Classic old school Tiki Drink Coktail Recipes: The Q.B. Cooler

Tiki drink recipes: How to make the Q.B. Cooler cocktail.

This tiki cocktail drink dates back to 1937, making it a true tiki classic. The inventor of this classic tiki cocktail is either Don the Beachcomber or Trader Vic, the debate still rages on. Must tend to think it is Donn Beach. This drink is reported to be Don the Beachcombers "Mia Tai". Now it is famous at the legendary Ti, where it is called the Q.B. Kula.

This is a strong drink, with earthy undertones from the Pernod, and Angostura bitters.
