Tiki Cocktail Party
Shamelessly kitschy, a successful island-themed cocktail party deserves only the finest cuisine and libations. From candy-colored drinks to a tasty grilled shrimp recipe, here are terrific recipes for a Tiki party.
The origin of this classic rum cocktail is one of the great debates in tikidom. Both Ernest Beaumont-Gantt (a.k.a. "Donn Beach," the father of tiki culture) and Trader Vic founder Victor Bergeron lay claim to its invention. This version borrows from Beaumont-Gantt's recipe, which adds dashes of Pernod and Angostura bitters for complexity.
