10 drinks of the island: Voodoo Punch Bucket packs a punch for two (recipe, video, photos)

ORANGE BEACH, Alabama --'s inside look at 10 tropical drinks continues with a tropical concoction made for two -- if you order it at Tacky Jacks. Tacky Jacks is whipping up a spell-casting rum based drink called the Voodoo Punch Bucket. Yep, it's served in a little bucket, but you can make it in anything. The drink was prepared by Dixie, who enjoys watching Disney movies, practicing her roller derby skills and surfing.

Recipe for Voodoo Punch Bucket:

Twist: Dixie used Cruzat but you can use any brand of flavored rum. Use large plastic cup so that two people can enjoy over appetizers.

My take: I'll say it flat out. This is for 2 people. It's the strongest drink we've done thus far. Dixie added that she rarely sells more than one to a single person. I suggest Tacky Jacks gator bites ($14.99) while sharing this drink with your significant other.

Potency: High. It contains 6 ounces of 48 proof booze. Just toss the car keys into the bay or call a cab listed below.

Taxi services running Orange Beach: Blue Dolphin Taxi 251-981-1700, A Better Cab 251-981-7433, A Ms. Mary Tax Service, 251-981-9400.

Marinated Grilled Artichokes

1. Remove any discolored leaves and the small leaves at base of artichokes. Trim stems even with base of artichokes. Cutting straight across, slice 1 inch off tops of artichokes and discard tops. Cut off points of remaining leaves with scissors. Rinse artichokes with cold water.

2. Pour 1 inch of water into a 4-quart Dutch oven and place steamer basket over it, keeping the bottom of the basket from touching the water. Put artichokes in basket. Cover tightly. Heat to boiling reduce heat. Steam 20 to 25 minutes or until bottoms are tender when pierced with knife. Cool.

3. Cut artichokes in half lengthwise scrape out the hairy choke and any smaller purple-tipped leaves with a spoon. Put artichokes in a large re-sealable plastic bag.

4. Put remaining ingredients, except for the oil, in food processor, and process for 1 minute. With the processor running, slowly pour in the oil through the feed tube and process until emulsified. Pour oil mixture into the plastic bag, over the artichokes. Seal the bag and gently "shake" it so that artichoke halves are thoroughly coated with marinade be careful not to break apart the artichokes. Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.

5. When ready to grill, heat your Memphis Grill to 350° with the Indirect Savorizer® in place. Place artichokes cut-side down on grate and grill for 5-7 minutes. Turn artichokes over and grill for another 3-4 minutes or until the tips are lightly charred.

6. If desired, serve with Herb Butter Sauce: ¼ cup butter, melted, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, 1 small clove garlic, finely chopped, ⅛ teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon dried dill or your favorite herb. Stir all ingredients in small bowl.

Restaurant review: Tommy Bahama, where tropical fare offers a midtown warmup

If Tommy Bahama Restaurant & Bar opened in Bushwick, kids in skinny jeans would adore its irony.

A guitarist near the bar murders '70s pop fossils — Remember "Brandy?"

Singapore Sling, Zombie and other Space Age throwbacks dot the cocktail menu. There's even a groaning, honest-to-God dessert tray.

But on Fifth Ave. in Manhattan, it's all in earnest. Tommy Bahama — the Florida clothing label that sells Key West fantasies to suburban dads — has opened its latest eatery-cum-brand-extension above its midtown East store. There's nary a wink.

We walked in snickering at the golf-pants Margaritaville shtick. But we left won over by exceptional servers, a competent kitchen and surprisingly serious drinks.

Those cocktails get amped up by house-made syrups and fresh juices, so well-balanced libations like a Hibiscus Fizz ($12) — rye, hibiscus syrup, lemon and egg whites — shimmer with flavor. Likewise, vivid citrus and muddled basil in a Grapefruit Basil Martini ($14) deliver tangy, herbaceous jolts.

The menu's not quite as memorable — it's still a corporate kitchen — but decent comfort food's on offer. Beet and goat cheese salad ($9) holds its own against pricier versions at fancier places. It's piled on a long, rectangular plate with arugula, nuts and tame hearts of palm. Beets taste blank, but get vaguely Caribbean notes from papaya seed vinaigrette.

Crunchy wonton shells that hold Ahi tuna tacos ($12.50) gleam with oil, but the ruby-red fish inside is impeccable, and its wasabi crème drizzle are assertive enough to pack a bite. Four of them in an appetizer order easily feed two.

"World Famous" Coconut Shrimp ($16.50) should languish in obscurity. Greasy, syrupy and heavy on dough, it brings back bad childhood memories of oleaginous, Sunday-night Cantonese. Too-sweet papaya-mango chutney could be old-school pineapple sauce. Only cabbage-jicama slaw, popping with citrus, brings the plate to life.

