During this holidays, Tiki Cocktails transports us to Hawaii (27/12/22)

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.

It was born at a time when alcohol was banned in the United States due to excessive consumption, and it was precisely for this reason that these drinks became popular, their fun and colorful appearance managed to deceive the authorities.

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.

The original recipe for the Mai Tai consists of mixing Jamaican rum, curaçao, lime juice, orgeat syrup (a kind of almond syrup) and a touch of grenadine syrup. It is served in a tall glass with ice and is adorned with a slice of pineapple and a cherry.


If you want to make a Mai Tai at home, you can follow this recipe:

  • 2 ounces Jamaican rum
  • 1 ounce curaçao
  • 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/4 ounce orgeat syrup
  • 1/4 ounce grenadine syrup
  • Ice
  • Pineapple slice and cherry for garnish

To prepare the cocktail, mix all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake well. Place ice in a tall glass and pour the mixture into the glass. Garnish with the pineapple slice and cherry and serve immediately.


Tiki mixology is a fun way to transport yourself to an exotic island and enjoy delicious and exotic cocktails. Encourage your friends to throw a Tiki party at home and enjoy a few Mai Tais!
