Aloha friends who are hanging out at home!

How’s everyone doing?

Anyone have a list of easy ingredient drinks? I can only continue to put umbrellas in a rum and coke for so long.

Also, much like everyone else, it’s only been a week and I’m already missing the hangouts and tiki fam hangs. Anyone have solutions for social distance approved hangs?

Stock up on limes before isolating at home. At the very least you can make the basic Tiki cocktail Daiquiri. It might be fun to make them out of different rums you have on hand to see the difference in taste.

Most of us have tiki basics at home

Easy ingredient drinks to wean you off of Rum & Coke(tm). I assume you don't have sour mix, or exotic liquors like triple sec.

Start with:
Cuba Libre'
2oz Havana style rum
4oz Cane sugar cola beveridge
1/2 Key West Lime
(substitute as close as you can)

Pain Killer
2oz navy style rum
4oz pineapple juice (fairly common at grocery stores, near the cranberry juice)
1oz cream of coconut (also common at grocery stores, near the Mexican food)
1oz orange juice (in the refrigerator case, use Tang if you can't find it)
Add ice and Shake the ingredients (or mix with a blender)

No one knows what the grocery store or shelter-in-place situation will be like. You can always freeze some of the fresh citrus juices in ice cube trays, and store in the freezer for later. That way if you can't get out, at least you have access to decent lime juice.

Also, a Rum Old Fashioned or Rum Manhattan can be tasty, and takes limited fresh ingredients.

The Tongariki in Atlanta, are at going to attempt some sort of virtual happy hour this weekend.

The Velveteen Lounge Kitsch-en YouTube and Facebook channel had a shelter in place live show last night. Subscribe to the channel. Watch the rebroadcast. Etc. Next week, it is cocktails when you are out of base spirits and top shelf liquor. (Check out the pilot episode Bombed in the Bomb Shelter.)

Pick up the bottled clam juice and powdered drink mix that is still in the store. You'll wish you had as we get closer to Tang and Graves high balls.

Hey but on a positive note, if they found a way during prohibition, we can too!

Don't forget the playlist! Lots of good exotica on youtube - I'm sure it's all highly illegal. Here's a nice mix - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OkbDfhCrWPg

Though I hate Alexa, if you use one, tell her to play Martin Denny Radio on Pandora. Lots of good tunes there.

Or just bluetooth your speakers to your iPad/phone/laptop and tune in Pandora there.

Great ideas and suggestions! I really like the idea of virtual hangouts and trying to bring the tiki while still doing social distancing.

Thanks everyone!

Tokixof, welcome to the islands of the FOM! Ditto to the suggestions posted, especially stocking up on limes.

In addition to making cocktails, why not make tikis? This is a great time to grab some scrap wood and carve a tiki. If you don't yet have a home bar, get started on one! If you do, I know you have projects you'd like to tackle - home bars are never finished, really. Lamps, paintings, picture frames... the sky is the limit.

Lastly, don't forget to polish your collection of cocktail tunes. Exotica, surf, lounge, whatever makes you thirsty.

This is surely a shitty time, but the stress and isolation is food for creativity. Have fun, and stay safe!

Hello Professor!

Interesting that you bring up a home bar. I’ve been doing a ton of daydreaming on that front.

Is there a style guide or a general list of helpful hints to put a home tiki bar together?

Also great idea on carving. Anyone have a spare tree I could borrow?

The FOM Test Labs has some very specific specifications and style guides for home bars in FOM-SPEC-55-2, 2020 edition. Table V-II has a list of tips and helpful hints, which while not required by the specification, may be accepted by the Authority Having Jurisdiction as an alternate means to meet a performance requirements of the Code.

Here are the unredacted ones:

1. A flat horizontal surface impervious to moisture self that is extinguishing not subject to deflagration in normal atmospheric conditions.
2. Space to store at least two bottles with a capacity of 750ml or greater.
3. A flat horizontal surface that does not shift though time or space in mid pour (they put this one in for Chip)
4. Sufficient illumination to discern the difference between a 750ml bottle of rum from a 1 quart bottle of tiki torch fluid (we won't name names here)
5. Sufficient darkness that all challenge coins look like chocolate gilt coins unitil you bite them.

If you want one, I have some nice dry oak logs.

I did have a few daiquiris, too. Thanks for the suggestion on the hurricanes!

It’s been. Days. Weeks. Months. Time has lost all meaning.

I did get a couple white grapefruits and have plans on making SOMETHING this week.

How’s everyone doing with the whole TFH situation? Everyone stocked on rum, TP, and Martin Denny albums?

I wish I could find non-red grapefruit. Living on limes and lemons.

The hibiscus liqueur has run out. The demerara sugar is gone and then syrup is dwindling. The rum holds out thanks to a handle of bacardi to be filler. But the Appleton estate signature is looking grim. I'm not sure it will last the week.

Rum is still very, very well-stocked.

Limes are a constant resupply effort. As is pineapple juice.

Falernum, orgeat, allspice dram are all holding up.

I should be good for a while.

Personal Statement: I'm pro-metric.
There's always been plenty of rum at my house, although I tend not to drink too much of it. I'm too lazy to make proper tiki drinks at home. If it's a decent enough rum, I'll drink it neat or on the rocks. I have been drinking a lot of gin, red wine, and rye though.

Thankfully, grocery delivery has been decent, and we get limes that way.

The husband did stock up on Trader Vic's Grog Mix, when that went on sale a few weeks ago. He's been using that for drinks, and he even likes mixing it with soda water.

One of the liquor stores nearby, allows online ordering and curbside pick up. So that's been helpful, with at least keeping my stock of booze. There was plenty to begin with, but I like having variety.
