The Russian Tiki cocktail is a recipe insired by Bryan Dayton of the restaurant Brider that transports drinkers to a tropical location with fresh fruit flavors and exotic ingredients. The drink is inspired by the history and culture tied to Tiki tradition for added foreign flair.

Tiki is the greenstone rendering of the human face in a wooden or stone mask that is prominent in exotic and lusciously green locations such as New Zealand. The drink commemorates the Tiki culture and setting with exotic fruits such as coconut, passion fruit puree and coconut water to give the drink a potently sweet and tangy taste. The cocktail renders its bright yellow hue thanks to a citrus base of orange juice mixed with honey.
