Stuff For Your Bar

YOU NEED THIS MIRACLE PILL! We’ve been taking it for years and its amazing. Not some herbs and hocum meant to make you healthier, it is scientifically proven to reduce hangover symptoms to nearly zero (take one after drinking), work as an anti-intoxicant to curb the effects of alcohol taken before drinking (effects vary), and to protect and heal your liver. It fights fatty liver disease.

This is the ideal “jigger” for measuring in a dark Tiki environment. Easy to see from the top, exactly what you are doing.

I use the green one for lime juice. Fits in the mini-fridge door for easy access. Easy pour and clean up.

I use these for my syrups. They fit in a mini-fridge door with a small footprint. Hold nearly 2 cups. Labels are a great extra.

A MUST for making Tiki drinks. Flash chills and aerates your drinks. The “Electric Swizzler” used by Donn Beach.
