We have been working all summer in the rum lab creation new cocktail for a book that is being done as we speak called "Cocktails and Tales", which will be a recipe book with the stories that make the cocktail as interesting to know about as it is to drink. Many of the cocktail that I mix every day have a story behind their creation and the stories are really fun to explore. The book will include many of the classic tiki, Caribbean, and domestic recipes and the tales of their creation and where they have been. It will also include many of the recipes created in the Rum Lab. It is our hope to have the book ready for print in time to introduce it for spring break here in Key West.
The point of the discussion and the book is that you don't have to remain in a mold, you can operate outside where there are no rule only your taste bud determine the outcome of the creation. This is a really fun experience and one that makes for a great party as well. It give you the ability to be a "Don the Beachcomber" or a "Trader Vic" in your own back yard. Try it is fun and very gratifying when you discover the next new "hot cocktail". ;o)
