How To Set Up A Bar For Tiki Style Parties
While it may have been a fad years ago, one of the latest trends to make a comeback is tiki culture. It all started as a man's love and passion for all things tropical over 80 years ago and has now become a huge part of food culture all over the world. Anyone looking to turn an outdoor party or barbecue into a fun and exciting experience should consider incorporating a tiki theme. In addition to food, there are a wide array of tiki cocktails that can help create an island experience from anywhere. Here are the most important elements to incorporate into a bar for a tiki based celebration.
The Liquors Of Choice
The single most used liquor in tiki culture is rum, as it is popular in many tropical destinations, and is one of the only forms of alcohol available on some remote islands. Other spirits that are used in tiki drinks are scotch, whiskey, and even tequila. Some bartenders have even been known to use bourbon and brandy liquors to help create drinks that have a fresh and tropical flavor palette.
Fruit Of All Sorts
No tropical drink is complete without fruit. Most drink recipes call for orange, pineapple, or grapefruit juice, and some individuals choose to make a drink even more visually appealing and flavorful by incorporating sliced fruit in the glass or along the rim. The trick is layering the alcohol and fruit juice in the glass so each liquid can be easily identified until the person drinking it chooses to stir them together.
Don't Forget The Umbrella
One of the most iconic items in tiki cocktails is the signature umbrella that gets placed in the glass at the very end. Most are set on a small toothpick and are lined with fruit slices before being placed in the drink. This is what gives the drink it's tropical appearance, and will turn it into a cocktail that can turn any event into a memorable celebration.
Make any party more fun by giving it a tiki theme and serving fancy fruity cocktails. It will help create a tropical vibe that will make any social event more fun and exciting. Stock up on the liquors, fruit, and drink decorations mentioned above, and any bar will be ready to serve the most delicious tropical drinks imaginable.
