While staying on the island of Kauai, my Wife and I enjoyed these drinks nightly from the lanai of our rented condo. This drink makes use of a local favorite fruit beverage know as POG or Pass-O-Guava (passion fruit, orange, and guava juice). It can be found in most supermarket frozen juice aisles. We used Hana Bay brand rums while there but any good white and dark "float" rum will do in a pinch. Very easy and very refreshing.
Fill a tall glass with ice add white rum, add POG, float about 1/4 Oz. of dark rum on top, squeeze lime over top and add to glass, serve with straw. Kick back and enjoy the sunset!

Between The Sheets
Method: Shake and Strain into Hi-ball glass
This is a slightly less interesting drink than the Scorpion, but a classic nonetheless.
Method: Shake and strain
While entertaining guests at his mine in Cuba in 1898, Engineer Jennings Cox found that his Gin supply had run out, left with nothing else except local rum, lime and sugar, he mixed them together and the rest is history. Most now know this drink as a slus-puppie style beverage, however the original, served straight up, is delicious, JFK's favourite aperitif!
Variations: The "Hemingway" daiquiri is the same as the regular recipe with the addition of grapefruit and maraschino liqueur, alternatively fresh fruits work a treat, particularly banana and strawberry.
Method: shake and strain over cubed ice
An interesting and lethal concoction from the Tiki family, an odd mixture of ingredients but surprisingly it works
This tasty twist on the typical daiquiri is credited to the legendary Don the Beachcomber. The Parfait Amour liqueur imparts a 'regal' purple color to the drink, and adds orange and vanilla notes. Perfect for the next time The Queen (or other royalty)stops by for a visit !

Tiki drinks is the most intricate recipes found and some contains at least 10 ingredients and require a blender.But this one is shorter.Its basically a pink variation of Pina Colada but is less sweet.This one was served at the Portland, Oregon Kon-Tiki restaurant in 1960.

One of my favourite aperitifs - it´s like Trador Vic said: "Cuban Presidente" was "the 'Martini' of Cuba and, to me, a lot better than our own."!
Stir all ingredients with ice, strain into a cocktailglas, aromatize with orange rind by twisting it over the drink and placing it in the cocktail. The dry version is with dry vermouth (I prefer Noilly Prat); the "dulce" is with a little less Curaçao and 0,1 ounce of Grenadine. (Maraschino cherry for garnish)
A very simple house concoction.
Add all ingredients to a rocks glass and add a few large ice cubes, stir.

Stir up real good before you add ice; add ice, shake and strain into Chilled Cocktail Glass. Garnish with large lemon zest.
Jumping on the Seersucker trend, fabulous Flor De Caña rum has created a cocktail inspired by this classic fabric, simply called “The Seersucker.” With a nod to lemonade, “The Seersucker” is made with zesty cinnamon bark syrup and refreshing lemon juice, served over crushed ice for an invigorating jolt of fashionable flavor. Keeping you cool on hot summer nights, the heat from the cinnamon bark and the sweetness from the strawberry create a sublime flavor explosion. Flor de Caña’s Seersucker libation is poised to become as timeless as the fabric itself this summer season.
Muddle, shake with 3 ice cubes and strain into a pilsner glass with crushed ice. Garnish with a strawberry.

Vote for the classic daiquiri with its heratage dating to the 1890s Cuba. A cocktail which is making a huge come-back now that its being made more oftern with real fruit and not artficial flavours, a well balenced cocktail good for any time and any place.
Put sugar,water and lime jucie into the shaker and stir for 5 seconds add the Bacardi and some nice freezing cold ice straight from the freezer shake hard for about 12 seconds so the shaker nealy sticks to your hands.

