The Tiki Drinking Guide: Recipes and bars

Post by Rye and Coke »

It was my goal for 2020 to come up with a tiki drink recipe I could easily make and it took a global pandemic and the apocalypse to finally figure one out.

Named after the bluestress and rockabilly goddess Etta James (who's -- if the movie Cadillac Records is even remotely reliable -- drink of choice was gin, but that's besides the point), the At Last celebrates that I finally got one fuckin' right.

The At Last
2 part dark rum
1 part blanco tequila
Pineapple Mango juice
Orange Juice
Grenadine
2 dashes of Orange Angostura bitters
Plenty of Ice

Just add ingredients with desired proportions and stir. Add dashes of bitters afterwards, on top, for aromatics. Garnish with an orange wheel and pineapple chunk if need be.

If anyone else has a tiki drink idea, add them on. I have this awesome tiki glass that I'm just dying to put use to now that I have a recipe.

I have 4 1/2 favorite tiki bars:

Latitude 29, New Orleans
Frankie's Tiki Room, Las Vegas
Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar, Disneyland Hotel & Resort
Tonga Hut, Los Angeles and Palm Springs

Here's the "half" It's a strange place that I love. A Mexican family owns and operates an Italian restaurant whith a first rate Whiskey bar. From May thru September, they have a very, very good Tiki drink program. The problem is that it's missing the ambiance of the other places.

I wish there was a way to search for tiki bars in your area. Maybe there is and I just have to put some effort in and research.

There was a bar that was close to a tiki, but I'd call it more of an Island Bar. It was the same concept of heavy boozy rum-based drinks and came with a patio. I looooved that spot. It was a great bar, but no one ever went to it so it went under. Now it's a weird Jamaican food/bar spot that's way over priced. I took Jack and Coke there for lunch once and when I got the bill I wanted to punch someone in the teeth.

Do any of you drunkards enjoy tiki drinks? I've really gotten into them in the last dozen years or so. Yes, they tend to the one or maybe two to a customer, but if you like them, post your favorite recipes here

The Painkiller is a pretty standard drink found on most Tiki Bar menus.

2 ounces dark or navy rum
4 ounces pineapple juice
1 ounce orange juice
1 ounce cream of coconut
Pineapple wedge, garnish
Grated nutmeg, garnish

Regarding Tiki drinks, I am hampered by my total abhorrence of anything involving coconut. To me, it smells bad, tastes worse.

Well then, you would probably enjoy a Tiki Akua. Another standard Tiki drink.

Should any of you make it to the Bay area, the best Tiki bar is Forbidden Island in Alameda, and when you want to move on, hit up Swell across the street
