Tiki cocktails

This blog post contains advertisement

I enjoy crafting Tiki cocktails with all kinds of flavour combinations, as they are vibrant, fresh and fruity. Tiki cocktails are often served over crushed ice, which makes them ice cold and refreshing.

I absolutely love to experiment with Tiki garnish. The term “less-is-more” should not be used whilst garnishing a tiki cocktail. Go wild, have fun and enjoy!

You can use all kinds of spirits for your Tiki cocktails, however Rum is obviously the most used base spirit. In this post, I will display some Tiki recipes with different spirits.


Glass straw

Many of my tiki cocktails are enjoyed with an eco friendly glass straw from Surfsidesips. I truly recommend this product, and by using (THIS LINK) you get 20% off at checkout.
