June Tiki Tuesday menu

Posted by TraderTiki on June 14th, 2008 — Posted in Events, Teardrop Tiki Menu

Hey there folks,

between the new batch of bitters, some improvements on the Galley, and a super secret project that will never see the light of day, it’s been busy times here for the Trader.

Nonetheless, let the good times commence this upcoming Tuesday at Teardrop Lounge! This is going to be a good one!

Captain’s Grog
From the Captain’s Inn, Long Beach, CA, circa 1962. This dirnk features a blend of dark and light rums, Falernum, citrus, and a rather surprising sweetener.

Chilled Coffee and tropical rum make up this libation developed by Don the Beachcomber in the early 1930s.

Jasper’s Jamaican
Let this Spicy Carribean classic take you back to the days when Jasper LeFranc tended bar at the Bay Roc in Montego Bay.

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.

Kava Bowl
Trader Vic’s classic bowl, featuring Haitian Rum, orgeat, and a bounty of citrus.

La Florida
A complex classic by famed Cuban bartender, Constantine Ribailagua.

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.

A mix of Haitian Rum, tropical spices and fresh juices. Don the Beachcomber served the last of these in 1941.

Wisdom of Pelé
A Trader Tiki original, inspired by the rich rums of Guyana. This sucker’s a “limit one”, so keep your head up, ‘lest you learn Pelé’s lesson.

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.

The wife and I shared a Kava Bowl in a big volcano bowl, and high-fived each other when we finished it off! And we high-fived again at home when I looked at the recipe that says “serves 4-6 people”! Then we nodded off…
