The Saturn

The Saturn is one of my favourite drinks from Jeff Berry's latest book on Tiki drinking: Beachbum Berry Remixed. Gin isn't usually at the top of the list for a Tiki drink, but it works wonderfully with the Falernum and the array of other flavours in the mix. I'm amazed its been paid such little attention by the online Tiki community since Berry brought it back from its sixties origins. Although those who have blogged about the Saturn have been pretty complimentary!

Creator of the Saturn is Popo Galsini, one of the cocktail luminaries featured on MSPs new Cocktail Experts page. This is certainly a work in progress but we've now got a decent foundation to develop this into a useful reference resource for the site. I'm really keen to build Mix Shake and Pour with lots of cross referencing and links to all the best cocktail information out there on the web. The creators of all those fabulous drinks are obviously a key piece of the cocktail puzzle. So who is missing? Be they cocktail legends or influential bloggers, who do you think should be added to the list?
