Announcing the new Tommy O’s Cocktail menu

Posted by TraderTiki on December 3rd, 2008 — Posted in Bilge, Events

if you haven’t noticed, it’s been a bit quieter around these parts lately.  Nothing but the internet version of tumbleweeds rolling across the screen.  Well, my apologies for that, it’s been quite a bit busy here at Trader Tiki headquarters.  So I’m sure you’re wondering, in your dreams and during the day, just WHAT have I been up to? (and seriously, if you’ve had any Trader Tiki related dreams, don’t blame me, blame the Rum!)

Lately, I’ve been working on a cocktail consulting project, where I was able to assist my friend David with menu and ingredient development for a new restaurant location.  After many weeks of work, today, I’m beyond pleased to announce the Grand Opening of Tommy O’s in Camas, WA on Friday, December 5th!

If you’ve ever been to Tommy O’s in downtown Vancouver, you know the quality of the food and service to be barnone.   The cocktail menu though, maybe not so much.  The drinks were decent, but a bit behind the times.  Well, times have changed, and the cocktail menu for the Camas restaurant is now robust with cocktail classics, and bold new drinks, and a few seasonal delights.  Beyond the standard cocktail menu, the bar staff is armed with 30 classic and modern drinks to please any palate.  If you thought that was enough, the bartenders are also being trained in classic technique, stirring and shaking and jiggering, taught by one of the best bartenders I know, David Shenaut of Teardrop Lounge.

Here’s a look at the new cocktail menu.

Daiquiri
Rum, Lime, and Gomme Syrup

Kokio Blossom
Vodka, St Germaine Elderflower Liqueur, Lemon and Egg White, garnished with a Housemade Hibiscus Tincture

Liliko’i Margarita
Tequila, Chambord, Passion Fruit, Freshly made sour mix, and a Li Hing Mui rim

Macadamia Manhattan
Rye, Sweet Vermouth, and Housemade Macadamia Bitters

Martinez
Gin, Sweet Vermouth, Maraschino Liqueur, Orange Bitters, garnished with Lemon Zest

Old Wood
Dry Fly Gin, Chartreuse, Sweet Vermouth and Campari.  Misted with a Flamed Housemade Old Wood bitters

Spice Tonic
A Housemade Tonic made for winter weather, served with your choice of base spirit.

Tommy O’s Mai Tai
A blend of aged rums, Lime, Curacao, Orgeat, and Falernum.

Hot Buttered Rum
Cider, Rum, and Housemade Hot Buttered Rum Batter

Zombie
Lime, Lemon, Pineapple, Passionfruit, Bitters, and a blend of three aged rums.

You may be able to point out a few particular points of influence I had there.  Yes, the Mai Tai is branded.  Changing the name of a classic to suit a recipe tweak is fine by me.  Feel absolutely free to order it Trader Vic style.

The new Tommy O’s is located in Camas, Washington, at SE 34th and SE 192nd.  Hope to see you there sometime!
