Honi Honi vs Pinky Gonzalez

I use Webtender Wiki for new cocktails this evening. I go mad on tiki-drinks last few days and search something interesting here. And I find great idea – my favorite Mai Tai cocktail, but which made with blended scotch instead rum! Wow! Great idea, I think. And this cocktail has amazing name – Honi Honi… Another great idea – Pinky Gonzalez (Mai Tai with tequila instead rum) I find right here. It is great idea for comparsion of this cocktail.

I use my favorite motto – “Creating a drink that would be the finest drink we could make, using the finest ingredients we could find” (Trader Vic about Mai Tai`s idea) for components choice. Best scotch in my liquore cabinet is Famous Grause 12 y.o. and best tequila – Leyenda del Milagro Select Barrel Reserve Anejo. Both ingredients are ultimate spirit in my collection.

Honi Honi

45 ml blended whisky
15 ml orgeat
15 ml orange curacao
7 ml rock candy syrup
30 ml fresh lime juice
Shake all ingredients and strain in rocks glass over ice. Garnish traditionaly.

Actually it is great, well-balanced cocktail. The scotch give fascinating complex aftertaste.

Pinky Gonzalez

45 ml tequila
15 ml orgeat
15 ml orange curacao
7ml rock candy syrup
30 ml fresh lime juice
Shake all ingredients and strain in rocks glass over ice. Garnish traditionaly.

This is amazing cocktail too. It has complex sweet taste, but in color it is light brown :)

P.S. Another Honi Honi Cocktail – consist of light rum, apricot brandy and lemon juice. It will be tasted soon :)

Silver Amour-a-Rita

We are happy with this cocktail today :) It is ideal concoction for romantic evening. Fast, simple and very effective.

Silver Amour-a-Rita

45 ml silver tequila
30 ml Parfait Amour liqueur
15 ml fresh lime juice
Shake. Strain into cocktail glass. Garnish with thin orange slice.


P.S. This cocktail I prepared with rare bottle of Jose Cuervo La Rojena. This bottle has strange label and NOM 1104 (my ordinary bottle has NOM 1122). The taste of this tequila is so different too.

If you now something interesting about this tequila, please, write this in the comments.

I not sure tiki or not is this cocktail in fact, but I feel that it is tiki :)

A Lulu

30 ml light Puerto Rican rum
15 ml creme de noyeau (I use DiSaronno Originale)
30 ml fresh orange juice
15 ml passion fruit (mixer)
15 ml Galliano
Shake. Strain into ice-filled rocks glass.

As “passion fruit (mixer)” (wtf?) I use mix of passionfruit syrup and fresh lemon juice 1:1. I use Italian almond liqueur Disaronno Originale (Amaretto) instead creme de noyeau (french almond liqueur).

Admirable! Sweet and exotic taste and good balanced.
