Okay, back to this episode… we discuss the origins of tiki cocktails and tiki culture from the 1920s till today. What is tiki? It is the Americanized version of Pacific island culture, essentially cultural appreciation boarder-lining on appropriation. While it is thought to be Hawaiian it also encompasses the South Pacific/Polynesia.
Tiki flourished from the late 1920s to the 1960s, but then started to decline up until the late 1990s when a slow revival occurred, which continues to today.
