Did any of you know that it’s National Daiquiri Day today?
This recipe is the original from the La Floridita Bar down in Cuba that made the drink for Ernest Hemingway. Double this recipe and make it a Papa Doble just like he used to enjoy.
1 oz Grilled Pineapple Juice
1 oz Simple Syrup
.5 oz Lemon
Grilled Pineapple and Pineapple leaf for garnish
How might one “grill” pineapple juice?
Not really. We just don't go to places like Applebees because the food is terrible and overpriced, and that's backed up by tons of online reviews stating such.
Besides, if I'm travelling, I'd want to try local places over franchises I can eat at anytime I want to, back home. That in particular doesn't seem like something particular to millenials.
To go along with your traveling and wanting to try local places I could not agree more. It pains me to see people in Applebee’s at Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco or the Olive Garden in Times Square. I want to run in there and yell and scream at them and drag them out to a good local establishment.
Watch out for P.A.G.A.N.
The boys have their goat leggings at the ready to rescue me if needed. 😀 https://i.imgur.com/xPATsrg.jpg
Using one of the Liber & Co. recipes I found on their website for a riff on the Mai Tai. I have no vested interest in these guys but enjoy using their syrups where I don’t want to invest the time in making them myself.
Instead of the individual aged rums I instead used the Denizen Merchant’s Reserve which blends the two together already for Mai Tais.
Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice and shake for 10 seconds.
Strain into a chilled rocks glass filled with crushed ice.
Garnish with mint sprig from out back and Luxardo cherries.
Oooh cool idea, might be good sans vodka for a pregnant person I know!
I might go rum myself...though I guess that’s not very Swedish.
I had rum in Sweden so I say go for it. 🇸🇪
From the IKEA collection of cocktails. 😀
Pour the Lingonberry syrup in the bottom of a glass then fill with crushed ice. Pour in lime juice and Vodka and stir to combine. Add more crushed ice and pour in Ginger Beer to the top.
So not really a tiki bar but more a burlesque kind of dive bar/hamburger place in Atlanta but they had this drink and incredibly good mug. $30 for the drink and mug and while not cheap it’s on par with say Trader Sam’s at Disney and this mug is better than any mug they have (and I’ve bought them all.) I think the drink they were going for here was a Zombie though more of the spiced/coconut flavor versus the traditional. Either way it was pretty potent and tasted good.
How pineapply is the Pineapple syrup?
Not overpowering. It’s more sweet than pineapple in my opinion. You could get very close to the same effect with pineapple juice and a 2:1 rock candy syrup.
Okay, I could make my own then I think. Cool. Thank you !
For the most part you could. They have Gum Arabic as an ingredient to be an emulsifier which goes towards mouth feel. I think if you do pineapple juice and 2:1 simple syrup to where it’s 60% juice in the final product you’d be 95%+ there.

