Tropical Cocktails Day

Description

Tropical Cocktails Day, which was started by Jace Shoemaker-Galloway in 2013, celebrates the flavorful drinks that are most associated with tiki bars, and are more often than not made with rum. Tropical cocktails became popular after two tiki bars, Don the Beachcomber and Trader Vic’s, opened in California in the 1930’s. Both establishments claimed to have invented one of the most popular tropical cocktails, the Mai Tai. Since their formation, tiki bars have portrayed a romanticized view of what Polynesian drinks and culture are like. After about thirty years of great renown, tiki bars fell out of popularity. But, there was a resurgence in the 1990’s, and in the 21st century tropical libations are once again filling people’s glasses.

Tropical Cocktails Day is observed next on Wednesday, June 26th, 2019. It has been observed annually on June 26th since 2013.

How to Observe

Celebrate the day by drinking a tropical cocktail! There are many types of drinks to try. You could try a more classic cocktail, or try to expand your palate. You could make one of these at home, but the best place to try one is at a tiki bar!
