Today we bring you a fun proposal to celebrate the holidays with your family and friends. You have probably seen Hawaiian-style cocktails, with ingredients such as coconut, pineapple, passion fruit and extravagant adornments.

We are referring to Tiki mixology, which is a style that originated in the 1930s in the United States. It was inspired by Polynesian and Hawaiian culture and is characterized by using exotic ingredients such as tropical fruits and liquors such as rum and curaçao.

Whether you are going to enjoy Christmas and the end-of-year celebrations with heat or with cooler temperatures, Tiki mixology is a fun and original option to liven up gatherings with friends.

Some of these cocktails have catchy names such as Mai Tai, Zombie, Aku Abu, Doctor Funk.

Today, we will learn about one of the most well-known Tiki cocktails, the famous Mai Tai, which originated at a bar called Trader Vic’s in Oakland, California.
