Caribbean women with colorful flowers necklaces are as characteristic of tiki culture as refreshing cocktails with exotic decorations. Tiki drinks make generous use of tropical fruits and spices, come in artful presentations and have one common denominator: Caribbean rum.

The Tiki culture was born in the United States in the 1930s, inspired by Polynesian themes. Tiki  cocktails are usually ice cold, natural, balanced and, above all, very well elaborated. Among the most famous ones, here are just a few: Mai Tai, Zombie, Fogcutter, Navy Grog, Chief Lapu Lapu, Painkiller and Suffering Bastard.
