Garden Isle + the end of #TikiTheSnowAway

Beach-Banger-1

Well, this is the final #TikiTheSnowAway 2015 post! I’ve had a really tropical January and hope you have too! I figured I would save the best/most for last and this one is definitely the most. There are a billion ingredients in this drink because it’s Tiki and with Tiki all your dreams can come true! Even if your dreams are having a drink with at least 10 ingredients in it! Let Tiki live on in our hearts until the Summah time!

Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki. It’s a song in my head, it’s a refrain said to the beat of drums. It’s monday morning and I just want some Tiki,Tiki, Tiki, Tiki. I had a friend over the other night just so we could have “blue drinks” cause January is DREARY y’all. We had loads of them (but split them in 1/2 so we wouldn’t get trashed) and then watched Troop Beverly Hills. It was fabulous, simply fabulous! When my friend left, I was inspired to make one last drink.

Remember, if you’ve got a Tiki or Tropical drink to post on Instagram during January, use the hashtag #TikiTheSnowAway!
