The South Bay Ohana meetups at Dr. Funk in downtown San Jose are currently the 1st Sunday and 3rd Wednesday of each month. This month the theme was March Matchiness, which gave Mrs. Mai Tai and I an excuse to wear this Witchdoctor matching set we bought a couple years ago and designed by Devon Deveraux.

We finally got to try the food at Dr. Funk and found it be pretty good. Service was great as always, even for us with a larger group and some people coming and going.

Come join us at the next meet-up on Sunday April 3.IMG_0607

Unlike the Mai Tai which has a well-established canonical recipe, the Navy Grog does not. There’s the Don the Beachcomber version. There’s the Trader Vic’s version. There are versions that blend key ingredients from both. And then there are places that do something different. This is the Dr. Funk Navy Grog.

Still a heavy cocktail with lots of grapefruit and rum, but it does not lean into the traditional ingredients such as honey or pimento dram. Instead, Dr. Funk introduces a different set of spices including Grapefruit Bitters. It is worth trying and you might even prefer this recipe. IMG_0610
