Well, we finally received our Docs WOOHOO!! They were delayed do to the wrong zip code and address, but everything else is in order. I will have to call Celebrity to record our captain's number. We celebrated with dinner and an Mia-tie! Now the cruise feels real.
Wahooo for you, too! I was so excited to get mine but I had to find the local FEDEX facility and that was an experience. I'm only 3 miles away but it's in a Corporate Center I couldn't figure out how to get in there or back out!!!
The whole time I'm thinking, they have my docs, they have my docs, have to find them, etc.!!! Susan will be cruisin'
Mgram I will make it to Hawaii even if I have to row myself there. <G> Carole I am packing the suite of armor. Lisa please don't turn green remember I will be your informant the truth and nothing but the whole truth.
Congratulations, SeaFan. It's time now for some serious grousing and some very pointed hate mail. This is the first of three cruises in a row you and Daryl are taking without us. What did we do? Grumble, grumble.....
The creator of this particular version is not known, but was allegedly used at the Honolulu Sheraton Moana Surfrider. The original Mai Tai was created by Victor J. Bergeron in 1944 by combining 2 ounces of 17-year-old J. Wray Nephew rum with juice from one fresh lime, 1/2 ounce each of Holland DeKuyper Orange Curacao and French Garnier Orgeat, and 1/4 ounce Rock Candy Syrup. The mixture is hand shaken and poured over shaved ice with a fresh mint garnish and 1/2 the lime rind.
Bergeron used the recipe in his Trader Vic's starting in 1948, and later introduced the Mai Tai to Hawaii in 1953 in the Royal Hawaiian, Moana and Surfrider Hotels. This version no doubt derives from that 1953 origin.
1 oz. Royal Hawaiian Light Rum, or any light rum.
1 oz. Demerara Rum (Lemon Hart 86)
1 oz. Orange Curacao (Bols)
Dash French Orgeat Syrup
Dash Rock Candy Syrup
Juice of half a Lime
1/4 oz. Lemon Juice
Fill large (14 ounce) glass with ingredients, then add crushed ice and orange juice. Garnish with mint leaves and perhaps fruit on a skewer.
Divetex and Cruisecam the other two we are taking are short ones so they don't count. You did not do anything but provide us with a ton of laughs!! WE LOVE YOU BOTH!! You could join us on the short cruises but then we won't remember what we ate again. <g>
OK Terrie and Linda are dancing now too! Docs came last night and I danced so long I forgot to post. Thanks to all of you who chanted for us! And thanks to all you hate mailers, I am getting a real kick out of those posts. 10 work days left for me and I'm on my way. Makes it real with docs in hand.
