Call for Submissions: MxMo LXIV—Tiki!

Call for Submissions: MxMo LXIV—Tiki!


Monday, February 20th, 2012 will be the 64th Mixology Monday. I’ll be hosting it here at the Pegu Blog, and since February is Tiki Month in these parts, We’ve decided that the theme shall be TIKI!

The Tiki scene, like classic cocktails in general, is reviving nicely these days. The lush, decadent marriage of tropical flavors and exotic kitsch carries us away to a better, less dreary place. Please join in and add your words, images, and offerings to the Tiki Gods on the 20th. Since Tiki is more than just the drinks, feel free to post on whatever Tiki subject floats your outrigger canoe. I suspect most of you will want to offer up delectable drinks, but feel free to wax eloquent on aloha shirts, exotica music, decor, garnishes, food or whatever else moves you to enter the Tiki spirit!

As with most Mixology Mondays, the procedure is easy:

  • Write up your exotic journey and post it to your blog or on eGullet, etc., on or before February 20th, 2012.
  • If you are currently blogless, drop me a line, and I’ll set you up an author account and you can post your offering to the gods right here. If you don’t want to figure out how, you can even email me the text and pictures, if any, and I’ll post it. But please do it early!
  • Be sure to include a link back to this post, and to the Mixology Monday site. Also include the regular MxMo logo, or you can use this thumbnail-sized version of the MxMo: Tiki logo at the top of this post. (You can steal the full-sized pic above if you like, too)
  • When your post is done, add a comment to this post right here and/or email me the link at D o u g (at) C o c k t a i l c a p e r s . c o m.
  • Check back to the home page here after a day or so to see all the glorious results.

Aloha, Y’all!

    Thanks for hosting this MxMo event, Doug. The recent drought has made me sad and this is a great theme to come back to.

    I’m going to give this a try. I only started adventuring in the cocktail world about 2 years ago. I have even less experience in tiki land. I have no experience at all in creating drinks. But I love challenges and this sounds fun… so hopefully the faithful will forgive me for what I do here.

    That’s boss, Doug!

    Maybe I’ll have to turn myself into a … garnish and decor blogger.

    😉

    Dagreb,

    Beware Garnish Blogging! One day you think it’s a little silly to be doing it, the next… you’re Kaiser Penguin.

    Mahalo, Doug ~

    Thanks for hosting this month. I had every intention of not writing a damn thing until I got back from my bourbonic Kentucky adventures next week, but you’ve prompted me to finally make those Mai Tai jellies that’ve been squatting on my mind like an octopus these last few months.

    http://matthew-rowley.blogspot.com/2012/02/mixology-monday-mai-tai-jellies.html

    Along the way, I learned why my gin & tonics (and only my gin & tonics — not, say, my tiki drinks) glow in the dark of certain night clubs. Enjoy!

    We’re joining today’s party with a few tips on how to turn that most Tiki of all fruits into a viable drinking vessel. And, of course, we’re including a few recipes for the perfect drinks to fill the void. Now, pass that pineapple!

    http://www.slammie.com/atomicgrog/blog/2012/02/20/what-says-tiki-better-than-a-drink-served-in-a-pineapple/

    Glad to be of service. Mahalo!

  24. Hey Doug!

    Our post for MxMo is a delicious take on the Mai Tai, the UAI TAI.
    Give it a try sometime!

    The English version can be found here:

    When our servers recover from the usual Carnaval hangover the Portuguese version will be here:

    Thank you very much for hosting.

    I came up with a new drink, as well as posted a couple I made for TDN’s a while back that fit the tiki bill.

    Thanks for hosting!

    MxMo post wrapped up at 11:13pm? I’m a freakin’ over-achiever!

    Here’s my post: the Trade Wind Cocktail. Yes, it’s made with gin, and yes, it’s served in a cocktail glass. Sometimes tiki plays that way!

    Thanks for hosting!
