Seattle Rum Drops: Tacoma Cabana's Sea Quest Of The Unknown Hippocampus

The morning chill is present and rain falls from the sky; but one must recall, Summer doesn't officially end for another two weeks. A double check of the calendar confirms it is still September and despite recent memories of warmth, the sun has forgotten to shine here in the Northwest. No problem, as they say in Jamaica, for another sort of tropical heat is now being served at our favorite local Tiki spot, Tacoma Cabana. Their newest menu cocktail, Sea Quest Of The Unknown Hippocampus, has the contrasting ability to both unearth pleasant memories and subdue any unwanted ones. Its curious name has meaning, but let's just call it 'Sea Quest' for short, a more palatable title for the short term memory. Jason Alexander, co-owner and its creator, tells us the recipe was serendipitous. The first rift of ingredients used needed no further modifications. As he makes our Sea Quest, he mentions how a recent radio show discussed the hippocampus, notable for its role in memory. Jason recounted it was Latin for seahorse - the upper body of a horse and the lower body of a fish. Hence the fitting Tiki mug and brilliant name. Awesome! If you have tasted the memorable Rhum Damoiseau 110 proof or Rum Fire (126 proof), then you know to expect a incredibly aromatic and flavorful split base. Properly balanced and telling, one sip of Sea Quest unveils a flavor load driven by the Jamaican thoroughbred Rum Fire and illuminated by the charms of the Guadeloupe Sun-filled Rhum Damoiseau 110 proof. Genepy's floral and herbal notes compliment the agricole while rounding out the elemental sweet, citrus and spice blend. During Martin & Rebecca Cate's recent visit to launch their amazing new book, Smuggler's Cove: Exotic Cocktails, Rum and the Cult of Tiki, the following accolade came after tasting the Sea Quest.

  3. Once you've taken in the unique décor at these New York venues, the hardest part is to decide whether to go upstairs or downstairs. With a large open floor plan, you'll find bars on both levels, and someone will always come by to serve you matter where you decide to hang out.
