Taking Tiki uptown with a twist.

“We were fortunate enough to have the fantastic people at Tambo rine Mountain Distillery come up with a honey liqueur for us at Sky Room,” says Cam Birt, co-owner of Brisbane bars Sky Room and The Bowery. “We wanted to create a sophisticated Tiki-style drink served straight up, and having an affinity for Sailor Jerry spiced rum, we thought this would be a good fit.” Easy drinking and refreshing, it’s a drink, he says, that typifies the Sky Room style, “a throwback to the simple rum-punch-Tiki drinks of the 1950s”. Sky Room, 2/234 Wickham St, Fortitude Valley, Qld, (07) 3852 4718. 


Shake 50ml Sailor Jerry rum, 15ml Tamborine Mountain Distillery honey liqueur, 20ml fresh pineapple juice, 15ml lime juice, and a dash of bitters with ice. Strain into a cocktail glass, garnish with an orange twist and serve.
