OK, this isn’t strictly Tiki, but it is strictly awesome.
And it has three different liquors. And smoke. And a skull. And wild garnishes. And magic. So I’m running it during Tiki Month anyway, just as a reminder of how magnificently (yet appropriately) over the top the craft bar school of bartending can get too.
Also, because Max is one of the first bartenders who read this blog back in the day and took the time to write to me about it.
Exit question: What the hell is the smoke, and is it a flavorant for the drink, or just a flourish?
