Boy Drinks World Serrano Cocktail Spice is coming to Tiki Oasis!

Boy Drinks World Serrano Cocktail Spice is one of my favorites and I first tried it at the Tales in 2013, and brought a bottle back with me to experiment with. A few drops of it can change a cocktail entirely adding a lively vibrant kick and I love it, especially in cocktails with [...]

If you have had a well made zombie you know what i`m talking about…

This seminar held by Jeff Berry, Ian Burrell and Steve [...]

The Black Magic Cocktail and How to sub a Defunct Rum

Oh how i wish sometimes that i could just for a day or two transport myself back to the time where the tiki drinks were served with rums like the 17 year old JWray, the quintessential Mai Tai rum or for example the Jamaican Dagger rums…

Well, there IS still some of those rums [...]
