Anecdotes
Adam Kanter: "The Mutiny On The Bounty was an experiment for a cocktail competition I was entering for Beam.  It was a 'mystery bin' event sponsored by Beam (Cruzan Rums) and Bai5, a low-cal juice drink targeting bars for mixology.  This drink was meant to be a base for whatever the mystery ingredients were. I figured they couldn't be too far off.  Boy was I wrong!  Thirty minutes before the event, 20 secret ingredients were unveiled. Items like fish oil, pickled peppers, eggs, mango puree, garlic, figs, and a variety of other Indian-related ingredients were selected from the kitchen of an Indian restaurant.  Needless to say, I couldn't quite do this drink (which used the Mai Tai as inspiration). After coming in 2nd for my Cinnamon-Mango Lassi, I returned to Rum Bar to celebrate my loss. We made the Mutiny On The Bounty (which had no name until then) for all the people who came to cheer me on.  My bartender made over 30 before the night was over.  It had to go on the menu!"
