Honolulu – Recipe from the ‘Old Waldorf Bar Guide’
Two dashes Angostura Bitters
One teaspoon Lime Juice
One teaspoon Orange Juice
One jigger Tom Gin
Frappe; twist Lemon Peel on top
Ever since Europeans started visiting Hawaii it became a bit of a melting pot of different cultures, seen now as a mix of American, Chinese, Filipino, Japanese, Korean, Polynesian and Puerto Ricans, and the food culture seems to be a similar mix, in one report I found the following ‘Spam Musabi is an example of the fusion of ethnic cuisine on the islands’. I’ve never before seen the words Spam, Cuisine and ethnic in the same sentence, I can’t say that this is enticing in any way though.
Of the three drinks I suppose I should’ve started with this one, but location and availability chose what I would be drinking and when, yet again.
This isn’t bad at all, and to be fair none of the three drinks would be on my hate list, this is really a pink gin with a little fruit to add to the mix, which makes it quite tropical and almost Tiki compared with a classic pink gin, although not something I’ll be hurrying back to, and probably my least favourite of the three, but also the most tropical of the three, and I think worthy of its name.
