You can try out this recipe for Mai Tai Tiki Pops:
Originally inspired by South Pacific culture, the fun, over-the-top Tiki trend is back in a big way. Tiki drinks like Mai Tais are best known for fruity flavors and whimsical garnishes. Try out the trend with virgin Mai Tai Tiki Pops, a treat that turns the tropical flavors of the classic drink into a fruity ice pop.
Explore the tiki music genre with artists like Martin Denny:
Tiki music came about from artists like Les Baxter, Arthur Lyman, and Martin Denny. These talented artists blended the Tiki idea through jazz music dotted with Polynesian, Asian, and Latin instruments. The “tropical” themes that emerged created the Exotica genre. Martin Denny described the musical style as “a combination of the South Pacific and the Orient…what a lot of people imagined the islands to be like…it’s pure fantasy though.” I think that pretty much sums it up perfectly!
And much more tiki fun at The Tiki Room!
