While tiki mugs are a lot of fun, and we do have several at home, it is also fun to see tiki drinks served in regular coupes. The Parasol is such a great example. Being super yellow, containing a hefty amount of rum, tasting of banana and pineapple and being garnished with nutmeg this drink screams tiki even inside a coupe.
Being sort of a a banana daiquiri, we could see this cocktail being a crowdpleaser. Evoking those tropical feelings, it does exactly what a good tiki drink should do.