I learned to make this punch in Trinidad and it's the way I learned not the way I've since read about the quantities of each ingredient. What I learned was 1 sweet, 2 sour, 3 strong, 4 weak. Other recipes I've seen have 1 sour and 2 sweet. I haven't tried this method as the one I learned works fine for me. Any rum would work but I would prefer a Mount Gay Sugar Cane or Eclipse rather than some flavored rum.
I always use fresh squeezed lime juice. I use ml as a measure as a 750 ml bottle equals 3 parts (strong), 500 ml of the lime juice (sour) and 250 ml simple syrup (sweet). Mix all of the ingredients and serve with plenty of ice (the weak ingredient). If you can let it sit in the glass for a bit to let some ice melt it should be just right. It can also be blended with ice in a blender for a slushy type of drink but take care because it packs a punch (pun intended). It also makes a great marinade for chicken.

A more culinary variation of a Harry MacElhone classic "Afterall". This one has great fresh summer flavors and the cardamom is a nice reference to the Trinidad food culture where the majority of the Denizen Rum blend is sourced.
Fill cocktail shaker with ice. Add rum, apple brandy, creme de peche, lime juice, lemon juice, and bitters. Shake well. Strain into a chilled coupe glass. Dust the lime wheel with cardamom and balance it on the edge of the cocktail. Serve immediately.

The cocktail golden prestige has been created by Nicolas Michel for the Swiss Bacardi legacy competition. Golden prestige has been chosen to be in the last 6 most promising cocktail. The final will take place the 4th of february 2013 in Zurich.
Inspiration behind the cocktail : Inspired by the legendary daiquiri, I wanted to create a cocktail that remained true to the roots of Bacardi superior. The idea is to emphasise the exoticism of the liquid that Don Facundo bottled 150 years ago, complementing his originality with some of my own. A bit of history, a dash of nobility combined with an oriental touch... That's how the "Golden prestige" was born. Salud.

**AUTHENTIC** Royal Navy Grog
I got the basic idea from the Pusser's Web Site, but you can tweak things JUST a bit. This is what they really served in the British fleet (Not so much in the U.S.). It's... DELICIOUS.
All right, this comes from about the 1820's and later, when the Jackies got their lime juice ration, a tablespoon of rough sugar to sweeten that, and their rum ration, which was delivered in concentrated form. Grog is made by 'Points of the Compass.' 2 points of the compass--two parts water to one part rum. You'd almost NEVER get Grog that strong. '3 points of the Compass' -- 3 parts water to 1 part rum. I like it 4 points of the compass, more than that, and the lime juice and sugar tend to drown out the rum. Mix well, a shaker or a blender gets the job done. What's interesting about REAL 'Royal Navy Grog' is HOW GOOD IT IS.
It's BEST chilled, but the flavor is really quite pleasant, and it has a nasty way of sneaking up on you. It goes down very easily, and by the time you've had two or three servings, so do you. The British tars used to add other things to the Grog as it suited them--Pepper, for one, I didn't think it added much. Gunpowder--that's BLACK gun powder (you really don't want to drink modern smokeless) was another, and as far as I can tell, no one much liked that. I didn't try the trick of IGNITING it because that could get you killed--particularly with the high-test rums.

Gulf Coast Sunset
This is my favorite on hot summer days here in Florida. I highly recommend giving this one a try.
Optional: 1/4 oz simple syrup (when your ginger beer has too much bite to it. i.e. Jamaican Ginger beer or the oranges aren’t as sweet as you want) I generally take 1 whole ripe orange and cut 2 wheels out of the center of the orange and slice these into 2 halves each, and drop in the bottom of the glass. I then squeeze the rest of the orange which usually gives about 1 oz. of juice. I pour this into a pint glass, and add the Cockspur Rum. Fill the glass halfway up with crushed ice. Pour in the Ginger Beer.
Have a seat outside, drink and relax. I find this drink very refreshing in the summer heat here in Florida.

