Default Falernum/Corn N' Oil

Anybody have a recipe for Falernum or know of a good brand? Also if anyone knows of a good Corn N' Oil recipe I'd be grateful.

Try this:

http://recipes.egullet.org/recipes/r206.html

Or:

http://slakethirst.com/2005/07/18/sl...dies-falernum/

Then, John D. Taylor's Velvet Falernum is the only commercial brand worth trying. It is quite good! Haus Alpenz imports it to the US, I believe.

Both Falernum and Corn N' Oil are Barbadan in origin and the usual versions of the drink use Mount Gay Eclipse. There are a number of variations and a delicious Cruzan Blackstrap version has become popular.

I could be mistaken, but, I believe that this version was discontinued and replaced by the John D. Taylor Velvet Falernum. On the JDTVF, the supply comes and goes. It is a staple of the Tiki drink crowd (I am a card carrying member, BTW) and bars like Forbidden Island. Last year, when supplies ran low, Martin Cate, then, of FI cornered the market to keep their operation rollling. After a few months, Haus Alpenz restocked all the stores.

Thanks guys, got my falernum recipe. Also saw a recipe that said 2oz Blackstrap 1/2oz falernum, 2 dashes bitters, and a lime over ice. Thanks for the advice with the eclipse, I will have to give that one a try as well.

Ron- check this out:

http://www.cocktailchronicles.com/20...28/falernum-8/

We make a batch every week! So easy! We shop at a restaurant supply place where you can get a case of persian limes- 54 of them- for $5, so we make our own margarita mix and falernum every month. From what I understand, a month is about the limit of time before fresh lime juice starts to get funky. Of course it never lasts that long in our house!

For the falernum we nixed the 151- thought it was a little harsh.... We use Goslings gold- it takes longer to extract (2 days instead of 1) but it's a bit mellower. We use blackstrap and goslings - 1 to 1 with falernum and a twist of lime in our corn and oil. My wife likes it a little lighter, so she make hers with 1/2 goslings black seal and 1/2 cruzan white to an equal amount of falernum..

ENJOY!

-Danny

Good luck!!
