In The Tiki Hut

Just because its as cold as you would like it to get out there doe not mean you cannot pretend to be somewhere tropical. What goes with this imagination? A drink. Better yet a fruity drink. What better idea than to throw a luau in the dead of winter. Keep the hope alive. Pina coladas are for kids, try a little sophistication with Trader Tiki's Exotic Syrups.  Far from the Tropical local where these syrups draw their inspiration, small batches are being concocted up in Portland, OR.  All flavors are inspired by the traditional tiki drinks that had their glory days in the 1950s and 60s.  There are no preservatives and no high fructose corn syrup used in making these drink mixes.  Flavors range from Cinnamon to Hibiscus Grenadine.  Each page has links to various recipes where they are needed.  So even though you are wrapped in a sweater with a scarf does not mean this weekend you should not order various syrups from Trader Tiki's.  Take a mental vacay while sipping on a sweet, tropical drink.  Don't forget to serve with mini umbrellas.
