NOURMAHAL PUNCH

From Trader Vic's Book of Food and Drink, 1946

Who was the guy that had the fancy boat? Astor, Vanderbilt, Gould? I forget his name. Anyway, I understand that aboard that gorgeous floating palace the thing to do was drink Nourmahal Punch. Strictly hearsay, but this is the way to make it. Drink one and see if you feel like a million dollars.

Too many of these and you'll get hold of the wrong end of the bee.

  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 ounce Cuban light rum (Bacardi)

Shake with ice and strain

CANTON

From Trader Vic's Book of Food and Drink, 1946

At first glance you'd think this should be named Chop Suey cocktail instead of Canton, but it's a pretty good go, if you have to.

CARIBBEAN HOT SWIZZLE

From Trader Vic's Book of Food and Drink, 1946

Guaranteed to put the squitch on a stopped-up nose, runny eyes, and a thick head. You can't beat it when you need to work up a good sweat to get rid of a cold. But don't relegate it to your "cure" list. It's good any time.

  • 1/2 lime
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 ounces Jamaica rum (Red Heart or Myers's)
  • Hot water

Squeeze and drop lime in a 12-ounce highball glass; add sugar and mix; then add rum and hot water, and swizzle.

HOT BUTTERED RUM BATTER

From Trader Vic's Book of Food and Drink, 1946

It pains me to drink some of the concoctions offered in the name of hot buttered rum. I generally find little globules of fat floating around in a not too hot drink, served up in a dainty little glass cup that you can down in one swallow and damn near swallow the cup along with it. As I have stressed all along, you can't make anything good unless you take the time to do it properly. Mixing the batter for my hot buttered rum is the initial and final trouble and it will give you the finest drink you ever tasted.

  • 1 pound brown sugar
  • 1/4 pound butter
  • Pinch of salt
  • Spices

Cream the butter and sugar together until smooth, as you would for a cake, then add 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon each of nutmeg, cinnamon, and cloves. If you prefer, you can omit the cinnamon and cloves and, instead, use whole cloves and whole stick cinnamon in each drink as made. Add salt. Use this batter in making the following beverages:

Trader Vic Hot Buttered Rum

Preheat 6 ounce mug with boiling water. Drop 1 heaping teaspoonful of above batter in mug, add 1 1/2 ounces Puerto Rican rum, and fill with hot water.

Northwest Passage

(Immortalized in Kenneth Roberts's book by the same name) 1 heaping teaspoonful batter in 10-ounce goblet. Add 1 ounce Demerara 151 proof, stir and add boiling water and lemon rind.

Coffee Grog

1 teaspoonful batter, 1 strip of lemon rind, 1 strip of orange rind, 1 1/2 ounces Puerto Rican or Cuban rum in preheated 6-ounce mug. Add 1 ounce cream and fill mug with hot coffee.

Hot Buttered Rum Cow

1 teaspoonful batter, 1 1/2 ounces Puerto Rican rum, 1/2 ounce Jamaica rum in preheated mug. Fill with hot milk, stir thoroughly, and serve with grated nutmeg on top.

GIMLET

From Trader Vic's Book of Food and Drink, 1946

The Gimlet comes from the Orient. I'd say it originated in the British Legation years ago, without taking the trouble to delve into its actual history. Anyway, it's served throughout the Far East, from India to the China coast, and is deservedly popular.

  • 1 ounce Rose's lime juice
  • 1 scant teaspoon sugar
  • 1 1/4 ounces gin

Shake with ice and strain

TRADER VIC'S CHAMPAGNE-APRICOT

From Trader Vic's Book of Food and Drink, 1946

Southern Comfort, one of the more recently appreciated liquors, is, next to rum, my favorite and in salute to this fine product I give you my own concoction. It's beautifully subtle and good-looking as hell. If you like to impress your guests, you can knock their eyes out with this one and after three they should be ready for anything. Make a note to serve this the next time you entertain an important client or a tough customer.

Freeze a can of whole, peeled apricots in the cube tray of your refrigerator—an apricot in each cube. I mention this first so you won't start to make the drink and discover you're not ready.

  • 1 whole peeled frozen apricot
  • 1 ounce Southern Comfort
  • 1 teaspoon shaved ice
  • Chilled champagne

Place the frozen apricot in a chilled champagne glass; pour over it the Southern Comfort; add the shaved ice and fill the glass with champagne.

SCARLETT O'HARA

From Trader Vic's Book of Food and Drink, 1946

This is such a pretty little noggin, in addition to tasting good, that I just couldn't resist sticking it in here. And before we leave the Southern Comfort department (no, I haven't bought any stock in the company) I suggest you try it in Collinses and rickeys for delicious drinks.

  • 1 1/2 ounces Southern Comfort
  • 1 ounce cranberry juice (Ocean Spray)
  • Dash of fresh lime juice
  • Cracked ice

Shake with ice and strain

Whiskey Cocktail

From How To Mix Drinks or The Bon-Vivant's Companion, 1862

Shake with ice and strain
