Here are the drinks for this month’s Tiki Tuesday at Teardrop Lounge menu.  Hope to see you tonight!

Coronado Luau Special
From the new defunct Luau Room at the Hotel del Coronado in Coronado, CA. It’s a sweet combination of Citrus, Orgeat, Dark and Light Rums, and Brandy.

Lei Lani Volcano

This drink hails from Disney’s Polynesian Village resort. A balanced sweet and sour combination of Guava, Lime, Coconut Rum and Pineapple juice is no Mickey Mouse cocktail.

Mai Tai
Trader Vic’s most famous creation, and easily the most recognized tiki drink in the world. This combination of aged Rum, Lime, Curacao and Orgeat put Trader Vic’s on the map.

Nui Nui
Don the Beachcomber’s spicy classic, with Aged Rum, Orange and Lime juices, and Don’s Spices #2, a secret only recently unearthed by Jeff “BeachBum” Berry.

Penang Afrididi #1
One of Don the Beachcomber’s earliest drinks, but made most famous at his Colonel’s Steakhouse at the International Marketplace in Hawaii. The delicate rums, and citrus create a backdrop for the Pineapple and Pastis to mingle in some amazing ways.

QB Cooler
Don’s devoted tribute to the QB flight squadron from World War I. It’s a mixture of citrus and aged rums, with Don’s signature bitters and pastis combination. Rumor has it that this was the drink that Trader Vic was trying to recreate when developing his Mai Tai.

Scorpion
Trader Vic’s tangy mix of Orange, Lemon, Rum, Brandy and Orgeat. This drink is most famous as a bowl for four, but works quite well when served for one.

Suffering Bastard
From the Sheperd’s Hotel in Cairo, where a “poor, suffering barsteward” would put this together for the British officers who frequented the establishment. It’s a tart and rich combination of Gin, Bourbon, Lime and Teardrop Lounge’s own Ginger Beer.

Test Pilot
Don the Beachcomber’s classic combination of Rum, Lime, and Falernum, with a 1-2 punch of Pastis and Bitters.

Trader Vic’s Navy Grog

Vic’s version of Donn’s classic, with a mixture of aged rums, lime, grapefruit, and allspice. A lot of depth and spice in this one.

Waikikian
A tart and refreshing mix of light and dark rums, citrus, and orange liqueur, named for the now defunct Waikikian hotel in Waikiki.

Zombie
The most infamous of all Don the Beachcomber’s creations, any more than two and you’ll be joining the living dead with this combination of tropical juices, passion fruit, and plenty of dark and light rum.
