Queequeg's Harpoon

1 oz crab juice
1 oz Queequeg's blood*
1 tablespoon Boston baked beans
1/2 oz ambergris
6 oz Thomas Tew's Secret Overproof

Microwave 2 minutes, serve piping hot.

*note: Queequeg's Blood is NOT actual blood from the members of the chapter...it's the secret ingredient-for real. Once we get you hooked on the cocktail, you can buy bottles of Q.B. at hugely inflated prices! Look for it soon in the Coconut Economy!!! Also, i would suggest only HIGHEST quality Crab Juice. You may find it listed as Crab Extract...this is perfectly suitable.

No fair - Queequeg's blood AND Secret Overproof?

That's two secrets in one drink - wait three - how are you scoring the pure, uncut ambergris?

I thought we were all bros, man.

Mmm, that sounds tasty. I'll have to try one of those Friday.


We didn't make it to Friday, she is working on her second Gin Fizz at the moment and seems happy with it.

I decided to try a Mai Tai with Clement Creole Shrubb substituted for the Orange Curacao, and idea I stole from Scottes. After tasting the Shrubb I decided to increase the lime juice a bit.

The result is very good. Not a Mai Tai really but very good.

No fair, I'm a captive on the train which inexplicably has no bar car! Well no matter, I'll be mixing soon enough, and I might just have to eacalate to fog cutter strength. I will try the Mai Tai variations with the shrubb later.

OK, one hour to go, what's on your happy hour menu this evening, and where will you be enjoying your happiest hour of the week?

I gotta admit, I'm very unclear what or where I'll be enjoying this happy hour. I'm hoping we're dining on the beach, so I'll probably keep it simple (haven't found a trustworthy bartender on the beach yet), maybe a gin and tonic, or a bourbon rocks.

Last weekend I was out of town and stopped in a liquor store that had several reasonably priced spirits that I hadn't had before, so in the later part of the evening I plan to do some side by sides with my new 1792 bourbon, and Ron Abuelo Rum. I've tasted both and am pretty pleased, but need the side by side to really wrap my head around it.

I'm also experimenting with some variations on frozen whiskey sours, but I'll start that tonight, but not try it until tomorrow or Sunday.

Cheers!

I've got my end of the week mai-tai in hand and, lame as it may be, plan to spend the evening watching golf.

Generally, Friday happy hour at our house functions as a thematic prelude to a movie. For example, last week's movie was "It Came from Beneath the Sea" and the happy hour cocktail was the Octopus (Intoxica , p 61, pretty good.)

Today's movie is "The Divorcee" starring Norma Shearer. I planned to make a Clover Club, one of the cocktails
featured in the movie, but due to a culinary mishap, we're enjoying Coconaut Re-entrys. Cheers!

Gina :)

What a fun idea. Kinda like that cable show "Dinner and a Movie," but with cocktails. :thumbsup:

I was introduced to those by the novel <i>The Group</i>! Good choice, whenever you make it! :D

CaptainQ is on his way home now, and he's bringing a weekend guest, so I have a feeling we're going to be having <i>several</i>. Will report in later!

I wish I had something on the menu.
I decided to clean the bathroom during tiki hour, then I took and shower and shaved.
Time to head down to the kitchen and get something. Sadly, no rum in the house.

I like that idea of having cocktails featured in a movie.

I first tried an Old Fashioned after hearing about it in song by Ethel Merman.

The lineup so far:

1956 Zombie
CaptainQ's Navy Grog
Royal Hawaiian

We're watching 1950s classroom films now, so I'm not sure what will be up next, cocktail-wise.

Our happy hour ended up being at the Hark Rock Casino with a $14 Martini, and they actually put Vermouth in it. After I explained I wanted Gin NOT Vodka. :roll:

I wish we had our camera, although I'm not sure you can take photo's in the Casino. They have two, count 'em, two Spam slot machines. They have 2 foot tall Spam can's on top of the machines, old school blinking lights rotating around and vintage images instead of cherries and 7's. Awesome! Of course we dropped $5 and didn't win a thing.

Swizzle and I celebrated the end of the week with several rounds of Mai Tais. Tonight I think I am going to try a Dr. Funk, from "Intoxica."

We take pictures in the casinos around the slots without any problems, they usually only mind if you are near tables.

Try to avoid using the flash, it just reflects off everything.

Bar we were at tonight had 32oz Guiness for $3.50! Had a couple of those,
we're home now and I'm having a Kapu Kai. The last Kapu Kai I had was
made with Bacardi 151 which tasted like lighter fluid, and lime juice. Tonights
Kapu is made with Lemon Hart 151 ... deeeeeelicious! Buncha chicken wings
and mini drums in the oven too :fez:

Dr. Funk was too tart for my taste. The recipe called for 2.5 oz. lime juice and .5 oz. lemon. At least now I don't have to worry about scurvy.

I haven't had a drink since Tuesday. :(

When I finish up this job I'm working on though, I'm going to celebrate and have a decent cocktail or two.

Ah yes, well for some of us. Yet again H-hour is delayed so I can take care of some stupid document. At least I'm clocking some serious OT, which may come in handy soon. Well I've got a few things on the mind in the meantime, like the Nui Nui and the excellent Jet Pilot. Just made both this past week and may just have to do so again. Will report from the field later.

Me too, the liquor commission is having a "spend $120 on spirits, get a $20 gift card" sale. We came home with two gift cards. Ooops.

Off to make a Scorpion Bowl.