Mai Tai (Trader Vic's)
Trader Vic Bergeron claims to have created this drink for friends of his at his bar in Oakland, CA. The couple who had just returned from Polynesia exclaimed 'Mai Tai Roe Ae' meaning 'the best, out of this world.' Anyhow this drink was originally made with Wray and Nephew 17 y.o which is unavailable except for a few bottles in the hands of collectors.
Method: shake and strain over cracked ice
Trader Vic's mentor Don the Beachcomber might well have fixed the original Mai Tai, a very different concoction, equal parts Cuban and Jamaican rums, lime, grapefruit, falernum, grenadine, Cointreau and a dash of Absinthe. Or if you can be bothered roast some Pineapple and muddle it into the Vic's recipe above.
Blend with 3/4 crushed ice and pour in angry tikimug. Grate fresh nutmeg on top. Stab with cinnamon stick.
I sometimes sub the 1.5 oz Demrara 151 with 1 oz Coruba 12 and 0.5 oz demerara1 151. Be careful with the pastis, it has a strong taste that can take over if too much is added.
Drink invented because a passionfruit was found.. Variation: Add a float of JW&N overproof and you have a Jam Slam. Add some extra love and Passionfruit and you have Mi Corazon. Add some bitters ad you have a Bittersweet Passion.
Cut the passionfuit in 2 halves and reserve one for garnish and scoop out the seeds and add to a shaker with the rest of ingredients. Shake and serve in tall glass with a straw. Garnish with the other passionfruit shell. A tip is to add more ice than you think you need in the glass.

Hart of Darkness
From Jeff Berry's "Beachbum Berry Remixed", posted with permission
Put everything in a blender. Blend at high speed for 5 seconds. Pour into a tall glass. Add ice cubes to fill.
Jeff's notes: Lemon Hart's 151 Demerara is our favorite rum. There's just one problem: you can't drink much of it without blacking out and waking up the next day in a country where no one can speak your language, but everyone seems very disappointed in you for some reason. So in 2005 we fashioned this drink to keep us from sipping the stuff neat. My notes: Forget adding the soda water... how about a little extra ice? You will not notice the lack of the soda water. Also see my post about dafruta passion fruit concentrate in the ingredients section, and making PFS from it. Finally, honey mix is 1:1 honey and water. I also like to use crushed ice at the end instead of cubes, filling a tiki mug. Addictive.

This is my take on a recipe published in the Washington Post in December 2009. It is a wonderful holiday season cocktail and looks really festive as well. Make it while fresh cranberries are available. The link to the original recipe is: here.
Shake in a cocktail shaker with ice, strain into cocktail glass, garnish with a round of lime or a couple of cranberries.
Fresh Cranberry Juice: A 12 oz bag cranberries, washed of course. 1 Cup water and 1/4 Cup sugar. Put all into a blender and blend thoroughly. Then strain through fine mesh strainer, pressing hard to extract as much juice as possible. You should wind up with about 16-18 oz of juice. This will be pretty tart.

Featured as part of a TRON-themed cocktail list at motel bar in Wellington is the Red Reconizer. Named after the floating vehicles which form part of the video game Space Paranoids, invented by Jeff Bridges' character, Flynn. This drink is also a loose tribute to bad guy enforcers everywhere who feature in films but often have no dialogue. They simply hover in the back ground, ready to do their master's bidding. For instance, the floating red robot Maximilian from that other gothic sci-fi film by Disney, The Black Hole.

This classic cocktail is one of the oldest drinks you will find in English print. The exact origins are much fodder for debate. Perhaps it was a signature drink of the old Knickerbocker Boat Club in New York. Regardless of its origins, there is no denying that it is a tasty cocktail in any era.
Fill a small highball glass (the same glass that serves this cocktail) three-quarters full of ice. Pour this ice along with the four cocktail ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Give it a good shaking and pour the shaker contents into the small highball glass. Garnish with a lime wedge.

blend all ingredient with 1 oz of budweiser beer and 3 ice cubes, pour over ice in a baloon glass and fill top with more budweiser beer, Enjoy
stir and strain into ice - filled old fashioned glass
1.0 oz. Skyy Vodka
0.25 - 0.75 oz. Bonny Doon Framboise 0.5 oz. orgeat syrup

