Show and Tell…


There’s a new site up called The Purveyor and you’ve got to check it out. It was created by a couple of mixologists in the UK with an awesome passion for cocktails. The site features a bar guide, where you can search bars in London and New York and get details and photos of the establishment. Great for city-visitors and even greater for those fortunate city-dwellers, who will learn they are always mere blocks from some of the greatest watering holes in the world. They’ve also got a pretty great recipe database which includes this little quickie—a Mai Tai you can make in less than a minute, perfect for when you’ve got thirsty party guests panting for more. Enjoy this tiki drink…it might be the last for awhile—Fall begins Monday!


The Purveyor’s Quick Mai Tai:


50ml Rum (They use Havana Club 7 yr old)

25ml Fresh Lime Juice

10ml Orange Curacao (You know I’d use Hiram Walker)

10ml Almond Syrup

5ml Gomme Syrup


Pour Rum and Lime Juice into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Add Orange Curacao, Almond Syrup, and Gomme Syrup. Shake for 1 second and strain into an Old Fashioned Glass. Garnish with a sprig of mint and a lime wedge.
