Wine

Put a burst of the tropics in your daily life with these classic and contemporary Tiki cocktails. Best exemplified by the mighty rum-based Mai Tai and Zombie drinks, Tiki Cocktails includes 200 summery concoctions complemented by cute, retro illustrations throughout, making it a fun gift book.

Tiki bars and cocktails first burst onto the scene in the 1930s with the arrival of the first Polynesian-themed bar and restaurant Don the Beachcomber, in Hollywood. This was the beginning of the contemporary tiki bar culture we still see today. Exemplified by the elaborately decorative, mostly rum-based, tropical cocktails (think cocktail umbrellas, hollowed-out pineapples and coconuts) and over-the-top decoration brighter than a Hawaiian shirt, tiki has endured. Why? Quite simply. these are classic cocktails that have lasted because they taste so damn delicious - and can instantly evoke summer with every sip (through an elaborately curled straw).
