Autumn Daiquiri

Autumn Daiquiri

Most people don't really think of daiquiris as being a fall cocktail, so it was a bit surprising to see a drink called the Autumn Daiquiri on the pages of Death & Co., as we flipped through the newest addition to our cocktail book collection. The drink doesn't use an specifically…
Tiki Tasting: Drillaud Blue Curacao

Tiki Tasting: Drillaud Blue Curacao

We recently had a friend tell us that s/he (we don't want to name names!) hated Blue Hawaiians. Now, that may not be your favorite tropical drink, but surely it is not hate-able - even if it is blue. The problem in this case was that the only Blue Hawaiians…

Stone Cold Ice Tray

Stone Cold Ice Tray

The Moai of Easter Island are figures that are instantly recognizable to just about everyone, and they're a popular figure for tiki drawings, carvings and sculptures. We have quite a few moai inspired mugs that we regularly make drinks in, but recently we picked up this Stone Cold Ice Tray…
Pineapple Ti Punch

Pineapple Ti Punch

A basic Ti' Punch is probably not going to be very sweet. It is a simple drink that is really a way to highlight flavors in your favorite rhum agricole. We suspect that some ti' punch lovers are purists who want to keep the drink simple, however we know from…
