    Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year!

    Holy Caldonia, another year has come and gone. And it’s been a fun one here at the Tiki Lounge, filled with friends, booze, books, laughs, hot rods and tunes.

    Here’s to a happy, healthy and swingin’ 1957! Uh, I mean 2013!

    Last Drink of the Year

    Well, here’s your last Tiki cocktail recipe for the year, and it’s a fun one…

    The Blue Whale

    I found this poking around on the net…it’s a new drink, created by Aidan Demarest, “one of L.A.’s most sought-after mixologists and the owner of Neat in Glendale”. The drink calls for vodka, but I’m betting it can be just as good…or better…with rum. Actually, I’m pretty sure this is a rum drink already…

    1 part vodka
    1 part Blue Curacao liqueur
    1 part orange juice
    1 part pineapple juice
    1 part sweet and sour mix

    Pour ingredients over ice and mix in a shaker. Strain into a Tiki glass, and serve cold.

    Well, that’s it kids! Drink up, but stay safe. And remember… like good rum and good Scotch, you only get better with age (and a high alcohol content!)

    Cheers, kids!
