Tiki Tuesday at Cardinal Spirits

Tiki Tuesday is a beloved mid-week oasis at Cardinal Spirits, with a special menu of tropical cocktails every Tuesday night from our bartender Shannyn Brandon.

These aren’t the super-sweet drinks you had on a cruise in the ‘90s. Instead, they’re balanced, creative, not-too-sweet. And, highly Instagrammable! Our bartenders use a variety of our spirits — not just rum, but gin and even coffee liqueur — along with fresh juices, house-made syrups and house-made infusions.
