While I await the opening of Frankie’s Tiki Room aka the only Las Vegas Tiki Bar, where I can swoop in, get some drinks and stumble out with a handful of swizzles. I wonder what other Tiki swizzles have appeared in the last few years. Here are the ones that I know of ~


Top to bottom in kind of a chronological order as best as I a can tell -
Tiki Farm (There was also a green one) • Oceanic Arts • The Conga Lounge • The Tiki Quest Swizzle • Hale Tiki • Forbidden Island • Hukilau.

Not counting the Shag swizzles that came with the decanters am I missing anyone? Did the Tabou Tiki Room have any? Guten Tag?

Ideally this post is about newer Tiki swizzles only (or at least trying to be), for new and current non-Tiki swizzles please see Swizzle Me this!

Here it is in situ:

the now closed Taboo Cove at the Venetion in Vegas(designed by Bosko) had Venus swizzle sticks from the adjacent Shag inspired bar.

Not quite a tiki swizzle stick, but close.

Right Sirginn and I've got one of those and although it was basically the same as Taboo Cove (Same address, same bar, same roof) it was still Venus so I'm not counting it.

What's the correct bar etiquette on swizzles, whilst drinking in a tiki bar a fellow patron finishes his/her drink, then departs the bar leaving a swizzle in their empty vessel. Are you allowed to nab that used swizzle?

I agree with Tikiracer but I won't be pouncing on any leftover pineapple wedges.

You could even move in while they are nursing the dregs of their beverage.

"Are you done with that swizzle there?........ Are you gonne eat that gristle?"

Here's a rendering of a new design that we're anticipating launching right around the holidays... "the Samoan War Club".

Like our original swizzle sticks and some of the older ones out there, I always prefer that the "business" end of the swizzle stick to have some mass to it.

When I was a young kid, those drink swords fit perfect in the hands of He-Man. This new club could have came in handy for a skeletor beat down.

Holden that war club is great! I'm looking forward to it's release, is it tied to a specific drink or is it just time to have a serious war club swizzle? I'm not really a fan of the old war club version.

Teakey your observation is spot on!

Holden,

That war club swizzle is fantastic. Great idea.

Here's another design that will be out soon (left on my pillow by the swizzle fairy):