This is a yummy treat made with 2 rhum agricoles and fresh pineapple.
Scoop out the pineapple and use some of the meat to muddle in a mixing glass. Add the lime juice, orgeat, the content from one of the passionfruit halves, honey mix and rums. Shake hard and not too long. Fill the pineapple with crushed ice Pour in pineapple, top with Ting, add some more crushed ice. Garnish with 2-3 pineapple leaves and a piece of speared pineapple. Add a straw. Believe me..this drink is worth all the effort..
HONEY MIX Add equal parts sugar and butter in a pan, about 2 tblsp of each, heat and stir well, add 2 tblsp liquid honey and stir until you get a saucy cream. Then add 1 tblsp of the overproof rum and stir again. Keep warm for mixing in drinks.It should be a little bit above room temp. It helps to use clarified butter as the problem with honey mix is the milk solids that form when it gets cold. These measurements are approximate.
I was served this drink at the Pegu Club. The balance between the Chartruese and the rhum really hit the spot.

This is a twist on a Hemingway daiquiri I came up with after having a slice of rhubarb pie, remembering that it's one of my favorite flavors and vowing to get that flavor into a glass.
Shake over ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a lime wedge. *Rhubarb Syrup 4 cups diced rhubarb 2.5 cups water 1.5 cups sugar .5 Tablespoon freshly microplaned ginger 1/8 tsp. Chinese Five Spice powder
Boil rhubarb w/water. Lower heat, simmer covered about 25 min. until rhubarb breaks down. Remove from heat. Stir in remaining ingredients & allow to cool slightly. Puree then strain thru fine chinoise, pressing on solids to remove as much syrup as possible.

Rob's No Freeze, No Batter Hot Buttered Rum
This was the result of some experimentation, back-engineering of a commercial recipe, and some wise counsel at a spice shop. Reviews have been... glowing.
Combine the dry ingredients very thoroughly together in a sealable container, it is VERY IMPORTANT to use a very hot, spicy cinnamon, such as Vietnamese Cassia, to keep the wonderful flavor of cinnamon from being overwhelmed by the other heavy hitters. The mix does NOT need to be refrigerated, you should keep it sealed to keep the spices strong and fresh. To prepare four small-ish servings, mix and heat the water, molasses, six tablespoons of the mix, and the vanilla to the point of boiling, but DO NOT boil. Do not serve in metal tankards, hands will fry! In each mug or tankard, put as much Pusser's Royal Navy
Rum as you want, two jiggers is rather ample. Pour in the hot mixture, melt a tablespoon of butter on top of each mug. This is sweet, rich, and soothing, just the thing for a cold winter's night or the dogwatch. Best!

Donn Beach (February 22, 1907 – June 7, 1989), born Ernest Raymond Beaumont Gantt, is the acknowledged founding father of tiki restaurants, bars and nightclubs. After years of being called Don the Beachcomber because of his original bar/restaurant, Gantt changed his name to Donn Beach. A bootlegger during Prohibition, Gantt moved to Hollywood in the 1930's, and opened "Don's Beachcomber" bar in 1934. In 1937, he opened the first Don the Beachcomber restaurant, featuring a variety of exotic dishes. As important as the food were the exotic and potent rum cocktails that became the hallmark of Don the Beachcomber. Gantt is credited with the creation of the Zombie, Tahitian Rum Punch, and the Navy Grog, among others. He is also one of the claimants to the creation of the classic Mai Tai. "The Beachcomber"cocktail is a tribute to this legendary man!

This simple recipe provides a basic sweet and spicy coffee. Typically I will mix the rum and coffee first. Then slowly stir in the Irish Cream to minimize the curdle effect. Finish the top with whipped cream if you like it sweet.

Discovered by accident when I arrived at a location at the end of a long trip, and those were the only ingredients available. I later discovered Mt. Gay, and standardized the drink as 8 oz. Dr Pepper, 1 oz. Mt. Gay Eclipse. Naturally, others may prefer to reduce the sweetness and increase the alcohol content. Since the Dr. Pepper makes the drink black in color (regardless of ratio), I named the resulting beverage "Black Squirrel," after a creature (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_squirrel) common in the Great Lakes area of N America, such as Toronto. For those who do not know Dr. Pepper is the world's first soft drink (older than Coca-cola).