The kitchen warms up with its mains, whose heaping portions guarantee you'll leave with doggie bags. Luscious grilled baby back pork ribs ($29.50) fall off the bone. Our smart, sweet server told us they're slow-roasted in an oven "for hours" before getting bathed in mildly spicy, darkly fruity blackberry brandy barbecue sauce.

With that kind of heat on the plate, insipid mashed potatoes prove a poor companion. A side of Brussels sprouts ($6) makes a better complement, its serving so generous it could double as dinner for vegans.

Swordfish ($28), ordered medium-well, arrives firm and juicy, with sweet grilled miniature carrots as a thoughtful complement. The fish sits on a bed of warm farro salad that's more like succotash, with lima beans and mushrooms. It's heavy and rich, but perfect for a brisk March night.

Tommy Bahama strikes out with the bland, chewy Caribbean-rubbed mahi-mahi ($26). A spicy, spiky coating does its best to disguise diner-quality fish. Overcooked, overly seasoned quinoa makes the whole production a slog.

All is forgiven once that dessert tray appears tableside. A triple chocolate cake ($10) presses pastry, ganache and mousse into a massive, moist slice that stops just this side of treacly. Silky butterscotch pudding ($9.50), made with Dewar's, holds back the sweetness enough to spotlight heady alcoholic undertones. It's irresistible.

Pineapple crème brulée ($9) looks terrific, with caramelized custard inside a hollowed-out pineapple half. But the cream itself lacks texture or egginess, and unrestrained sweetness makes it nearly unbearable after a couple of spoonfuls. Luckily, coffee ($2.95) comes hot and strong to balance it out.

Everything about this place screams Not-New-York, from supersized portions to Ikea-by-the-sea décor. The room, with its big potted plants and pale wood fixtures, mirrors Tommy Bahama's clothes — an iota of rum-punch personality watered down to please Middle America.

It would all be easy to mock if its corporate DNA meant apathetic treatment or careless execution. But an evening here is pleasant, especially in one of the most culinarily bereft zones of midtown. You probably won't see me wearing Tommy Bahama's baggy clothes anytime soon. But you might just catch me upstairs from the Fifth Ave. store, sharing the illusion that waves are crashing outside the window.

13 must-try drinks at Alabama's beaches

If there's a drink that all must try at the beach, then it has to be the bushwacker. Now, many places in Orange Beach and Gulf Shores serve up this frozen delight but clearly having a bushwacker at the Flora-Bama (pictured here) is the most popular place to do it. Expect to pay about $7 for a bushwacker around the island. There are several recipes out there for this drink but here is the basic bushwacker recipe: vodka, Dark Crème de Cacao, Kahlúa, vanilla ice cream.

Sure, anybody can make The Shark Attack but only The Hangout will provide the actual shark to the drink. When you come to Gulf Shores this summer, you'll want to belly up to the bar at The Hangout and try their signature drink -- The Shark Attack, $10. It's not high octane but if you like sweet then you'll like this very popular drink. Recipe: Malibu Coconut Rum, pineapple juice, bit of grenadine if to add color.

Bloody Mary island style

Any bartender can whip up you basic bloody mary at the beach, but there's something about folks at the beach who want breakfast and the drink mixed together. Yes, there's a sort of bloody mary war at Pleasure Island right now with some places throwing everything but the kitchen sink in the mix. But perhaps none do it better than Brick and Spoon right now. They add sausage, boiled egg, a block of cheese, bacon, and much more into their bloody mary. Oh yeah, it has vodka, too. Skip breakfast and just go with this concoction you'll pay about $13 for.

Orange Beach Attitude

There's just something about getting a daiquiri and walking around the French Quarter in the Big Easy. If you live down here then it's likely you've done it. The closest you'll get to that experience is a frozen drink at Island Time Daiquiri Bar at The Wharf in Orange Beach. These folks serve up the Orange Beach Attitude, $9. It's a potent mix of Everclear, vodka and some orange goodness. Grab one of these tasty brain freezers and wander along Main Street. It's the classic dreamsicle with an island twist.

You may find yourself in trouble if you don't pace yourself with our next powerful but tasty drink which is aptly called Trouble! Just about bar will make this vodka-based tropical drink but at the Hot Spot Music and Grub, they'll serve it in a bright red tiki cup. But you'll want to have a burger with this bad boy as it's part vodka, gin, coconut rum, and 190 Everclear and a mix of juices, $12. Kick back and enjoy this 32-ounce giant tropical delight but you'll only need one, or you'll find yourself in, well, you know.

