Tiki Drinks & Tropical Popcorn in Our Tiki Room, Recipes Included!


You’re invited for tropical cocktails in
our tiki room! Hello and welcome to the Velveteen Lounge
Kitsch-en! I’m back on my feet after my recent illness and ready to wrap up our home
tour in our Florida room, also known as the Velvetiki Room! We have easy and exotic libations
and snacks, along with lots of kitsch, so let’s get this party started! A tiki room tour without a tiki drink would
be a crime, so let’s shake one up! To make this little masterpiece, all you do is combine
1 oz of dark Jamaican rum, 1 oz Malfy gin with lemon, ½ oz ginger liqueur, ¾ oz R.W.
Knuedsen pineapple-coconut juice and ¼ oz fresh lime juice. Shake with ice and strain
into a cocktail glass! Isn’t that better? Serve this snack with your cocktails for an
easy and inexpensive tropical treat! All you do is combine 1/2 cup popcorn with 3 TBSP
oil, 3 TBSP sugar and 1 tsp salt in an oil popper and pop. Quickly spread on waxed paper
and sprinkle with 1 tsp Sazon tropical spice, 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper and ¾ of a cup chopped
dried pineapple. Toss until combined. You’d better make a lot – it disappears quickly! Our tiki room started with an empty enclosed
porch and a dream, but over the years we’ve filled it with with treasures collected everywhere
from tiki events to thrift stores to the street, as well as items that we’ve made or that
were made by talented friends. The collection is always evolving, so it may look completely
different the next time you drop in for a visit, but that’s half the fun. The other
half is sitting out here on a warm summer evening and enjoying a drink! Drop in anytime, we’re always happy to shake
one up for you. Thank you for visiting the Velveteen Lounge
Kitsch-en! Please subscribe to our channel for lovely libations, spirited live broadcasts
and more! It’s always happy hour at the Velveteen Lounge Kitsch-en! See you soon!

  5. I'm so envious… I want a Tiki room too. thanks for the great tidbits and cocktails, always an inspiration.

  6. The last time my wife and I were in Up-state we were in over a foot of snow. We have friends from Nutley NJ across the river they tell us the Summers are muggy. Our only visit to NJ was getting off our plane in Newark. It will be 80 today here in the Central Valley of Cali…
