July Tiki Tuesday Menu

Posted by TraderTiki on July 12th, 2008 — Posted in Events, Teardrop Tiki Menu

Here’s the Tiki Tuesday at Teardrop Lounge menu for the upcoming Tiki Tuesday on July 22nd.  This one is going to be a doozy, as Daniel and myself will be back in from Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans.  Hope to see you there!

Colonel’s Big Opu
A champagne celebration for Teardrop’s First Anniversary.  This Trader Vic original of gin, lime, and Cointreau is a dandy refresher.

Colonel Beach’s Plantation Punch
A summer cooler from Don the Beachcomber.  This was served at Colonel Beach’s Plantation Beef Steak and Coffee House at the International Marketplace in Honolulu.

Hawaiian Eye
This mix of two rums, lime, and Falernum was developed by famed bartender Tony Ramos for the cast of the show “Hawiian Eye” in the early 60s.

Jet Pilot
A spicy sweet drink from The Luau in Beverly Hills.  The Luau was owned by Steven Crane, who also owned the now defunct Kon-Tiki here in Portland.

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 lightly sweet combination of aged Rum, Lime, Curacao and Orgeat put Trader Vic’s on the map.

Mexican El Diablo
A Trader Vic original with Tequila, cr鑪e de Cassis and Ginger Ale.  As the Trader says “Go easy on this one because it’s tough on your running board”.

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.

Pequod Punch Bowl
A Beachbum Berry original featuring tea and rum.  A real whale-chaser of a drink, best shared with fellow adventure-seekers.

Rum Pot
Trader Vic’s sweet and complex original, recently unearthed for Tales of the Cocktail 2008.

Test Pilot
Don the Beachcomber’s original classic.  A balanced mix of rum, lime, cointreau, and Don’s 1-2 punch of bitters and Pastis.

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 rums.
