Finally got to check out Smuggler’s Cove, a tiki bar in SF. Had a blast with my friends pre-partying but I think I like LA tiki bars more ;) #shiny #tikidrinksrule #golddress #canon5dmarkii

Carrying on an old fashioned Thanksgiving with the new addition of an old school spirit. In the past, I’ve enjoyed Bully Boy rum and am looking forward to trying their Hub Punch. Plus the relatives are here and I’m thankful that I’ve got something to do but chat. #bullyboydistillers #rum #rhum #tikidrinksrule

Whether you are looking for the ever popular New England Style IPAs or a big bold dark beer, we’ve got you covered. Local IPAs include the notorious G-Bot from NEBCO, as well as Relic’s new beer “The Cocoon” the latter is a mango filled delight, on the lighter side in terms of body but not in terms of flavor. GBot is a great citrus bitter double. This year’s release of Plank’d from Avery, a Imperial coconut porter aged in rum barrels, is rich, bold, chocolaty, toasted coconuty, delectable goodness in a bottle. The 25th anniversary beer is a dark ale aged in oak with honey dates and raisins which really highlights the dark fruity character of its style. All amazing brews to give a try!

Did my daiquiri’s yesterday for National Daiquiri Day. Couldn’t find an excuse to try my latest acquisition so I’ll just call it New Rum I Haven’t Tried Day. From Connecticut it’s Waypoint Spirits Man Overboard spiced rum. The back label suggests drink it “submerged” in a rum and cola, so I guess I’m “down” with that. #rum #rhum #dbdistillery #waypointspirits #tikidrinksrule

Desert brings a baba au rhum w/ my new acquisition of Cana Brava. Do I consider this a Panama rum or California rum. Could I count this on my on my 50 state acquisition or do I need to find one distilled in Cali itself. Either way, rum rules. #rum #canabravarum #panamanianrum #donpanchorhum #tikidrinksrule

Just completed my quest to find a rum/rums for each New England state. Filled in my last state with a Mad River Distillers rum from Vermont. The nose has the distinct character of the sherry cask and a subtle sweetness on the palate like a fine PX. Now onto fifty rums from fifty states. #rum #madriverdistillers #tikidrinksrule

Not so sweet this time! I must have done something wrong last time, Like maybe I used a sweetened Lime Juice and today I had to go buy a unsweetened one. My second attempt at a Sugar Cane Magik and I don't think I need to go find insulin this time around. #rum #rumsogooditsevil #rumsogood #limejuice #orgeatsyrup #tikibar #tikidrinks #tikidrink #tikidrinksrule #libation #liquidtherapy #drinks #drinkpics #drinks🍹 #drinkstagram #instadrinks #homebar #homebartender #alcoholicdrink #mixdrinks #mixology #mixologist #alcohol #booze #cheers #liquor #drinkporn🍹 #drinkporn #liquidvacation #gintoniclicious

After much aggravation finding Guava Nectar I am finally able to make a Murky Lagoon. This was an easy recipe and came out rather strong, The room mate thinks more Guava Nectar is required because the rum was too strong. Also, I don't like the smell of Falernum. 🤢☠😖 #murkylagoon #cheers #drinks #drinkpics #drinkstagram #instadrinks #alcoholicdrink #alcoholic #alcohol #alcoholicdrinks #rum #rumsogood #rumsogooditsevil #falernum #guavanectar #booze #gintoniclicious #gintonic #darkrum #homebar #homebartender #malibublackrum #mixdrinks #mixologist #mixology #tikidrinksrule #tikidrink #tikidrinks #liquor #drinkporn

I planned to try a Lapu Lapu and a Murky Lagoon this night but all the grocery stores and Liquor stores we went to somehow did not have Guava Nectar or Passion Fruit Syrup. Instead I tried to make a Kahiki Kai and I almost got the dark rum to float....maybe next time. #drinks #drinkpics #drinkstagram #mixologist #mixology #tikidrinksrule #tikidrink #tikidrinks #booze #cheers #liquor #alcoholic #alcohol #alcoholicdrink #drinkporn #instadrinks #rum #bananaliquer #cremedebanana #rumsogood #rumsogooditsevil #maliburum #homebar #homebartender #gintonic #gintoniclicious #drink #drinks #liquidvacation

So another shot at The Banana Batida but this time with an actual Banana Rum. Had to use Ron Diaz because my nearest alcohol vendor does not carry nor will they order Malibu Banana Rum. Never the less, This concoction tastes way better than the the previous attempt........now I'm all out of bananas. #bananabatida #bananarum #rum #rondiazrum #rondiaz #cheers #booze #drinks #mixology #mixologist #homebartender #homebar #gintoniclicious #gintonic #drinkstagram #drinkpics #drinkporn #tikidrinks #tikidrink #liquor #tikidrinksrule #alcoholicdrinks #alcohol #alcoholicdrink #mixdrinks #instadrinks #rumsogood #rumsogooditsevil #liquidvacation

So I found this recipe on You tube called Sugar Cane Magik. I tried to make it at home with the ingredients I already have. Mainly with Malibu Black Rum instead of a 30 dollar bottle of Ron Zacapa Solera 23. Not sure if this thing is suppose be this sweet. I'm probably diabetic now.........DIABEETUS #mixology #mixdrinks #mixologist #gintoniclicious #booze #cheers #alcohol #alcoholicdrinks #tikidrinks #orgeatsyrup #limejuice #rum #tikidrinksrule #gintonic #homebartender #homebar #cocktails #instadrinks #drinkstagram #drinkpics #drinkporn #drinks #drink #sugarcanemagik #malibublackrum #maliburum #liquor #rumsogooditsevil #rumsogood

