Fog Cutter - based on an Andres Bumatay carving - manufactured by Tiki Farm - designed by Sven Kirsten

a.k.a. Bumatay Fogcutter in 0 collections

From Sven Kirsten:

"The FOG CUTTER is the newest addition to the Kirsten Kollection from Tiki Farm. This mug is the culmination of FOUR aspects that are near and dear to me in Tiki culture: 1.) - Tiki apartment archeology! ...the Fog Cutter mug is based on a one-of-a-kind Tiki still standing at the 1962 Kona Pali apartments in Granada Hills. 2.) - It was carved by one of my favorite Tiki carvers, Andres Bumatay, who had a very unique style and I have pictured this, his statue, in 'The Art of Tiki'. 3.) - Ever since I imported Spanish Tiki mugs in 2006 I wanted to design a mug that uses the dry ice effect. And last but not least, its name not only refers to the fog effect it can produce, 4.) ...but also to my favorite cocktail mixed by Tony Ramos, when Jeff Berry and I were frequenting the bar at Madame Wu's in the 1990s."

Fog Cutter Cocktail:

1 oz Brugal White Rum, 1/2 oz Bombay Sapphire Gin, 1/2 oz Chalfonte Brandy, 1/2 oz sweet and sour mix (half fresh lemon juice and half simple syrup will suffice), 2 dashes simple syrup, 1/4 oz Cherry Heering float on top

Flash blend all ingredients except float with 3/4 cup of crushed ice and then add float on top.
