I am, here is a nice tiki drink from the Hukilau Room of the Captains
Inn in Long Beach circa 1962.
Here is a picture of their menu online.
I haven't quiet perfected my ice shell skills but here it is.
¾ oz fresh lime juice
¾ oz sugar syrup
½ oz maraschino liqueur
1 ½ oz gold Jamaican rum
1 tsp Pernod
3 drops almond extract
Shake well with ice cubes and strain into a saucer champagne glass.
This was originally served with an "ice shell" forming a hood over
It's a little sweet like most tiki drinks I've had, but the
combination of flavors keep it interesting. I'm going to continue to
make some tiki drinks so I can work on my garnishing and ice forming.