Guaraná is a stimulant drink very popular all throughout Brazil. It’s the local alternative to Coca-Cola, Fanta, Pepsi and other products from the multinationals - mind you, the most famous brands of guaraná are bottled by those same multinationals. The drink is made from the seed of the fruit of the same name (scientific name: Paullinia cupana). The small tree from which the fruit grows is found in the north of Brazil only - and in parts of Venezuela. The big names in the guaraná market are Antarctica and Kuat. In the north of Brazil there are several local brands with no distribution elsewhere in the country.

I usually use it sometimes when i cook jasmine rice to make the rice fragrant. Pandan is mostly used in Asia to add fragrance to desserts and rice.It has a very special fragrance. Its very distincly flavored and should be used in small quantities, just to give a hint of "something" to the drink. Ratio 2:1
Wash and cut the pandan leaves in short pieces. Combine the sugar and water in a pan, and add the pandan leaves. heat and simmer until the sugar is dissolved, and stir. take off the heat and cool and discard the leaves. Bottle. Store in the fridge.
Kaffir lime syrup
This syrup is made with light muscovado and kaffir lime leaves. I used a 2:1 ratio. Its very distincly flavored and should be used in small quantities, just to give a hint of "something" to the drink. Combine the sugar and water in a pan, and add the kaffir lime leaves. Heat and simmer until the sugar is dissolved, and stir. Take off the heat and cool and discard the leaves. Bottle. Store in the fridge.
Bitter Grapefruit Syrup
This homemade bitter flavored syrup combine grapefruit with Campari, JW&N 151, and vermouth for a sweet, tart, and very bitter concoction.
1. Halve grapefruit. Juice one half, reserve juice, and discard rind. Coarsely chop remaining half and reserve. 2. Combine sugar and water in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir until sugar dissolves, and let syrup simmer until it thickens slightly, about 2 minutes. Add chopped grapefruit and cook until grapefruit releases all its juice, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. 3. Combine cooled grapefruit syrup (including chopped fruit), reserved juice, Campari, W&N 151, and sweet vermouth in a large container with a tight-fitting lid. Stir well, cover, and refrigerate at least 1 hour before using.
I started a batch of Grapefruit bitters yesterday (using pink grapefruit) and here is the recipe (Gumbopages)
Peel the grapefruits and finely chop the whole peel, including (and especially) the white pith; that's where you're going to get most of your bitter component for these bitters. Peel, thinly slice and then julienne the ginger, and roughly chop the cashews. In a large jar with a rubber seal, add the grapeferuit peel, coriander seed, ginger and cashews and pour in the rum. Seal and keep for one week, gently agitating the mixture daily. After a week of maceration, strain the mixture through a fine sieve and then again through a coffee filter. Finish the recipe by adding caramelized sugar syrup -- place the sugar in a small, heavy pan and heat over medium heat until the sugar melts and turns light-to-medium brown (be careful not to burn it). Remove from the heat and carefully add the water. Stir and/or swirl until all the sugar has dissolved. Add the syrup to the bitters and let stand until it's clear, then bottle for use.
Blood Orange Cachaca
I got a excellent recipe from Chris, (Samuraibartender) thanks!
* Carefully peel Blood Oranges, being sure to remove & discard all bitter pith from the skin. Likewise remove & discard all pith from the flesh of the Oranges. * Mince Lemon Grass & shell Cardamom. * Combine ingredients in a clean container & add Cachaca. * Seal container & swirl/shake vigorously. * Place in a cool, dark location for approximately seven days, swirling vigorously several times. * Strain three times by preferred method (coffee filter, cheesecloth &c), pressing on fruit to remove all liquid. * Clean container with hot water and replace liquid within. Allow to stand for one week. * Strain or rack again if necessary, bottle and store for several months (longer if refrigerated).
Enjoy in any cocktail (as appropriate, flavor-wise) which calls for Cachaca - a Caipirinha w/ half lime & half blood orange muddled works nicely.
Recipe is from Alton Brown's "Good Eats"
4 cups pomegranate juice
1 Tbsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup granulated sugar
Mix pomegranate juice, lemon juice and sugar in a saucepan and heat over medium, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves.
Reduce heat to med-low and cook until syrup reduces to 1 1/2 cups, this will take about 50 minutes. Consistency should be of a light syrup. Set aside and let cool to room temperature then transfer to a clean bottle or jar, may be stored in the refrigerator for up to 6 months.

