Tiki is a big, big deal in the cocktail world. Some of the world's best bars are focused solely on tiki drinks. Tiki is a cocktail subculture that focuses on tropical themes – rum, tropical flavors, and fruits and had a major impact in the ’80s.
This cocktail from the tiki family of drinks was created in 1978 at the Hilton Hotel’s Aviary Bar in Malaysia. In some areas it's making a comeback of sorts and can be seen on many menus, mixing rum, Campari, pineapple, and lime. It is often garnished with a pineapple wedge, whose leaves resemble an exotic bird's plumage. It’s bittersweet and certainly fits the bill of classic tiki drinks, with lots of tropical flavors.
