Aloha!

I'm Sarah from outside Atlanta! I have been a casual tiki-phile via Disney for a while and then was introduced to the amazing Ohana living in Atlanta. S.O.S. and Trader Vics are continually in rotation (yay $6 Mai Tais at Vics on Thursdays), as well as Tiki Tango. I have learned skills in mixing, creating syrups, and found creativity I didn't know I had when it comes to drink making. Who knew I loved passion fruit with all my heart?

What I love most about Tiki: the escapism. I love when a bar takes that to heart. I like feeling transported and immersed in the fantasy. The postcards and swizzles. The mugs and glassware. It's all so dreamy!

Can't wait to explore this island a little more!
Aloha

Aloha! Disney / The Enchanted Tiki Room, is definitely a fun gateway drug into the world of tiki.

Tell us more about these syrups and drinks you've been making!

Syrups I've made include a gingerbread spice, a walnut orgeat, and a variety of fruit syrups from frozen pulps.
I fully embraced figuring out a hot buttered rum that I enjoy. My trick was using pineapple juice and water as the base, plus fresh ground nutmeg and allspice.
I also started using Cachaca in place of Agricole in some recipes, and really like the variation in my mai tai. Plus, my wallet appreciates it as well!

Hmmm, Cachaca instead of Agricole, I will pull out some Novo Fogo and try that tonight.

Thank you.

Alooooha! Welcome to the port! The Enchanted Tiki Room was probably the first thing that started my love for all things Tiki...It blew my 7 year old mind! We are lucky enough to live a couple blocks from the Mai Kai and consider that our Home Bar...

Definitely wishing I was in Florida for some gallon jugs of Mai Kai beverage. I still love sitting through an Enchanted Tiki room performance. I randomly break out into song lately, with that song being prominent lately.
