There’s a reason Tiki lounges are the rage among those in the know. They’re filled with cocktails, snacks and ice cold tropical drinks. What isn’t to love?
If you are thinking of one day poolside like, then you need to throw a budget-friendly tiki party. These Tiki parties will give your guests a taste of what one is missing in the “serious” tiki.
Bringing the Beach to the Swimsuit Area!
When setting out, you may want to start with an umbrella. You can opt for a vintage beach umbrella, but go the extra mile and get one made of stone. Then give your guests a tiki-inspired beach theme and leave them to find their way. The strings of succulents will add to the tropical theme and will still be there to remind them of the beach.
There are a lot of classic tiki drinks to have on your table and there are drinks you can also make at home, too. Depending on your guests’ tastes, you may choose to use housemade sours, lite tiki drinks, and even classic tiki drinks (Cocktails like the Mai Tai and Bellini are also great ways to use classic tiki drinks). Some ideas are using Dark and Stormy, which should cost you about $5 a glass, but you can throw a party that includes $250 worth of freebies from Liquor iQ Plus by Vivino (worth the price of one glass).
Cocktails by the Bottle
For those wishing to serve drinks that can be served a few at a time in a tiki-theme party, you can make a simple mix of vodka and fresh lime, meaning one bottle is almost always enough. If you’re looking for something more elaborate, one can customize your drinks (for example, using a protein shake, adding fruit, fruit juice, pineapple juice, adding crushed ice and more) to your guests’ tastes.
Glow-in-the-dark cocktails is a modern day way to drink that requires nothing more than the simple ingredients found in a low-cost bottle of vodka. Try these simple recipes and remember that if the liquor’s in the bottle, why not drink it!
The chocolate cocktail isn’t in the “tiki-diner” but you can get creative with it. Here are the easy recipes:
