So wrong or so right?

by Crystal Cook

I am not entirely sure if it’s the umbrella or these fabulous (and I do mean fabulous!) ceramic tiki tumblers, but with one sip, you’re instantly transported to a tropical paradise. (Ok, who are we kidding? It’s totally the Mai Tai’s that do the transporting!) But seriously folks, what do you think? Do my vintage tiki tumblers make you want to break out your ukulele and burst into song?  Or do you just think that these tiki’s may just have the Brady Bunch curse?

P.S. Regardless of what you think of my tumblers, you should try a refreshing Mai Tai this weekend – recipe below!

  • 4 parts dark rum (2 oz.)
  • 4 parts light rum (2 oz.)
  • 2 parts Curacao (1 oz.)
  • 2 parts fresh lime juice (1 oz.)
  • Grenadine (1 tbsp.)
  • Orgeat (almond) syrup  (1 tbsp.)
  • Pineapple spear
  • Umbrella and awesome tiki tumblers optional.

Combine all ingredients with cracked ice in a cocktail shaker and shake like there’s no tomorrow. Strain into a chilled tumbler or glass highball over crushed ice. Garnish with pineapple, umbrellas, orchids, etc… Have fun!
