The Loyal Order of the Drooling Bastard

The Tonga Hut has created the Loyal Order of the Drooling Bastard to commemorate the art of the cocktail. Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from 4pm to 8pm, Kelly "Hiphipahula" Reilly pours the incredibly complicated and delicate recipes from the "Grog Log." Of course you can also request one any time you visit.

The "Grog Log" by Jeff "Beachbum" Berry has become the bible of exotic tropical drinks (Tiki drinks). Berry spent years tracking down the original recipes from long gone Tiki temples across mid-century America. Many of these cocktail recipes were thought to be lost to time. But the "Grog Log" has resurrected them along with the world's enthusiasm for a well crafted exotic drink.

If you accept the challenge of the Bastard, you must finish every cocktail in the "Grog Log" (at your own pace of course). Once you do, you are immortalized with your own plaque at the Tonga Hut. Several have taken the challenge and a few have already finished their alcoholic quest.

Are you up to the challenge?
