The Original Tiki Drink Company – Don's Dagger Bar at Don the Beachcomber – Sunset Beach, CA

Kim and I have been on a mad hunt discovering different bars across the U.S. We are working to get them posted when we have time so we can share what we’ve found with you. Most of the time the bars we seek specialize in craft and vintage cocktails. One throw back of the vintage cocktails that we’ve enjoyed are tiki drinks. I’m sure you remember we created our own Mai Tai recipe.

There’s debate surrounding who created the famous Mai Tai. The two on the top of the list are Trader Vic’s and Don the Beachcomber. To be honest I have no idea who invented it but we’ve had the opportunity to try Don’s, and his version is good. Not as good as ours (j/k) but good none-the-less. In all seriousness, they have a number of classic tiki favorites, many of which I’m sure they created. Kim and I are slowly working our way down their menu and enjoying it!

The bar is part of a much larger venue that serves food and can hold private functions. The bar is dark, with a black painted popcorn ceiling designed to look like lava. They have everything from a tiki bar with a thatched roof, blowfish lanterns and a ton of classic tiki cups. When you walk in, it makes you feel like you stepped back in time. And after you’ve had a few, you lose all track, of time that is.

Here are some of the drinks we have sampled:
