Fog Cutter

Vickie Parks

This is tiki cocktail with a definite kick from the varied liquors in it. The drink was created in Hollywood sometime in the 1930s by expert mixologist Tony Ramos, a bartender at the famed Don the Beachcomber Polynesian restaurant. Vic (of Trader Vic's) said of this drink, "Fog cutter, hell after two of these, you won't even see the fog." So I guess the discerning patron should take that to mean a strict limit of two per customer, and call a cab when you've lost count.
