Tonga Hut created the Loyal Order of the Drooling Bastard to illuminate the history of the Tiki cocktail, the great, the good and the original Beachcomber’s Gold.
Tonga Hut chose, Beachbum Berry’s Grog Log as our quintessential guide. Beachbum Berry’s Grog Log by Jeff “Beachbum” Berry has become the bible of exotic tropical cocktails (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. Luckily Beachbum Berry’s Grog Log has resurrected them along with the world’s enthusiasm for a well crafted exotic libation.
If you accept the challenge of the Drooling Bastard, you must finish every cocktail on the “Grog Log”, 78 if you are counting, within a calendar year. Once fully indoctrinated you will be immortalized with your plaque (of your own making) at the Tonga Hut and a custom pendant.
Commemorate the art of the cocktail with us at Tonga Hut. “Grog Logging” is encouraged early and often. Since many of the recipes from the “Grog Log” are incredibly complicated (read time consuming), “Grog Logging” is not available during special events or after 8pm Friday or Saturday nights. (Truly, it is at the bartender’s discretion always. Thank you for your understanding.)
