Tiki Time

It's damn hot tonight, so after taking the dog for a walk, I decided it was time for a nice tiki blender drink. It's hard to find good recipes for these things; mostly you end up with sickly-sweet messes of fruit juice, pineapple chunks, and rum.

Fortunately, I've found a couple of tiki sites that have much better recipes -- ones with actual complex flavors and interesting combinations. Tonight's drink was from a recipe round-up on one of them, Kaiser Penguin:

Scorpion from Steve Crane’s Luau, 1958

  • 1 oz lime juice
  • 2 oz orange juice
  • 2 oz gold Puerto Rican rum
  • 2 oz gin
  • 1 oz brandy
  • 3/4 oz simple syrup
  • 1 oz orgeat syrup
  • 8 oz crushed ice

Add it all into a blender, and mix until it's more or less smooth. The original recipe claimed "for 3 seconds", but that didn't really seem like enough in my sad little blender.

It's delicious.

I need to try some of the other recipes on that page soon.
