When tiki bars first emerged in the mid-20th century, they evoked an idealized Polynesian paradise. Thanks to the creative mixology of Don the Beachcomber, Trader Vic and many imitators, tiki drinks were known for their exotic flavors, fresh-squeezed fruit juices, fine rums and potency. Relive this Polynesian pop era with true tiki drinks and delicious Hawaiian-inspired dishes during Tiki Night at Vintage 56 in Rockledge on Saturday, June 23, from 5 p.m. to close.
The restaurant will feature a special Hawaiian buffet from 6 to 9 p.m. — all you can eat for $18. It will include BBQ Rum Black Bean Soup, Vintage Spinach Salad, Mango Chili Glazed Chicken Thighs, Pineapple Jerked Pork Loin, Citrus Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Coconut Jasmine Rice, Citrus-Honey Smoked Carrots, and Plantain Mash. Patrons may also order from the restaurant menu.
Behind the bar, guest mixologists George Jenkins and Jimi Gonzalez will be making tiki-drink classics — the Zombie, the original formidable tiki drink; and the Mai Tai, the most popular tiki drink of all time — as they were meant to be served. They will also offer modern rum cocktails inspired by the tiki tradition.
Drinks will be served in keepsake tiki mugs; get a discount on your first drink if you bring your own tiki mug.
There is no cover charge. Reservations are suggested. Please call 321-639-4048.
