The Search For A New Tiki Classic Cocktail  

When: Saturday 27th September, from 11am until the winner is crowned!
Where: The Tiki Lounge at Cheeky Tiki HQ
Aloha tiki cocktail fans! Cheeky Tiki and are launching a competitive cocktail challenge to try to find the modern day tiki maestro; a creator of Polynesian inspired cocktails fit for Donn and Vic’s great luau in the sky. Such a maestro would be hailed champion and crowned the Cocktail Kahuna…  It matters not if you are a time served bartender, or a home bar specialist. This is a competition for the person who loves a fabulous Polynesian inspired drink! It’s not about speed rounds or stage shows! It’s all about the libation and the serve, which should be an unashamedly tiki-tastic!
Are you worthy of the title of Cocktail Kahuna?
