It’s easy to get the impression that the whole world is talking about tiki. But does the world really know what it’s talking about? Tiki stands for ‘escapism’, for a short holiday on demand, without the need to travel. The Pink Paloma, one of the most popular drinks in Mexico, plays a very important role in this. White tequila, Thomas Henry Pink Grapefruit, and a pinch of sea salt become an irresistible creation, whose sweetness and tartness carry you and your guests away to the Caribbean. Right on the spot! By the way: The particular freshness and balanced tartness of a Pink Paloma comes from the high percentage of real fruit juice in our premium mixer. Cheers!

VIVA TEQUILA! VIVA PINK PALOMA!

Tequila shots are passé. Luckily – thanks to its complex aromas – the multifaceted distillate of the agave plant can do much more. And, namely, play the starring role in a Pink Paloma. An excellent tequila blanco and grapefruit lemonade, which originally comes from Jamaica, come together in this fantastic tiki drink. Both of them have cult status and are mixed together here along with a pinch of salt to create a classic drink around the world, which should ideally be served in a cooling clay jug or simple tumbler. By the way, according to the legend, the Pink Paloma was invented by Señor Don Javier Delgado Corona. Where: La Capilla Bar in the city of Tequila. Viva Paloma! Viva Señor Corona!

WHAT IS A TIKI DRINK?

Good question. It’s clear that at the time when tiki was booming, no one was talking about tiki. It’s also clear that Victor Jules Bergeron, who invented the Mai Tai at his Trader Vic’s Bar, which opened in 1934, is one of the founders of tiki culture. But the term tiki was first created later, when more and more bartenders and scene experts became fascinated by this phenomenon. Including Martin Cate, the owner of the world-famous Smugglers Cove tiki bar in San Francisco. This is how he defines a tiki drink: ‘It has to have a sour, sweet spirit that’s balanced and interesting, in a complex way, and it has to – in my opinion – have some sort of spice component.’ Everything clear? So, get started and share your tiki creations with us. Cheers!
