OK, so my in-laws have always had this cool, swanky, retro vintage decanter/bottle that they mix up their nightly manhattans in so they're ready to go. I indicated to my MIL that I coveted it--she found a 2nd one in her basement for me.

I hate mixing mai tais one by one, so my idea is to mix them en-masse and keep them in the cool decanter! thing is, I'd rather tiki it up, but I'm not very creative. I could put an eBay tiki decal on it, but I'm open to other suggestions. Anyone?

you'll need some vinyl or acid etch masking material. draw tiki on mask, apply to shaka, cut out mask with xacto, peel away parts you want etched.

or go to local sign shop and have them cut it on a plotter.
