Hello? Anyone still there? OK, so it’s been awhile since I posted. What can i say, things have been crazy at work, and I fell into a big hole of endless work. It’s still not over, but I figured that there’s no time like the present to get back to the blog. So last year, a good friend invited us over to his place for a Lost season premiere party. Sushi, BBQ pork, and to top it off, a flaming tiki drink. To say that it made an impression was an understatement.
So, in honor of the season premiere of Lost, I decided that a celebratory tiki drink was in order. To help me decide, I wandered over to Tiki Drinks and Indigo Firmaments and decided to try out Craig’s Rum Barrel recipe. Because, you know, a massive consumption of alcohol will help you understand Lost. Riiight….

L said: ”Whooooooo, that’s strong!” Yep, it was. And I can authoritatively say, Lost still doesn’t make sense. However, I can say that this was a good drink.
