Tai One On

Tai One On

A simple daiquiri is a great base for playing with new rums and new sweeteners. It's such a straightforward drink that a single change can have a big impact and it's fun (and delicious) to see the difference one substitution makes. You can always use a more complicated cocktail -…
Army Navy Grog

Army Navy Grog

The Army Navy is a classic gin cocktail made with lemon, orgeat and angostura bitters. We had a good one a few weeks back at the Normandie Club in Koreatown a few weeks back, but as orgeat becomes more popular even at non-tiki bars, you'll start to see this drink pop…

El Capitan Hook

We're inspired every time we have a great cocktail, and we definitely started to feel inspired when we visited Highland Park Bowl the other night and enjoyed a few of their cocktails. The drink that inspired this one was one that we ordered while sipping drinks, eating (excellent) pizza and watching our…
Shipwrecked Monk

Shipwrecked Monk

When we make a batch of our pineapple-infused rum, we tend to go through it rather quickly. It makes a fantastic daiquiri, as you might imagine, and is a good way to intensify the flavor of pineapple in some of our favorite tiki drinks. This Shipwrecked Monk offers a unique way…

Pimm’s Aviary

We have a huge list of bookmarked cocktails that have caught our eye over the years. Some, we try right away and others get set aside until we have the time (or, more likely, the correct ingredients on hand ) to give them a go. This cocktail was adapted from…
Berried Treasure

Berried Treasure

There aren't a great number of berry tiki drinks out there (though there are quite a few innovated or recorded by one) and we wouldn't say that it's an essential tiki flavor. That being said, there is no reason that berries can't be incorporated into a tiki cocktail because they go fabulously…
Tiki Thyme

Tiki Thyme

When you think of herbs and tiki drinks, you immediately think of fresh mint. Mint is not only a regular ingredient in tiki cocktails, but it is a standard garnish for all kinds of recipes, including a classic Mai Tai. As tasty as mint is, it isn't the only herb…
