Sure you’ve enjoyed a cool (and boozy) tropical drink, but do you know the story of tiki’s birth, ascension, decline and fall, and redemption and resurrection? This phenomenon dominated cocktails, food, and pop culture for a time, and even spread around the globe through the rise of the first American theme restaurants. We’ll explore that history, with a special emphasis on Boston’s mid-century tiki scene, and take an in-depth look at the drinks and spirits that define tiki and its intoxicating exotica.
