Ok everyone, prepare to witness my ignorance in all things Tiki. I haven't had a chance to go book searching yet, but I'm intrigued by the Volcano bowls I see pictured on the internet.

What exactly are they for and what is the purpose of the raised area in the middle.

A Scorpion, or Kava Bowl, or Krakatoa (or a volcano), or any of those communal drinks, usually. You put a little 151 rum in the volcano well and light it up for the presentation...sort of "fire and ice".

Instead of lighting 151 rum (watch those eyebrows!), some people will use a little dry ice or light a rum soaked sugar cube in the volcano. The rest of the bowl holds a communal drink fit for 2 to 4. It's a cool (there's that word again--make that zazz?) social tiki experience, much more practical than throwing the local virgin in a lava pit.

Thanks for the info guys! Now at least I know what those great lookin' bowls are for. Of course, it will put a big damper in the virgin sacrificing. Drats!!

The best flame is with a crouton soaked in lemon extract. That's what they do at the Bahooka. Much more visible and taller.

Use PLAIN croutons!

Martiki~
Will any brand of lemon extract do or do you recommend a specific one?

Good question SCD, the stuff I bought a while ago was real expensive for a tiny bottle. So, what's the best?

I've had good results with Smart and Final's house brand of extract. It works great(since it's mostly alcohol) and it comes in a large bottle. (about 12 or 16 oz). Maybe $5. I haven't been able to find it in the one gallon size that the Bahooka uses (maybe at Costco?) but I've set a lot of drinks on fire and I haven't finished my bottle yet.

Flame on!

If you guys want a really good flame try rubbing (isopropyl) alcohol in the volcano center. It makes a great orange and blue flame that is just about the right height- and you don't have to remove a burnt crouton afterward.

The stuff only costs $0.69 a bottle- just make sure it doesn't spill into the drink, rubbing alcohol can be somewhat toxic if you drink it!

Flame ON!!

WOW!! I must say you guys are a wealth of info.

Personally, I find the idea of drinking something while a fire burns in the middle a bit scary. Not that I'm scared of fire, but what my relatives might do. I have an image of a bunch of burned baseball caps and singed eyebrows.

I not only had an image of a burnt pomp...I lived it!

SugarCaddyDaddy,
I read my boyfriend the account of your smoking pompadour and he laughed 'til there were tears rolling down his cheeks. NOW he understands why I'm hooked on TC. He's even asked me to help make some tiki art for the office in his trailer park.
