This was my drink a couple of nights’ ago. I didn’t have fancy rum so just used what I have. I did have fancy port though and bought papaya nectar specially for this drink. I used a little honey and fresh squeezed lemon and lime juice.
This drink was amazing good. One of the best I have ever had. The papaya and port had a special complex flavor with the rum in the background (and I am not a big fan of papaya). Plus the citrus juices and honey always helps. I was very pleasantly surprised by this drink. It turns out though that my papaya nectar also has apple and pineapple juice, so that may have affected the flavor as well. Nonetheless, I am a huge fan of this drink.
The Four Winds was a floating restaurant that had a sad ending. It was actually featured in pauldorpat.com. He is one of my favorite historians. So the 1956 graduating class from Bellevue High School were treated to breakfast there. Less than 30 years later, when I graduated from there, there was no such breakfast (nor meal of any kind). There is a photo of it here with other interesting restaurants. There is a menu for sale on Ebay but it doesn’t last any cocktails, including this one.
Here is the description from the book.
I did make Le Petite Poussin and it was great but fraught with some trial and errors. I should make it again though. This was 2 days after we first got Sunny, a rescue beagle. We miss her.
