The 10 Best Tiki Cocktail Recipes to Try in 2021

About the only thing more to a classic Tiki cocktail than its sheer number of ingredients is the folklore surrounding the recipe.

A treasure chest scooped up from the bottom of the South Pacific, Tiki began as a small community of like-minded experimenters looking to create something akin to vacation in a glass (or mug). It’s since become a lifestyle, a wormhole down which one can fall a long, long way, learning everything from the merits of homemade orgeat to complementary rum types.

Some of it is over the top, full of kitsch and even, regrettably, flirting with cultural appropriation. But its core elements, the drinks, are mostly well intentioned and layered, pulled from early 20th century recipes concocted at some of the most stylish hotel bars and drinking establishments in the world (at least at the time).

Don the Beachcomber (aka Donn Beach) kicked it all off, and since then it’s been the likes of Trader Vic and Co. The newest Tiki guard is commanded by the likes of Martin Cate and incredible bars like Smuggler’s Cove, Lost Lake, Hale Pale, and more. They are making complex drinks that whisk you off to a warmer place. And they all depend on some classic Tiki recipes, like the ones below.