MY FAVORITE TAHITIAN TREAT
This is one of my fav treats,Tahitian oven baked papaya. This is for 6 serv.
Cut the papayas in 2 and take out the content so you get 2 "bowls", discard the seeds (or use them in a salad dressing.) Place the papayas in a oven proof dish. In each papaya shell put: A stick of butter, 1/2 vanilla bean, scrape out the seeds and add them first and then the bean itself on top. 1 tblsp sugar sprinkled over 1 tblsp of the rum Bake in the oven for 15 mins at 180C (I don`t have the F grades for the oven here..) Before serving, pour coconut milk over the papaya halves. This is a real treat but very simple and you can serve it with ice cream too if you wish, its also deliscious.
This recipe for rum cake is so easy and can be dressed up by the addition of fruit placed into the middle of the cake for decoration. Pecans make a nice addition, placed in the pan before the batter is poured in.
Mix first 6 ingredients & pour into a well greased Bundt pan. Bake 50 minutes @ 325 deg, or until a knife comes out clean. To glaze, heat remainder of ingredients except rum, to dissolve sugar. Allow to cool, then add rum just before glazing.
To glaze the cake in the pan, poke holes in bottom, then pour glaze on. Or turn the cake out, poke holes, & pour. Or turn the cake out, pour the glaze into bottom of pan & return the cake to pan to soak. Your decision. Enjoy!

Aussie Rum Balls
Just to show that Rum can be eaten as well as drunk. This is my variation of my Mother-in-laws recipe for a Christmas treat.
The original recipe used Bundaberg Rum, however I find that Captain Morgan Spiced makes a very pleasant substitute. You can substitute Glazed ginger or sultanas for the cherries for variety. Crush biscuits until fine, mix the rest of the ingredients

Rum Flambé Shrimps
Yummy peppery shrimps with dark rum and flambéf in white rum.
Chop some parsley (enough to make 2 tbls of chopped parsley)..very very finely, do the same with red ognion and challots.( to make 1 tblsp each of readychopped) Put aside. Heat some oil ( 1-2 tblsp) in a heavy frying pan and then take a bunch ( measure how large the shrimps are compared to how many people you are, maybe 3-4 per person is ok?) of nice large tiger shrimps and fry them lightly for a short time. Take the shrimps out and put aside. Add the shopped stuff in the pan and fry it. Put back the shrimps in the pan and Add some dried chili flakes ( 1/2 to 1 tsp) , some salt (,a dash? after taste) and freshly ground black pepper.(after taste) Stir and add dark rum (1-2 tblsp) and let the flavors just blend. Now add a spoon of white rum and flambé.( 1 tblsp or maybe a bit less, depends on your "flambe-space" i have a small kitchen so i take less..be careful though ) Ready to serve! with whatever you feel should go with the shrimps. PS: Some coconutmilk added at the end of cooking adds another dimension..
Pan Seared Sea Scallops
I've tried this with several different rums, but so far 10 Cane is the crowd favorite at my house.
Fry the bacon to a crispy state in pan, remove and drain the bacon, pour off half the grease. Add the scallops to the pan and sear them in the remaining bacon grease on top and bottom, about a minute per side. Remove the scallops from the pan. Add the garlic and scallions to the pan. Before they start to burn, pour in the rum to deglaze the pan and then add the coconut water. When the liquid begins to steam, add the scallops back to the pan and cover for 3-4 minutes. Remove the scallops to a medium sized bowl and reduce the liquid by half. Crumble the bacon into the liquid and pour over the scallops.
You can serve the scallops with a variety of sides. I served this over a bed of wild rice and it was a big hit.

