Traveling Tiki Cocktail Bar needs

IMO, you can fit all you need to make many of the best Tiki drinks in a milk crate. Granted, these are for making Don the Beachcomber’s recipes…

  • Light Rum
  • Gold Rum
  • Dark Rum
  • 151 Lemon Hart or other quality demerara
  • 80 proof demerara (you may drop this and sub dark rum for space)
  • Allspice dram
  • Falernum
  • Lime juice
  • White Grapefruit juice
  • Pineapple juice
  • Orange juice
  • Honey syrup
  • Simple syrup
  • Cinnamon syrup
  • Passionfruit syrup
  • Bitters
  • Pernod or Herbsaint or Absinthe
  • Nutmeg
  • Soda water

Measuring devices (spoons and jigger, etc.)

Granted, the size of your containers will dictate whether it all fits in one crate.

Ice, glasses and a blender and you are set!

With this you can make:

  • Navy Grog
  • Jet Pilot
  • Test Pilot (almost, Cointreau)
  • Rum Barrel (almost, grenadine)
  • 151 Swizzle
  • Big Bamboo
  • Cobra’s Fang
  • Demerara Cocktail
  • Derby Daiquiri
  • Jasper’s Jamaican
  • Nui Nui
  • Q.B. Cooler
  • Zombie Punch (almost, grenadine)
  • Shark’s Tooth (almost, maraschino cherry juice)
  • 2070 Swizzle

The drinks that may be missing a small ingredient are passable and your host may have what is needed or you can easily take it with.

So next time you are invited to a cocktail party, or a room party at an event, show up prepared!
