Fog Cutter Challenge 2015

FC
This past weekend challenge was the #fogcutterchallenge2015 ...and of course I want to participate!!! At this time I made 2 different twists on two different versions of this classic tiki drink.
    The Fog Cutter is a blend of rum, brandy and gin...it's the Long Island Ice Tea of the tiki drinks, created by Trader Vic, he wrote about his creation "After two of these, you won't ever see the stuff". This was his third most famous drink.
fc3 For my first recipe, I used his 1950 revised version called Samoan fog Cutter: 2oz lemon juice, 1oz orange juice, 1/2oz orgeat, 1/2oz brandy, 1/2oz gin, 1 1/2oz light Puerto Rican rum and a float of 1/2oz cream sherry. I changed the light Puerto rican rum for Lost Spirits Polynesian Inspired Rum and I called it Polynesian Fogcutter.

My second recipe was a twist of the Fog Cutter served on Bali Hai At The Beach in New Orleans circa 1970: 2oz orange juice, 1 1/2oz lime juice, 1 1/2oz sugar syrup, 1oz light Puerto Rican rum, 1oz Dark Jamaican rum, 1oz Brandy, 1oz Gin, 1/2tsp almond extract.

At this I didn’t use brandy and gin and I only use rums, yes!it’s a rummy Fog Cutter called Fog Rummer.