Put the mesh on top of the fish fillets and roll them together, secure with a pick. Put in a lightly buttered oven dish. Peel the sweet potato and slice in appr 2 cm thick slices. Pre grill the fish rolls and the sweet potatos until you get grill marks. Sprinkle some powdered cinnamon over the sweetpotatos and then drizzle some honey on top. Put the fish rolls and sweet potatos back in the oven dish. They now go in the owen for about 15 mins, the fish might be ready a bit earlier than the sweet potato so keep an eye. In the mean time, cut theZucchinis in thin slices lengthwise and fry them lightly in olive oil, add salt and freshly ground black pepper.
SAUCE: Finely chop the ognion and garlic cloves and fry in olive oil, add 3 tblsp Mustard and then squeeze a half lime over. Mix together. Add cream and coconut milk after taste. Whisk together until you get a creamy sauce. Makes 2 serv - Cheers and Enjoy!

TROPICAL SPICY BANANA SAUCE FOR GRILLED FISH

Toss the sliced bananas in the fruit juices and place in a saucepan with the molasses, cardamom, vanilla seeds and bean, rum and sugar and bring to the boil and simmer for about 10 minutes. Mix in mixer and if needed add some water, then pass through sieve. Serve over tropical grilled fish. I use with red snapper.
QUICK SALMON RECIPE WITH VANILLA RUM
This is a quick dish for 2.
Take 2 salmon fillets without skin and marinade them in Mister Magic`s Salmon Spice, or a lemonpepper spice, a tsp vanilla rum, some fresh lime juice and some dried, (not old) dark red chili flakes and some salt. Let sit for say 1 hour.. Then fry in butter and olive oil, when half done add oatley cooking sauce or other cooking cream sauce, drissle it over the salmon. Add some quartered white mushrooms and green peas,and a little extra sauce after your taste. Fry until almost done, and take off the heat. Serve with warm Tagliatelle pasta and some freshly ground black pepper.

