Purchased these fantastic tiki mugs for our new house, from the artists at Tiki Farm. These are high quality, made in the USA ceramic mugs. Many are produced in limited runs and then retired. The company was started by a guy who was dissatisfied with the junk mugs coming out of Asia.
The pictured mugs hold 19 0z and stand 6.5 inches tall. They are heavy! The package of 4 mugs weighed 9 lbs.
Check out all the groovy ware at TIKI FARM.
And how to fill those mugs?
Step on over to TIKI BAR TV! If your computer is challenged, like mine is, you can also see episodes of Tiki Bar TV over at YOUTUBE. TIKI BAR TV - "Forbidden Cocktails in a Swank Pad."
And in print media, try BEACHBUM BERRY'S GROG LOG, available on Amazon.
Tiki bar mixology is a lost art--but the Grog Log rescues it. A twenty-page introduction traces the history of Polynesian Pop, then teaches you everything you need to know about how to make the Grog Log's eighty tropical drink recipes. Many of these recipes have never before been published anywhere--including vintage "lost" recipes by Don the Beachcomber, Trader Vic, and long-gone Polynesian restaurants from the island of Manhattan to the islands of Hawaii. Profusely illustrated with vintage tiki menu graphics from the '50 and '60s, with cover art by famed Exotica artist Bosko. As Mr. Berry and Ms. Kaye see it, they are giving the country the perfect drink book for the age of malaise. "If we're going to feel like zombies," they write in their preface, "we may as well be drinking them."
