This drink is made differently in many locations, including the Donn Beachcomber's own locations (circa 1953). However club soda was a late edition added by Jeff Berry in his book vs. the original recipe which called for a blender and crushed ice.
This WWI-era cocktail is what most would consider the Long Island Iced Tea of Tiki as designed by Trader Vic. Vic said this drink doesn't cut the fog as much as it creates one.
Circa 1953. Like almost every tiki drink on the planet, this recipe has gone through mutations over the last 50+ years.
By Don Beachcomber circa 1941. Snow cone design by barman Tony Ramos (taught to Jeff Berry in the 1990s). Tony Ramos created the tiki drink the "Hawaiian Eye" as the cast members of the show took over the bar 4 to 5 nights in a row after filming scenes in Waikiki.
The Scorpion or "Scorpion Bowl" for the full size, is one of Trader Vic's most popular cocktail recipes, from around 1972.
A very generic "tiki drink", well balanced, good citrus to rum ratio that's not too sweet, not too dry. But, isn't memorable on complex flavors, good base for a new-aged tiki drink.
