That looks like one fine Mai Tai to be, to me.
Here’s what I like
1oz white rum
.5oz banane du bresil
1oz lime juice
2oz pineapple juice
Shake and strain over fresh ice
Float 1oz spiced / dark rum
Sounds delish and enjoy! I’m envious!
Just fabulous! At a favorite resto on Maui, their house Mai Tai comes topped with a passion fruit foam, and is sublime! I love passion fruit Your cocktail looks well made, and I’m sure is delicious.
ETA: I’ll post a Mai tai recipe here as soon as I can chase it down - it’s a good one, and a little different to others I’ve enjoyed. A copy cat recipe from the Hanimale General Store on the slopes of Haleakala, a now closed but much loved and missed restaurant by Chef Beverly Gannon.
And back at ya @chienrouge ! Added a touch of the tropics to my dreary day/evening (weather wise) At least I’m working on a nice glass of wine, but I should go get a little umbrella to put in it. Cheers!
Changes in latitudes changes in attitudes @Lambchop
Love the tiki glass! Looks like T-Day prep is underway where you are - enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving!
Vietnamese coffee at home with regular 2 % milk, a splash of maple syrup and cardamom bitters.
It seems that when America awakens on Black Friday it jumps into full tilt Christmas mode. In the spirit of “if you can’t beat them, join them” I made my favorite Christmas drink, martinis.
Keeping the nice foam on your cocktails good ice that’s pro shit !
How do you make grenadine ?
I had never really thought about what grenadine was made from then I stumbled on a recipe and am kicking myself that I’ve never made it before because it is so easy and you can adjust the sweet/tart. Squeeze pomegranates (or buy pomegranate juice), heat up and add sugar and lemon. When it cools add a couple teaspoons of rose water. You can also use pomegranate syrup. I’m gonna try orgeat syrup next.
I can’t buy those luxardo cherries anymore because my teen discovered them for her mocktails and goes through them too fast - I need to find something cheaper.
