Navy Grog – Make Victor Bergeron’s Classic Tiki Cocktail

Victor Bergeron’s Navy Grog Recipe Vs Donn Beach’s Recipe

Donn Beach and Victor Bergeron’s Navy Grog recipes are similar and practically the same drink. The only difference between the two recipes is that Donn Beach uses honey instead of allspice dram and has an ounce of soda water added. The Biggest difference is the ice. Donn Beach’s recipe calls for a shaved ice cone around the straw. Victor Bergeron’s recipe call for shaking the cocktail with shaved or crushed ice and then pouring the entire contents of the shaker, ice and all, into the glass.

If you pick up Trader Vic’s cocktail book, the recipe will call for 3 ounces of Vic’s Navy Grog Mix. This was to sell his Trader Vic branded mixers that no longer exist. Still, fortunately for us, Victor Bergeron never really kept his Navy Grog mix recipe a secret. Vic’s Navy Grog was equal parts lime juice, grapefruit juice, and Allspice Dram. Knowing that and the rest of the recipe printed in the book, we can perfectly recreate the Trader Vic’s Navy Grog cocktail.

The Most Important Ingredient

The allspice dram sets the Victor Bergeron version apart from the Donn Beach recipe, and I feel this is the better version. While the honey in Donn’s adds more sweetness, the allspice liqueur adds nice cinnamon and clove spice. So try the two. They are nearly identical and see which one you prefer.

Long Island Ice Tea – Make The Classic 1972 Bob Butt Recipe

Long Island Ice Tea Cocktail
Long Island Ice Tea Cocktail

Created by Bob Butt in 1972, this drink was an entry into an orange liqueur mixing contest. The Long Island carries on the tradition of naming east coast cocktails after regions of New York and explicitly gets its name from the fact that Mr. Butt was working at a bar on Long Island.

White Lily – Make This Wonderful 1934 Savoy Recipe

White Lily Cocktail
White Lily Cocktail

A Short History Of The American Bar at the Savoy Hotel In London.

In 1893, The American Bar at the Savoy hotel started serving American-style cocktails in London to the British upper class. The American Bar has always been a high-end bar but what set it on the map was when Harry Craddock became its head bartender in the 1920s. Harry Craddock was a British-born bartender who immigrated to the United States, eventually becoming a US citizen and head bartender of several high-end hotel bars. Still, Harry found himself out of work with the start of prohibition in 1920. He then immigrated back to England and became head bartender of the Savoy Hotel’s Bar. Harry transformed The American Bar from a high-end bar to one of the seminal cocktail bars of the 20th century. As the American prohibition was ending, the hotel realized it should record all of its most famous recipes and the innovations Harry brought to the bar. A year later, they published the Savoy Cocktail Book. Printed in 1934, the Savoy Cocktail Book documents the bar’s best recipes from the 1890s to the 1930s and stands as the pillar of prohibition-era European cocktail innovation. If Jerry Thomas’s Bartenders Guide is the best cocktail book the 1800s gave us, then The Savoy Cocktail Book is the best cocktail book of the first half of the 1900s. I don’t think I will ever be able to drink there, though. A cocktail cost around $250 there, and they have one that’s almost $1000, and I’m not the Amazon guy, so good thing we have their recipe book.

What Does The White Lily Taste Like?

The white lily is a fantastic cocktail. It is clean and strong with a delicate orange and herbal flavor. If you wanted to group it, then it’s more along the lines of a vesper or dry martini. The white lily does many things right that it’s really impressive—lightly sweet, strong, and delicate flavor, citrusy and herbal.

Use The Right Orange Liqueur.

The most essential ingredient in the white lily is the orange liqueur. You have to use Cointreau, no other brand works, and I will tell you why. When mixing any cocktail, it’s best to use a neutral base spirit, orange liqueur, like Cointreau, and not one that uses an aged-based spirit, like Grand Marnier. Grand Marnier is excellent stuff and wonderful to drink by itself, but the color is off, and aged oaked brandy flavors compete with the cocktail’s other flavors. It’s excellent for sipping, not so much for mixing drinks. It specifically has to be Cointreau and not another brand of dry neutral orange liqueur because Cointreau has a ton of orange peel oils dissolved in it. This cocktail’s beautiful pale white color is the dissolved oils in the orange liqueur breaking off the alcohol molecule they are attached to in a process called the Ouzo effect or louching. It is similar to how absinthe turns pale white when you add water. Cointreau does too, but to a much lesser degree since it has fewer dissolved oils than absinthe. The amount of oil capable of being dissolved in a liqueur will be proportional to the ABV of the liqueur. At 40% ABV, Cointreau has far more orange peel oil than an orange liqueur would at 35, 30, or 25% ABV. The oil also adds a lot of flavors, but only Cointreau will give you that beautiful look and intense orange flavor. Again other orange liqueurs will still taste good but will not have the same appearance. Check out my Absinthe drip description for a more detailed explanation of the Ouzo effect.

