Completing The Grog Log ~ Day 1

The journey of 78 drinks begins with a single cherry…well, at least mine did.

Hey everyone! This is Bella, the Luna half of Pierce and Luna, and I’m going to take you along on my alcoholic adventure to completing the famous Grog Log at Tonga Hut in North Hollywood. Bradley completed his log and earned induction into the “prestigious” Loyal Order of the Drooling Bastard in March 2017. At that time I was about 5 months into my first try at the log. You are given one year from the date of sign up to finish all the drinks on the list and I, shamefully, EPICALLY, failed. I think I only got through 25 of them.

But this time will be different!

…she proclaimed, fist high in the air. This time I will be triumphant and you’re going to be with me for every drink. My second go at the Grog Log started on March 14, 2018.

I began with a Blue Hawaii because vodka is my goddess. Throw in some Blue Curacao and pineapple juice and you’ve got yourself a sweet and simple drink. Then comes the cream to laden this puppy down! Overall, it’s quite yummy, but sits heavily and is filling. Probably not the BEST way to start off a night of drinking, but lovely if you’re going for just one or looking to knock yourself out for the night! Bradley said: “S’alright. Nothing special.”

I decided to follow with dealer’s choice. With all the power at her finger tips, Lisa Marie decided to serve me up a Mango Cooler. This drink followed in the vodka vein but added Cointreau, and juices, including orange, lime, and mango nectar. It was so fresh, it asked for my number the moment it hit the table. It’s funky citrus aftertaste definitely ruins it’s chances at a second date though. Try it! You may love it, if you’re into that sort of thing. Bradley said: “Vodka!” (He may have been drunk when giving this review)

“We’ve only just begun…”

So that’s the first two off my list of 78! Well…technically three because the Mai Tai is checked off as a freebie. Let’s face it, if you’ve never had a Mai Tai, you’re a sad excuse for a tiki drink imbiber!!!! Okay, not really, but seriously, get on that ASAP because they are delish.

I’ll be back with plenty more in the weeks to come!
