2. #GarnishWars. Tiki cocktails are beautiful to see. When something is beautiful and full of garnishes we like to take pics and upload it to social media. Tiki poses better for pictures than anything.

3. #Showmanship. They test your bartender.
If you want to test your bartender, tell them to make you their interpretation of a tiki cocktail. A Painkiller, or simple Mai Tai, can showcase bartenders “know how”, without the associated pretense of some other classic cocktails.
