There is a strong tradition in Japan of celebratory parties post major events. I think these are called Uichage. We had a big one last night. A group of us organized two concerts last week and so in celebration my apartment hosted a major bust.
The event focused around Roaring Pyramids and non traditional Okinawan cocktails.
Roaring pyramids are self explanatory and always a lot of fun.
We make tropical drinks. Left over from the concert was a bouquet of orchids, individual flowers from which became the crowning glory of each cocktail.
Here is the recipe. In big glass put pineapple, kiwi fruit, a whole banana,some lime, lots of ice, a serious slug of awamori, top it up with grapefruit or orange juice and then garnish with rose petals and orchid. You drink it then eat the banana. Not sure how this would go down on Islay but you know, different drinks for different geography.
I have to ask people to leave at 2:00 because I am 60.
Great group of people!