Daiquiri – Make This Amazing Classic Late 1800s Cuban Cocktail

Daiquiri Cocktail
Daiquiri Cocktail

In the 1930s, Cuban cocktails started to become popular in the united states thanks to the writers F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway. This cocktail was invented in the late 1800s by Jennings Cox, an American mining engineer living in Cuba at the time, and is named after the Daiquiri Mines he worked in the east of Santiago.

The oldest printed recipe I could find for this is from the 1935 Bar La Florida from Havana, Cuba, and it refers to Jennings’s original recipe as the Daiquiri Nom. 1, So I will call it the #1 here as well. The reason for this is the Bar then created three more versions of the daiquiri. The orange-flavored #2, The grapefruit-flavored #3, and the Lemon flavored #4. They also invented the Hemingway, which is boozier and less sweet #3.

I can’t say this is the exact #1 recipe from Bar La Florida as that one used lemon juice instead of lime. Most periphery writings around that same time that I found that Jenning’s original cocktail used lime and lemon, makes the #1 very similar to the #4. So I made this one lime for the sake of variety and with some precedent from most other writings.

Rum Rickey – Make This Delicious Variation of the Gin Rickey

Rum Rickey
Rum Rickey

The History Of The Rickey.

Invented in the Late 19th century by D.C. lobbyist Joe Rickey (At least that’s who is credited with having invented it), the rickey is a refreshing and slightly tart cocktail. This recipe is a brandy variation of the original whiskey-based rickey. More than just a recipe, the rickey became an archetype for many popular cocktails, even if you don’t realize they are structurally a rickey. The rickey cocktail structure is simple: 1/2 ounce (15 mls) citrus, 2 oz (60 mls) base spirit, and 5 oz (150 mls) carbonated beverage. For example, the rum and coke with a lime is a rickey, Dark ‘N’ Stormy, gin, and tonic; are all based on rickey structures.

What Does A Rum Rickey Taste Like?

This is my favorite version of the rickey. Something about rum and lime just goes together so well. The rum rickey has notes of molasses, toasted caramel, and lime is refreshing and delicious cocktail.

Properly Adding Soda Water.

The essential ingredient in a rickey, I feel, is the soda water and how the cocktail is prepared. Of course, the spirit and citrus are the flavors you taste, but the soda water is what provides all the texture. If you prepare it to stay as bubbly as possible, you will have an outstanding cocktail. Still, if you don’t cool the ingredients or glass properly and stir it too violently, you will end up with a flat lame cocktail, similar to drinking a flat soda. Sure the flavor will be there, but it will be flat. So here is what you do. The two things you have control over are 1). the temperature, and 2). how violently you add the soda water. First, add the spirit and citrus to a glass filled with ice. Stir them together so that they get cold and the inside of the glass chills. Even better, you could chill the glass in the freezer first, but that requires forethought. Stirring with ice works well enough on the spot. Next, when you add the soda water, do it gently and only give the drink a couple of turns to mix the soda water with the spirit and citrus. Adding and stirring the soda water like this helps maintain as much carbonation as possible, and the bubblier it is, the more refreshing it will be.

Long Beach Ice Tea – Make This Refreshing Twist On A Long Island Ice Tea

Long Beach Ice Tea Cocktail
Long Beach Ice Tea Cocktail

Long Beach, CA, is the hometown of the great Snoop Dogg and this refreshing variation of the Long Island Ice Tea. Just like the original Long Island Ice Tea, this cocktail is a one-and-done drink, which is powerful. The Long Beach Ice Tea is precisely the same as the long island but replaces the coke with cranberry juice and turns it into a fruity and slightly tart cocktail. So it will still floor you, but you will be refreshed as you get smashed. As far as where and who created this cocktail, I don’t have the slightest idea. Long Beach, California, maybe…

Bob Butt created the original Long Island Ice Tea in 1972; this drink was an entry into an orange liqueur mixing contest, even though there is hardly any orange liqueur in that cocktail. I hope you enjoy this fantastic west coast variation of the Long Island.

La Water – Make This Strangely Good Green Cocktail

LA Water Cocktail
LA Water Cocktail

A friend of mine suggested I add this cocktail, and while the stuffy pretentious drinker in me turns up its nose to modern cocktails like this, the laid-back, chill me loves drinks like this. I have no idea who first made this, they are most likely still young and still alive, but I will take a wild guess and say it was first mixed somewhere in LA. The joke is that this funky-colored drink is supposed to look like tap water in Los Angeles. I get that the joke is that the water is gross and funky, but if the tap water there tasted like this, I would move to LA and never look back. No, it’s not vintage, but it’s super good.

Piña Colada – Make This Delicious Classic Tiki Cocktail

Pina Colada
Pina Colada

The Origins Of The Piña Colada.

