Drink of the Week: Buli-Buli!

Posted By on Fri, Jun 27, 2008 at 10:42 AM


If you’re cheap, broke or a combination of the two, here’s a quick and easy way to Rachael Ray some crappy beer.

I was first introduced to this drink at a place called Primo Patio near At&t Park. The menu promised that the drink, comprised of beer, sugar and lime juice had Cuban origins. I was like, that’s disgusting, let’s order it.

One delicious, empty pitcher later I was forced to drink my words. It’s the perfect ice-cold summer drink, well suited for barbecues and roof top soirées. Here’s the recipe:

2 beers ( Primo Patio recommended Miller Draft, but I used Tecate because I am fancy.)

a lot of ice

four limes

a crapload of sugar

Here is what you should definitely not do: don’t dump an excess amount of sugar into the pitcher after you’ve already mixed the beer, limes, and ice, unless you want the pitcher to uncontrollably vomit forth an unending stream of foaming beer all over your feet, table, floor, couch and kitchen counter. I’m not actually sure what the correct mixing method is, but I finally resorted to spooning the sugar in a little at a time and stirring it in thoroughly before adding more.

Once you’ve finished mixing the Buli-Buli, serve immediately and drink until hollering its name while fist pumping the air passes for witty repertoire.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