Simple Rum Cake
This has proven to be a hit every time I make it. And the best part is that it is so simple to make that I can do it myself.
Place the pound cake in baking pan and pour the rum around the sides. Let sit until all of the rum is absorbed. Avoid the top so you can easily spread the frosting.
Heat the butter, sugar, mix then add the coconut to make frosting. If you don't have enough frosting, add some sliced banana to stretch the frosting without making it too sweet.
Just don't tell anyone how easy this is to make.
I first learned the basic recipe for this satay dish when working in a Thai restaurant.Then I took it with me and have personalized it a bit and I have used it to feed many. My advice is make enough skewers, they never last. Its a easy dish to make but if you cook for say 40 it takes some time. You may do this by deepfrying in a large wok (my preference) or over charcoal grill (summertime) or grill in the oven.(they get a bit drier) This is for 2 pers.
Mix all the ingredients for marinade and mix the chicken with the marinade, wrap a plastic bag around the skewers,and leave in the fridge overnight.
You can make this sauce thicker if you add more peanut butter or paste.Try to get it creamy. The Currypastes can be bought readymade(easy)or you make your own (tastier,but lots of work here), check recipes on the net.
Start with roughly crush the peanuts in a mortar until you get a rough peanut paste.Or use ready made crunchy peanut butter. Pour Coconutmilk in a pot and bring to a very light boil on medium heat. Add the currypastes,sugar, salt,fishsauce, sugar,tamarind juice. stir and mix together then add the peanuts. Stir while cooking on low heat until you get a thick sauce.Take off the heat and kep warm under cover.
Important here is to not boil the sauce too hard or too long then it will curdle. If it does, try to add water and stir.
Chicken Satay part 3 - The Chicken Skewers
You may do this by deepfrying in a large wok (my preference) or over charcoal grill (summertime) or grill in the oven.(they get a bit drier) This is for 2 pers. Buy chicken fillets for 2 people. Cut them in slices lengthwise and thread on bambooskewers with the tickest part at the base of the skewer.If using bamboo skewers soak the bottom of them in water for 20 mins before starting.
Rice - Use Thai Jasmine rice and cook.You make color the rice yellow by using turmeric or egg yolk food color. Deepfry, grill or grill in the oven..all the chicken skewers.
To serve: SIMPLE: With rice and with the peanut sauce beside and a crisp salad. PARTY: Buy a large banana leaves, wash and lightly oil them with oilve oil.cut out pieces to fit the serving plates. Place 2 large serving ,plates on top of the banana leaf. Put smaller pieces of banana leaves on the plates. Add the skewers in a nice way. Add the decorations (part4) Pour the rice (yellow rice) on either a large serving plate or in a huge coneshaped strainer, aka chinois and pack it lightly.Turn the strainer upside down on the plate and take it off, now you have a rice cone.. Stick chicken skewers around it together with orchids,leaves and chili flowers for a real nice presentation. Pour the peanut sauce in a nice bowl and add a few kaffir lime leaves on top. Add lime slices a here and there. Voila! PARTY!
Chicken Satay Dish - Part 4 - The Decorations.
There are a few very simple decorations to use, they look really pro but are easy to make. Chiliflowers: Use large red and yellow Thai chilis.Cut lengthwise about 5-6 cuts around the chili from (almost) the top and down all the way to the bottom. Carefully cut away the membrance and the seeds. Put them in a large glass filled with water and ice and leave in the fridge for 4-6 hrs. The chilis will open up to become "flowers" Tomato roses: Cut the top off the tomato and put aside. Cut the skin off around the tomato in a spiral manner. Roll the skin-spiral to make a "rose", put it on top of the tomato top and secure if needed with a piece of toothpick. Use fresh Dendrobium orchids and their leaves as decoration. Use lime slices and kaffir lime leaves.
Orange-Lime Scented Peppercorns
Peppercorns infused with orange and lime oil add an unexpected fragrance to chicken and fish...
Spread peppercorns on a work surface. Roll an orange and a lime over them to extract the essential oils in the peel. Crack or grind the peppercorns and use immediately. Essential oils are volatile, so use these flavored peppercorns off the heat.
Pasta with Rum Sauce
Im a lover of pasta..i have cooked pasta since i was 12.. But never have i seen a pasta meat sauce with rum in it.. so i had to make one. I know..wine in it is the usual..but this is experimental cooking!
Slice one yellow ognion roughly and fry in some olive oil. Add minced meat and fry it up a bit then add tomato sauce made from plum tomatos. Add a some chicken stock and some black pepper. Press the garlic and add. Add the mixed roasted paprika. Leave to cook for a while and then turn down the heat. Add some ruccola pesto and fresh (or dried) oregano and basil. Add a little dark demerara rum..( i use 1 oz) and some large green or black (or both) olives. Serve with hot pasta of your choice, mix well with the sauce. I choose one of my favorite pastas, Tagliatelle or Spaghetti Bigoli. Sprinkle some fresh grated parmesan over and some fresh ground black pepper.
ROASTED PAPRIKA: Put the owen a high grill. Place 2-3 red paprikas on a owen proof dish. Grill near the heat until they turn black. Cool and take the skin off. Place in mixing bowl with a little water and puree.
I learned to make this punch in Trinidad. It follows as 1 sweet, 2 sour, 3 strong and 4 weak. I've seen it other places as 1 sour and 2 sweet but the first works better for me. I use any rum but prefer something flavorful like Mount Gay Sugarcane or Eclipse. Seeing as a bottle of rum is 750 ml I use that as 3 parts. Simple syrup for me is 1 cup of sugar disolved in 1 cup of hot water and simmered until slightly thick. This recipe will come out with enough to fill two 750 ml bottles and I don't usually refrigerate it and it keeps for quite a while. Pack a glass with ice and then fill with punch. I like to let it sit for a few minutes until some of the ice melts. I have some of this and close my eyes and I'm right back in the islands. It is a good marinade overnight for chicken as well.