The famous origin story for the Piña Colada states it was invented in Puerto Rico in the 1950s or 1960s. Three bartenders claim to have invented it. Ramon Marrero in 1952, Ricardo Garcia a couple of years later, and Ramon Mingot in 1963. Chances are they all made some variation of the same drink. Perhaps just using different amounts of each ingredient. It’s only three ingredients. I’m willing to bet they were not the first to mix rum with coconut and pineapple. The Piña Colada is the official cocktail of Puerto Rico and the national Piña Colada Day is July 10th in the United States.

The 1972 Trader Vic’s Cocktail Guide is the oldest reference to pina colada I could find. His 1947 edition does not have a Piña Colada, and I could not find any 1950s or 1960s reference to it in print. Victor Bergeron’s 1972 recipe is:

  • 2 oz (60 mLs) Gold Rum
  • 3 oz (90 mLs) Pineapple Juice
  • Blend with shaved ice and pour over ice in a tall glass with a straw.

The word Piña Colada is translated to “strained pineapple.” I always found it a weird name since it’s only referring to the pineapple juice in the cocktail. But That name makes sense for this recipe since it does not have any coconut. In 1978 Warren Zevon released his hit song “Werewolves of London.” One of the lyrics is, “I saw a werewolf drinkin’ a piña colada at Trader Vic’s.
His hair was perfect.” The exact piña colada Warren references would have been the pineapple and rum only recipe. A year later, in 1979, the song “Escape” by Rupert Holmes was released. The main chorus from that song is “If you like piña coladas,
And gettin’ caught in the rain”. I remember seeing an interview with Rupert Holmes when I was a child where he stated he didn’t not like piña colada because he did not like coconut. So the version Rupert Holmes is referring to is the coconut and pineapple version. The first printed piña colada with coconut I could find is from the 1980 Manual Del Bar by. The recipe from that book is:

  • 50 gramos de ron (1.5 oz rum)
  • 25 gramos de leche de coco (almost 1 oz coconut milk)
  • 75 gramos de jugo de ananá (2.5 oz pineapple juice)

I found the overwhelming majority of piña colada recipes from 1980 to 1987. As if that was its spike in popularity, every one of those is a combination of rum, pineapple juice, and coconut cream/milk.

Perhaps it was invented in Puerto Rico, but the first reference I can find to it is from Trader Vic. His recipe also matches the cocktail’s name and makes it make sense. Victor Bergeron was also pretty good about citing a recipe that wasn’t his own. Not for every drink, but it is popular enough. He would mention Donn Beach for creating it or if he drank it while on some particular island. His recipe does not have a citation, so either he left it out or invented it. This reminds me of the Margarita. Most believe it is a Mexican cocktail, but the first record is from the British 1937 Cafe Royal Cocktail Book, and it is not referred to as a Mexican cocktail until 1953. It could also be that these are two different recipes, and the piña colada was adopted into the Puerto Rican version. Who knows

The Best Rum To Use And Substitutions For a Piña Colada.

The best rum to use is either a white unaged rum or a very lightly aged rum. The primary cocktail flavors are pineapple and coconut, so the rum should disappear. An aged rum would muddy up the flavor and take away from the drink’s bright tropical taste. That being said, Vodka makes a great Piña Colada. Vodka is an excellent substitute for rum. Another great substitute is silver tequila. Silver tequila makes a great Piña Colada too. Almost any clear dry spirit makes a good Piña Colada. Pisco, and cachaca all work well. Again, the point is to have the spirit disappear into the drink.

Should You Just Buy Piña Colada Mix, Cream Of Coconut, Or Just Make Them From Scratch?

The Piña Colada is just three ingredeints. Equal parts rum, cream of coconut, and pineapple juice. There is no need to buy a premade mix. Don’t get me wrong, most premade Piña Colada mixes are good, but they taste artificial. Like how grape soda is good, but it doesn’t taste like actual grapes. My advice is to skip the mix and make the drink yourself.

A better question is whether to buy cream of coconut or make it from scratch. Cream of coconut is coconut simple syrup. It is both cost-effective to make your own and makes a much better product with little effort. I have a recipe for it here that I believe is the best, but premade cream of coconuts like Coco Lopez or Coco Real are great. Homemade is preferred, but most store-bought cream of coconuts are still quality products.

Hemingway Daiquiri – Make This Classic 1930s Bar La Florida Cocktail

Hemingway Daiquiri Cocktail
Hemingway Daiquiri Cocktail

Also called a Papa Doble, this cocktail is credited to being invented by Ernest Hemingway (along with several other drinks) when he was not satisfied with the Daiquiri #3 at the La Florida bar in Havana, Cuba. Ernest Hemingway was a heavy drinker who also happened to be diabetic. Therefore, all the Hemingway-inspired cocktails are heavy on the liquor and very light on sweetness. True to form, Daiquiri #3 was too sweet and not boozy enough for him, so he requested if the bartender could make it less sweet and with more rum. Thus the Hemingway was invented.
