This Tiki classic looks a little like frozen stagnant pond water but tastes minty fresh and rather good.
Apple Blossom Cocktail
Stupidly simple yet with a complex flavour of concentrated herbal apple.
Gun Club Punch No.1
Rum-laced fruit, as with most Trader Vic classics, balanced rather than sweet.
Mai Tai (Trader Vic's) Cocktail
We love Daiquiris and this is basically a classic Daiquiri with a few bells and whistles.
Major Bailey #1
As Victor says of this gin based Julep, This is a hell of a drink.
Major Bailey #2
Made well this is a long, fruity, brilliant frozen Daquiri.
Basically a Margarita lengthened with cranberry juice.
Tahitian Honey Bee
Basically a lemon honey Daiquiri or a lemon Canchànchara - very tasty it is too.
Dry yet slightly sweet with hints of orange, gin and warm spice.
Orangey in both colour and flavour with genever adding a pleasant bready backbone. Perhaps serve with marmalade on toast for breakfast.
Gin with a sweetening touch of peach, orange and pomegranate.
Bermuda Rose Cocktail
Delicate, floral and aromatic. A hint of sweetness but not so as to offend.
Bonnie Prince Charles
Honeyed, spiced cognac with a touch of citrus. But is it fit for a Prince?
Cuban Cocktail No.2
Faint sweetness balances a spirituous bite in this delicately fruity rose-red bite-sized cocktail.
Cuban Cocktail No.3
Like much of the Caribbean, this drink has French influences. Thank goodness for Admiral Rodney.
El Diablo Cocktail
The tequila, rich red berry fruit, lime and ginger aren't exactly a subtle combination but it is one that has proved both popular and enduring.
Cooling, fruity and pretty light on alcohol - perfect for a hot afternoon in Honolulu.
In his book Vic prefaces this cocktail with the comment, Nice, easy drink. It's basically a lemon Daiquiri with gin and grenadine.
A wonderfully fruity, fluffy and kitsch Tiki drink.
Maria Theresa Margarita
Originally sweetened with sugar syrup, this is better smoothed with honey.