Am I the only person who dislikes Carpano Antica? I bought a bottle because it’s the “best.” Then I made a ton of drinks with it. Two bottles worth and didn’t really like any of them. Then I decided that maybe i just don’t like vermouth very much. Then I discovered Cocci and punt e mes, and realized the problem might be the carpano? What am I missing?
Just different tastes I’m sure is all it is.
Where do you get those cherries? What’s it called?
They’re Luxardo cherries. You can get them on Amazon for sure and in some decent liquor stores for around $16 a jar.
Another recipe from Liber & Co. as I keep working my way through their syrups and came back to the Pineapple Gum.
Muddle mint and syrup in a highball glass
Add rum, lime and crushed ice
Swizzle with crushed ice for 15 seconds
Refill with crushed ice and top with bitters
Are you The Great Cornholio?
No but they need TP for their bunghole.
I stopped by a liquor store nearby and got some of the Liber cordial and a bottle of St. George botanivore today. I made this when I got home, although not blended, and it's great! Tastes pretty much just like a negroni with a little more body to it. I love it!
Had I taken that picture about two minutes later the ice would have separated out from the liquid so your way is pretty much how I drank it anyways. I would love to get an industrial drink ice machine but obviously can’t justify that for the home.
Yeah we have the Liber pineapple and the passion fruit one at my bar and they don’t have alcohol. My only gripe is that the passion fruit syrup can be very overpowering and sweet. I try to use it sparingly.
I’ve found that overpowering is with any Passionfruit syrup. The Coco Réal stuff is even more powerful than the Liber from what I’ve experienced. I always tell myself to cut back by half the Passionfruit syrups and I always forget to do it.
Thanks Obama. 😀
Where did you get that glass from?
I picked them up at the Co-Op at Disney Springs down in Orlando a while back. The also had ones with Shrunken Ned Jungle Witch Doctor from Disneyland. They used to be available on the ShopDisneyParks app but they no longer appear there unfortunately.
Your air plant (I think?) needs some love.
He does and we’re working on it. The summer here is crappy and haven’t been able to get it right so far.
waiting in line for any attraction must be brutal rn
I just randomly looked at wait times today and was thinking those are really good times for a Friday during the summer, let alone a holiday week. Now I know why they were so short.
We climb the highest mountains, just to get a better view.
There's still one in Lake Buena Vista. But not for much longer I think.
That is correct. That whole strip mall will be torn down soon as part of the I-4 Ultimate project.
Is it a Daiquiri? Is it a Hurricane? Why not a hybrid? The recipe comes from Liber & Co. who make the syrup I used in this one.
Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice and shake.
Strain into a chilled glass and garnish with some sort of flower.
Tropical Passion Fruit Syrup

Is that just "normal" passion fruit syrup or something extra added?
It’s just what Liber & Co. calls their passionfruit syrup.
As I’m playing around with the various Liber & Co. recipes I decided to tinker a little bit with their Amaretto Sour recipe. All you all in /r/tiki suggested that this Macadamia Nut liqueur could be substituted for Amaretto so I tried it out. It’s pretty damn good and could be a really good drink on a cold night.
Add everything to a cocktail shaker with ice and...shake (did you think I was going to say stir?)
Strain over fresh ice in a rocks glass and garnish with Luxardo cherries.

That’s pretty accurate and sometimes doubled in the evenings.
15+ years ago I lived in Decatur and for a few months had a project in Norcross and it was always an hour plus minimum. There was no good way to get there between the two unfortunately. Going out to 285 and coming north caught the usual morning traffic across the top end. Taking surface streets to 85 was slow and then you still had to deal with parts of 285. The best route I found was going into downtown and taking the Connector north to 85 to 400 to the light traffic side of 285 (which would get you to Perimeter Mall) and then north from there.
Almost always these were an hour plus in length and usually worse in the evenings. And heaven forbid if there’s an accident or something stupid causing backups.
I still remember Crash Clark doing the traffic report one day when it was really bad in Brookhaven because of Bare Ass Haulin’ (streakers at Oglethorpe) and just down the street a Bear Haulin’ Ass (bear lost in the city from up north that hadn’t been caught yet.)
Try to find Henry McKenna. I sell it for $32 and I think it's a steal. According to the people tasting it at the last spirits competition they agreed. They said it was the best bourbon around, at least for a minute.
Shut your mouth right now. McKenna is swill and nobody should buy it. 😉 /s
Nice shot. Love Pop Century. Best value resort IMO
I would expect once the Skyliner is finished they will move Pop up to the Moderate level. They returned the rooms, changed to queen sized beds, and added coffee makers.
I was thinking this as well, but then I heard they are renovating the All Star rooms as well. Do you know if the All Star renovation is going to be different than Pop's layout?
Possibly staying with full size beds and not the bathroom updates.
Speaking of bathroom updates we switched over the French Quarter from Pop this last trip. They had the renovated rooms though not the pull down queen Murphy Bed and their bathrooms were still the older and less functional style when compared to Pop.
If Pop would add a water slide to the main pool we’d have everything we liked about POFQ and more short of the boat to the Springs...which didn’t run too much when we wanted it while we were there because of storms.
Either this was taken right where the parade steps off in Frontierland or it wasn’t so terribly swamp ass hot today. We were at the parade a couple of weeks back and Rapunzel was soaked all the way through on her back though she was still smiling away.
It was December so not hot
Ah, the 2 month period where Florida is inhabitable...and that’s coming from a native Floridian Cracker. 😀
