While tiki includes a number of simpler cocktails ripe for adaptation and reinvention, sometimes bartenders look outside the category for inspiration. Lindsey Taylor of Little Buddy Hideaway in Asbury Park, New Jersey, for example, turned a commonplace Whiskey Sour into a tropical delight with the addition of orgeat, cane syrup and tiki bitters. It’s the perfect drink to convince new people to dip into the tiki trend.
