juice 2 cm piece crushed Cinnamon stick 8 crushed green Cardamom pods Stir honey with Water, Lemon Juice, Cinnamon and Cardamom in a small pan. Bring to a slight boil and simmer for about 15 minutes. Cool. Raspberry Purée 2 dl Raspberries, 1 tsp fresh Lemon Juice, 1 tsp simple syrup, add a little water, puree. You want a quite thin pureé, so if to thick add some more water. Strain through cheesecloth to discard the seeds.

    New Formula Campari

    I`m a Campari drinker since some 20 years or so and i`m quite disturbed by this change. I can only find the new watery version now and my old is long gone..very frustrating. The new one makes a "ok" drink, but the old one.. Maybe i can find some from Germany and if i do i would like to store them but they can`t be stored too long i suppose..so i wonder how long could they be stored?
