Tuesday, October 21st will be the Final Tiki Tuesday at Teardrop Lounge.
With the summer sun dwindling mighty fast, the time has come to let it set on the monthly fun. But this is no time to mourn! No time to weep into your rum barrels! If it’s going to be the last one, it’s going to be the best one!
Tiki Drinks will be available from a special menu all night, from 4pm to closing. Here’s a sneak preview of the menu.
The Don the Beachcomber classic, inspired by his travels to Montego Bay. It’s a potent and well frosted punch of 151 Demerara, tempered with Donn’s 1-2 of Bitters and Pastis.
By Craig Hermann, of the NW Tiki Kon. This is his riff on a Mai Kai Classic, the Black Magic. Coffee and Passion Fruit play to tingle your tastebuds with this tasty tempter!
Golden Monkey Grog
A new classic from Patrick Callahan, forged for a recent Forbidden Island Cocktail competition! A real traditional tiki tippler with lots of spice, and an out of this world texture.
Lei Lani Volcano
This drink hails from Disney’s Polynesian Village resort. A balanced sweet and sour combination of Guava, Lime, Coconut Rum and Pineapple juice is no Mickey Mouse cocktail.
Trader Vic’s most famous creation, and easily the most recognized tiki drink in the world. This lightly sweet combination of aged Rum, Lime, Curacao and Orgeat put Trader Vic’s on the map.
That good old Don the Beachcomber classic, with a mix of aged rums, grapefruit, and agave nectar.
Don the Beachcomber’s spicy classic, with Aged Rum, Orange and Lime juices, and Don’s Spices #2, a secret only recently unearthed by Jeff “BeachBum” Berry.
A Trader Tiki original, this one’s a sweet treat with 12-year Aged Demerara Rum, Ginger, Orange, and a touch of Vanilla Extract and spice.
Trader Vic’s sweet and complex original, recently unearthed for Tales of the Cocktail 2008.
Taken from the Bum’s own notebook, this is our tribute to Beachbum Berry, author, lecturer, and one helluva guy. Slightly Sweet and Cinnamony.
The most infamous of all Don the Beachcomber’s creations, any more than two and you’ll be joining the living dead with this combination of tropical juices, passion fruit, and plenty of dark and light rums.
Zombie Punch, 1934
Unearthed from the depths of an old Don the Beachcomber bartender’s notebook. This is the original Zombie, the inspirer, the downfall, and the resurrecter! This is a potent one.
If that’s not enough to drag you in, there will also be a few special surprises… you may just be taking home a new Tiki Mug or Beachbum Berry Book! What else could you want, a 96 oz. Volcano Bowl? A live Ukulele act? Well, we’ll see about that.. meanwhile, get ready for a tropic escape from the autumn weather! See you there!
Teardrop Lounge is located at 1015 NW Everett Street, in the Pearl District of Portland, OR.