This next favorite at the beach could cast a nasty spell on you if you don't proceed with caution. In fact, you'll need two straws and a friend to enjoy the Voodoo Punch Bucket (pictured here at Tacky Jacks, $12.50). As it's name suggests, this tropical beverage is traditionally served in a 32-ounce cup, preferably with a handle. Just about any bar will make it but few have the awesome cup that Tacky Jack's serves the Voodoo Punch Bucket in. It's banana rum, citrus rum, coconut rum with an equal mix of cranberry and orange juices with a cherry, lemon and lime garnish. Definitely a drink for two.

The Hurricane may have its origins in New Orleans but the famous cocktail is very popular at the Alabama's beaches. And if you're going to order a Hurricane, then you may want to do it at Hurricane Grill in Orange Beach. There, they do the Tropical Hurricane, prepared with guava and mango rums and pineapple and orange juice, garnished with fruit, $10. It's truly a tropical concoction served up in paradise. But it's pretty strong, so order a dozen wings to ease this drink's effects.

In recent years the Mojito has enjoyed immense popularity. Here at the beach the Lime Mojito is king. It's a simple, Bacardi Rum-base, club soda and Sprite. Garnish with fresh mint and two cherries or half of a lime wheel. And it's one of the most popular drinks at one of the island's most popular bars -- The Gulf in Orange Beach. The cocktail is not super strong, and great to kick back with, especially as we head into the dog days of August at the beach. At The Gulf, the lime Mojito will run $10.50 but is worth it for the view and atmosphere.

Tropical drink in Mason Jar

There's nothing quite like sipping an adult beverage on a hot August day with a view of the water, especially if you're sipping said drink from a Mason jar! There are only a handful of places you can enjoy a cocktail from the classic Mason jar, and Anchor Bar and Grill in Orange Beach is one of them. Now, these folks will pour just about anything in their jars but the Smoked Jalapeno Margarita is the house specialty, $12 (pictured above). It's a traditional top shelf, tropical twist on the classic margarita with a bite to it.

This next drink is very popular with the beach because it is most associated with tiki bar establishments, and so it's fitting the Pleasure Island Tiki Bar serves up plenty of the specialty drink -- Painkiller, $9. A twist on the classi Piña Colada, the Painkiller cocktail is fruity tropical drink that has its origins in the British Virgin Islands but is popular in Pleasure Island. This strong drink uses Pussers rum, coconut cream, orange juice and pineapple juice. Have this cocktail with the view from the Tiki Bar and you'll feel like you're in the Tropics.

This next drink can be made at just about any bar at the beach -- the classic Rum Runner. It may have it's origins in the Florida Keys, but the drink is wildly popular at Gulf Shores. And how it's served can make all the difference. You'll want this drink in a fancy glass as they serve at the Sanbar at San Roc Cay in Orange Beach (pictured here). If you're going to imbibe in one cocktail this summer at the beach, then the timeless Rum Runner is it. As it's name suggests, it's a rum-based drink with dark and light rum, coconut rum, orange topped with pineapple and orange juice. Most places will hit you up for about $13 for the Rum Runner.

➺ma Breeze may be a popular song by Jimmy Buffett and an ode to the Flora-Bama, but it's also a sweet cocktail popular at Lulu's at Homeport in Gulf Shores, the famous establishment owned by Jimmy's sister, Lucy Buffett. This house drinks is prepared with Absolute Ruby Red (or Absolute Citron Vodka), Cruzat Coconut Rum and filled with cranberry juice, $9. Sure, most bartenders can make this drink, but you'll want to have it at Lulu's with a great view of the water. Plus, you never know if Jimmy will walk in.

Brian Kelly | [email protected]

Now, this last drink is a signature at Montego's, but just about anyone can make this tropical drink but beware -- The Castaway could put you overboard. Yes, it's a large drink (most will serve it in a 16-ounce container) but it's heavy in Blue Chair Coconut Rum and Everclear liquor and a mix of fruit juices. Best place to get it is Montego's in Orange Beach (they give you the cup) but just about every bartender in Pleasure Island will make this potent beverage for around $12.

Cheap Cologne For Men At Ross Dress For Less

In terms of the cologne, I am veering off course and suggesting you stick with the name brands. I wouldn’t over pay for the designer brands, but for cologne and perfume I would purchase something reputable. Discount retailers such as Ross Dress For Less and T.J. Maxx offer budget, name brand product lines at discounted prices. I have recently tried Paris Hilton For Men, Tommy Bahama St. Barts Eau de, and a few varieties of the Adidas cologne line. While still more expensive than I would like, at least you won’t smell cheap.
