Did you know that Salt Lake City has its own exotic tiki bar? Yup. The cocktail experts (and husband/wife team) behind Tinwell – Caleb Cannon and Amy Eldredge – have turned the upstairs at Tinwell into TinTiki, an inviting and comfy tiki cocktails lounge.
It’s a mostly private room available for parties and special events, but opens to the public on Tuesdays. That’s where you’ll find classic tiki cocktails along with kitschy decor to match.
Among the tiki drinks served up at TinTiki are the Zombie, Mai Tai, Jungle Bird, Painkiller, and a 2018 addition to the tiki cocktail lineup: The Wray MF. It’s made with overproof Jamaican rum, Blanco Tequila, Gin, Blue Curacao, Lemon, Pineapple and Ginger.
One of my favorite concoctions at TinTiki is the Painkiller. It’s a yummy mix of Navy strength Jamaican Rum, Orange, Pineapple, Coconut and Nutmeg.
In addition to tiki decor, TinTiki sports and entire wall of avian etchings from the Audubon Society.
So the next time you’re hankering for a tiki taste of summer, head over to TinTiki and get your lips around a scrumptious tiki cocktail.
