Drinks of Tiki Kon V

Posted by TraderTiki on August 13th, 2007 — Posted in Bilge

Here’s a list of recipes from Tiki Kon V! Guests got these down their gullet by the bucketload at my home bar during the weekend. Well, not literally a bucket, but each handcrafted with care. The only time a bucket was used (two buckets!) was when Mrs. Trader and I got hitched. Two 5 gallon buckets, one of Lei Lani Volcano, the other of Coronado Luau special. They were good. Strangely good for something that came out of a bucket. The alcohol mixed in so well, guests were adding their own from flasks. It was a very, very good wedding.

And now, the drinks!
