Noa Noa

Another recipe from Beachbum Berry Remixed, Jeff Berry writes that the Noa Noa was a riff on the Queen's Park Swizzle. Consider me a fan on the source as well as this revision. Though the Queen's Park Swizzle would also traditionally contain several healthy dashes of Angostura bitters, the remainder of the ingredient list is pretty much identical. I recall this not being a very popular drink for those drinking through the Grog Log at the Tonga Hut in Los Angeles, but I’m not sure why. It’s a keeper to me and a fine highlight for Demerara rum - Hamilton 86 in this case.

151 Swizzle

Tribute to The Mai-Kai’s 151 Swizzle, v.1, by The Atomic Grog

This version of the venerable 151 Swizzle was the first iteration of Hurricane Hayward’s reproduction of the 151 Swizzle as served at the Mai-Kai. Through much additional research, Jim has refined the recipe to be closer in taste to the version at the Mai-Kai. But v1 reminds me of the one served at the Tiki-Ti. And hey, it’s just after 9PM on a Wednesday. To Ray!
