Two Thursdays ago after a shift at work, I turned to Trader Vic's 1946 Book of Food & Drink and returned to the Shingle Stain. I had passed over this recipe before due to the name, but I gave in due to Vic's plea, "Now don't take a shingle off the roof. This is really good. No fooling." Moreover, I figured that it was a good recipe to break in one of my new purchases at the Boston Shaker store's tiki sale.
