Munktiki-created tiki mugs based on tikis found at the Trader Vic's PDX location (hint, you can see several of them in the preceding photos).
Nelson's Blood cocktail.
Nelson’s Blood, slightly modified (from Trader Vic’s Portland)
Juice of 1/4 lemon (squeeze over glass)
Juice of 1/4 blood orange (squeeze over glass)
1/4 oz lemon juice
1/4 oz blood orange puree*
1/4 oz brandy
1/4 oz falernum
2 oz dark rum (Blackwell Jamaican rum)
2 oz ginger beer
Squeeze the 1/4 lemon and the 1/4 blood orange over a double old fashioned glass. Shake all ingredients except for the ginger beer in a shaking tin with ice cubes and the squeezed lemon rind. Pour unstrained into the double old fashioned glass. Float ginger beer. Garnish with the squeezed blood orange rind and spanked mint.
* I use fresh pressed blood orange juice, but I don’t strain it, so it’s close to a puree in my book.
