I had intended last year’s Tiki Month to be a one-off event, a singular opportunity to explore one of cocktailia’s most treasured niches. But as things get colder and more grumpy around here, with no vacation in sight, I find I have no choice. Light the torches, sound the drums, don the flowered short, and let’s get our Tiki on!
Throughout February (with a few detours into regular cocktailia as needed), I’ll be exploring the ineffable phenomenon that is Tiki. We’ll look at recipes (of course), personalities (old and new), apparel, and paraphernalia. Load up on fruit, lay in the rum, and come with me on a voyage through the warm southern waters of the mythical Pacifibbean.
There will be dancing girls.
