FI Runner Up, Mrs. Howell’s Spicy Side

Posted by TraderTiki on October 7th, 2008 — Posted in Drinks, Events, Recipes, Rum, Tiki Drinks

The fourth and final runner up of the Forbidden Island Cocktail Contest, Mrs. Howell’s Spicy Side, by JenTiki! This drink is on the menu at Forbidden Island from now through November!  This one’s a sweet little number I like to think of as the best spicy lemonade I’ve ever had.  Truly, so the saying goes, eminently quaffable. Cheers to the runner up!

After a few full reads of Sippin’ Safari, tonight was the night to syrup the night away!

Still having a few of the leavings from Tiki Kon V, I was ready to mix, boil, muddle and strain. Good thing is, I only had a few things to do!

So, now with Vanilla Syrup, Donn’s Mix, Donn’s Spices #2, Cinnamon Syrup, Pimento Dram (a bit immature still), and Hanalei House mix, I am ready for my own personal Sippin’ Safari!

Blair, ready for a safari

The first adventure began tonight. Well, almost. It began with an awful stumble. Too late into the night, and weary from the syrups, I mixed a rather off Nui Nui. I’ll just say this. Mason Jars, while fine for storing, are no pouring devices. Still, a lot of the flavors coming out in it are new and exciting. I do believe, however, this will have to be explored much more thoroughly. Perhaps even nightly.

It tears me I won’t be able to make it to San Diego for Tiki Oasis. Oh well.

Our own adventures await!
