Tiki Month Around the Web: Chemistry of the Cocktail and the Big Bamboo

Jordan Devereaux holds a special place in my heart because he is one of my most prolific commenters. He’s also an excellent blogger, one of many in the Portland, Oregon area. There is something in the water there… or maybe it’s something in the gin. I’m not sure.

At any rate, Jordan has put out several posts that are on board with Tiki Month. He offers two spice-laden drinks, the classic Test Pilot, and an original of his own, Tristan’s Trinidadian. He also gives the recipe for a delicious-sounding sour that is on the top of my list to try, the Big Bamboo, a drink once served exclusively to the Tiki-initiate at the mighty Mai-Kai in Ft. Lauderdale. I’ve been there, Jordan, just last Summer. The Mai-Kai is worth the visit.

    Aw, thanks, Doug.

    Maybe it’s all the rain that drives us to drink.

    Maybe if I win a drawing for the FL RumFest. But yeah, the Mai-Kai looks bloody epic.

    Proportions are so over……. (from my own addendum to “Shit bartenders say”)

    Guess that’s what happens when you do a last minute MxMo post. I actually did the recipe but forgot to link it to the post (& to publish the recipe to the site). Will update later today.

    Thanks again Doug!
