End of Summer Tiki Cocktails

End of Summer Tiki Cocktails

It’s been a good summer. Countless ball games, crab feasts, a vacation I never wanted to end. My summer couldn’t have been better. But now it’s time to get back to work. It’s time to get ready for some fall cocktails.

But I’m not so eager this year to say goodbye to the lazy, boozy days of summer.  What’d you say we send summer off with a bang?! 

What is a Tiki cocktail? Tiki, in my opinion, is a cocktail that evokes a particular state of mind rather than a specific definition. It’s an intoxicating concoction that generates a condition of ease and relaxation. When you think Tiki you think rum, tropical fruits, and the occasional spice.

I'm a Baltimore gal that loves her home town almost as much as a good drink. A bit of a cocktail geek that loves the classics while experimenting with my own recipes. I'm home schooled and eager to learn more about the spirited world of cocktails.