So tonight I experimented with a new drink. Banana Batida, made with Cachaca Rum. I didn't like the Cachaca Rum so I tried it again using Drillaud Banana Creme Liqueur instead of Cachaca and then switched to condensed coconut milk mainly because of my Vegan roommate. She enlightened me that Malibu makes a Banana Rum and yet I haven't seen it sold anywhere so I guess I'm making a special order next time. #bananabatida #booze #instadrinks #drinkstagram #homebar #homebartender #alcohol #mixology #mixdrinks #gintonic #gintoniclicious #bananaliquer #cremedebanana #cheers #drinkporn #tikidrinks #tikidrinksrule #drink #alcoholicdrink #cocktails

Today's concoction, Pina Colada. This Coco Real stuff is way too sweet for me. I'm probably going to cut it down to 1/2 part. Not sure if this will make me sleepy or hyper.

Adios Don Pancho, for now. Made a Cuban inspired dinner, black bean soup, steak with plantain “ tater tots “ and on to dessert, rum cake. The only way to finish is Don Pancho 30yr. Alas no Cuban cigars here in the USA. Time for a road trip for such extras. #rum #donpanchorum #panamanianrum #tikidrinksrule

Rum, one of the Caribbean’s greatest contributions to this planet. Here we have a bottle from Brugal(left) made from molasses in the Dominican Republic. With only 613 barrels made, it is aged in both ex-bourbon and ex-sherry barrels. The other is the Clement Rhum Agricole(right). The difference here is that Rhum Agricole is made from sugar cane juice. Similar prices, different styles. Both are incredible spirits. 🥃🌴 #rum #rhumagricole #brugal #clement #rhum #drinkmorerum #spirits #brownspirits #barrelaged #rumbarrel #beerstore #beershop #wineandspirits #liquorstore #packagestore #hamdenct #wineshop #bottleshop #wine #beer #tikidrinksrule

 #KnowYourTikiCocktail #WahKnowsTiki Have you ever wondered how the Mai Tai cocktail received its name? Invented by Trader Vic himself in 1944, it was named "Mai Tai” after his Tahitian guest, who enthusiastically claimed it as "the best!" in Tahitian. Though there are many variations all over the world, the original Trader Vic's Mai Tai mix is a heavily guarded secret with not many knowing its true ingredients.

Fortunate, our very own Tiki Master at #WahtikiHK, Mr Shi Wah Lee is one of the lucky few to have learned the Mai Tai mix recipe from Trader Vics back in the 70s! Sounds exciting? Yes! Today, he sources the right ingredients to recreate the original Mai Tai mix without any preservatives and we are all lucky enough to have the chance to taste the authentic Mai Tai in Hong Kong just like it was first created!

Is time to celebrate Mai Tai Mondays! 2for1 Mai Tais every Monday from 4pm till late.

 #KnowYourTikiDrinks #WahKnowsTiki Jigger OR Free Pour? “Many bartenders out there have become over focused on looking “cool” and “artistic” nowadays; one of the biggest mistakes I see bartenders make is free-pouring when making classic or complex cocktails,” says our Tiki Master, Mr. Shi Wah Lee. “A proper cocktail should be measured with a jigger; the correct measurement of the ingredients in a cocktail is very important, as is staying true to classic recipes because changes in the ingredients of their proportions can affect the outcome of the cocktail, which leads to bars serving inconsistent cocktails. Free pouring is a skill - it certainly shows you how to work faster and is great for showmanship, but what’s most important is the ethics behind customer service – cocktails should be perfect. Using a jigger can help you to work efficiently; it shouldn’t be seen as something that slows you down.” Part of Wahtiki’s adherence to Tiki tradition is the speed of the bar team. Today it’s common to wait 20-30 minutes for a round of ‘artisanal’ cocktails but at Wahtiki, drinks are produced quickly and consistently; there’s no ‘twists’ on the classics, no time-consuming processes, and not a single goatee or leather suspender-wearing ‘mixologist’ in sight. Instead, #WahtikiHK serves old school Tiki cocktails the way they were first created – cold, tall, and strong, using the great rums and juices, and garnished neat, colourful, and unfussy.

 #KnowYourTikiDrinks #WahKnowsTiki “Ice is never an afterthought. It is a very core ingredient and the bartenders need to treat it as such,” says our Tiki Master, Mr. Shi Wah Lee.

Dilution is very important with Tiki cocktails, this is because Tiki cocktails are generally cold, tall, and strong, therefore it requires rapid chilling and dilution to prevent them from overwhelming your palate. This is why, #WahtikiHK has its very own machine that make ice daily by using the cleanest and purest water to ensure dense, hard, crystal clear ice for each cocktail. 
In this photo: Queen's Park Swizzle, a tall, frosty, ice-capped, strong cocktail made with overproof rum, rich simple syrup and lime juice, it was named after the Queen’s Park Hotel in Trinidad where it was first created in the 1920s. #wahtikihk #hkbar #hkbar #iceforcocktails #knowyourtikidrinks #mastershiwahlee #tikidrinksrule #tikicocktailknowledge #bartender101 #hktikicocktail #authentictikibar #queensparkswizzle #makeourownice #hkiger #hkbartender #tikicocktailmaster #hktikimasterclass
