DONGA PUNCH - 45ml/1.5oz Aged Martinique Agricole Rhum - 45ml/1.5oz Don's Mix* - 22,5ml/0.75oz Lime Juice - - - - - HOW: Shake all with crushed ice / Dirty dump / Top up with ice / Garnish. /// *Don's Mix = 2 parts Grapefruit Juice to 1 part Cinnamon Syrup. - - - - - The recipe of the 'Donga Punch', originally by Don The Beachcomber, almost got lost in the annals of history if it wasn't for Jeff 'Beachbum' Berry. ❤️😩 The legendary Tiki Historian (and owner of Latitude 29 🗿 ) revived it from a 1937 notebook of original Don the Beachcomber recipes, as kept by bartender Ricardo 'Dick' Santiago 🌴. . The Donga Punch is one of the few classic 'Tiki drinks' (even tho Don The Beachcomber rather called them Rum Rhapsodies 🥃 ), that uses a mere 3 ingredients (Well, ok, technically four, since the Don's Mix consists of 2 ), disproving the prejudices of Tiki always requiring 'impossibly long lists of ingredients' 🍹. . It's one of my favorite drinks to make when I want to introduce people into the use and aromatics of 'Aged Agricole Rhum' 🥰 (and hand them a recipe they can make themselves! ) ❤️ Drinkstagram, do you own Aged Agricole? Do you enjoy it? Got a fav? - - - - - #donthebeachcomber #agricole #rhumagricole #rumpunch #rhumclement #rhumvieux #beachbumberry #tikicocktail #mixologyguide #cocktails

I think “best of” depends not only on the item itself but also the ambiance, view, service & company. On the Big Island I agree that this is one of the best places to enjoy a memorable Mai Tai. @royalkonaresort #DonTheBeachcomber

Tried our hand at a Gold Cup. Donn claims that this was Marlene Dietrich’s favorite cocktail of his in the 1930’s, though his menus from that time only show a Beachcombers Gold. Just another story from Donn we need to take with a grain of salt... ; )

“As we crossed Diamond Head we came very close to shore en route to Honolulu to dock. It was like a wet blanket of flowers. In all these years, I’ve never forgotten. Every time I smell plumeria any place in the world it all comes back to me in glorious Technicolor.” - Donn Beach

Introducing this week our next #classiccocktailofthweek the”Fog Cutter”! We are super excited to be able to serve you this baby in exclusivity this week at #lobsterbarhk ! #fogcutter #Havana3yrsrum , #martellvsopcognac , #beefeatergin , fresh #lemonjuice , fresh #orangejuice , #orgeatsyrup , #creamsherry . - The Fog Cutter is a classic #tikicocktail popularized by the legendary Trader Vic—though it is occasionally credited to the other father of tiki, Don the Beachcomber. A heavy-set cocktail with a base of rum, gin and brandy, it is surprisingly sippable. Orange and lemon juices lend the drink a citrusy vibrancy, while orgeat and a sherry float round the drink out with a mellow nuttiness. Though it is traditionally served in a Fog Cutter mug, any tiki mug will do as long as it’s garnished extravagantly and drunk from jubilantly. But do be cautious about how many of these you consume. As #TraderVic commented in his Bartender’s Guide (1972 ), “Fog Cutter, hell. After two of these, you won’t even see the stuff.” - 15 ml Havana 3yrs rum 20 ml cognac 20 ml orange juice 15 ml gin 15 ml lemon juice 15 ml orgeat syrup 7 ml cream sherry Method: Shake and strain Glass: Old fashioned. Garnish: Float of cream sherry.

Tahitian Rum Punch, c.1934 from Don the Beachcomber. Grapefruit, orange, pineapple, and lime with white Puerto Rican and gold Jamaican, white wine, creme de banane, brown sugar and vanilla extract. It definitely has the DNA of a Donn Beach drink, strong, not too sweet and balanced, with some good nuance from the creme de banane and vanilla. Still seems like a sort of rough draft of wonderful things to come later. which, being from 1934, it was. #donthebeachcomber #tahitianrumpunch #tiki #prototiki #tikidrink #tikidrinks #tikihomebar #intoxica

Have you heard of @smuggledbysoberon ? 🍹 It's a side account of mine where I'm posting all 119 recipes featured in the @SmugglersCoveSF Cocktail Book 🌴. . In March 2019 I took on the challenge to recreate all those drinks, and in June 2019, a mere 4 months later, I shook up the last! 🔥 Right now, I'm busy posting them all, but writing informative texts to accompany the recipes has proven to be quite a challenge, next to maintaining this page, having a fulltime job and raising a kid 🤪. . Soooo it's going a bit slower than expected, but that means that if you start following the journey now, you haven't missed THAT much yet! 😁 And if you're remotely interested in Rum and Tiki history 🗿 I promise you it'll be worth your while! ❤️ Drinkstagram, cheers! - - - - - - LEFT: Don The Beachcomber's Navy Grog - RIGHT: Trader Vic's Navy Grog - - - - - #navygrog #smugglerscove #tikibar #tradervics #donthebeachcomber #tikiculture #tikitiki #cocktailrecipes #rumpunch #rumlovers #cocktailsforyou #mixologyguide #bestcocktails #maitai #cocktailhistory #homebartender

#TikiTuesday time! This is the Missionary’s Downfall This tiki classic dates back to 1940 and was created by Don The Beachcomber. This tastes too good to be a cocktail. It’s like a healthy mint and pineapple smoothie but with booze and it’s actually light on the booze. This doesn’t require anything fancy. Just a blender. Definitely try this one if you haven’t already! •••• 1 oz Cruzan Aged Light Rum 1 oz Honey Syrup 1/2 oz Apricot Liqueur (peach in original ) 1/2 oz Fresh Lime Juice 2 oz Fresh Pineapple Chunks 2 oz Fresh Mint tight packed 6 oz Crushed Ice ••• Blend all ingredients in a blender for 20 seconds. Pour into a cocktail glass and try not to drink it within 2 mins.

PORT LIGHT 2.0 - 60ml/2oz Makers Mark 101 Bourbon - 30ml/1oz Lemon Juice - 15ml/0.5oz Oat-geat / Orgoat / Oat milk Orgeat - 10ml/0.33oz Passionfruit Syrup - 1 eggwhite. - - - - - HOW: Shake all HARD with crushed ice / Dirty dump / Garnish abundantly! - - - - - Not much to say today ❤️ first week of 'live teaching' since March really kicked my ass and made me realize that my Mono/Glandular Fever either left quite some traces or just isn't over yet. 😣 It kicked my ass. . Today's drink is a simple riff on the classic Port Light. ⚓️ The Oat Milk Orgeat was just a spontaneous idea. I often make 'Lazy Orgeat' with Almond Milk and Sugar 🍹 so why not try the same with Oat Milk? Texture is RAD AF, so creamy. 😍 And the pairing with Bourbon was mad. . 10/10 would drink again. 🥃 That's it for today. ❤️ Drinksta, stay cool! - - - - - #tikicocktail #donthebeachcomber #tradervics #classiccocktails #bourbonlover #makersmark #orgeat #garnishgame #tikilover #cocktailculture

The Breezeway, as it was lit for our music video (link in profile ~ almost 3k views! ). Note the two chairs from Frankie's Tiki Room in Vegas, originally carved by our buddy, Buzzy. The other chairs are from Don the Beachcomber. I knew that I wanted the Frankie's chairs in those spots because the camera was to pass through that isle... I don't know if you can see them in the final video though? The barstool is vintage Witco.
