Vacation in a Glass: Azul Takes on The Tiki

November 4, 2016 Edward Speirs

Well really, it’s about time! On a beach destination like Bali, it seems strange that no one has really fully embraced a cocktail menu that exudes that island feel and lifestyle. Enter Azul Beach Club, who have recently released a whole menu of island-inspired Tiki cocktails that will have you sipping under the sun in no time.

If you aren’t familiar with Azul Beach Club you’ll find it overlooking Legian Beach; a 3 story, fully-bamboo structure that circles it’s way up towards the swaying palm trees. With its contemporary-rustic fusion style interiors, Azul is a modern, comfortably furnished ‘beach shack’ – and a lot larger than your average beach shack! With that in mind, the guys at Azul fully embraced their space and thought, well, if we’re a bamboo beach bar on the Island of the Gods then rum certainly needs to take the limelight on our cocktail menu.

Mixologist Helmut Roessler has hand-picked local ingredients and premium rum to create a new range of tropical delights, from adapted classics – think Mai Tai’s and Mojitos with a Balinese twist – to brand new concotions inspired by the flavours of paradise. Each drink is served in amazing Tiki-style glasses to emphasize the tropical wonders these drinks really are. Here are a few of our favourites:-

The Mai Tai 2.0, a tropical tradition. A collection of 3 rums with fruitful flavours of paradise blended in; It’s refreshing and oh, so strong. Go easy on this one tiger.

The Island Nectar, one of the favourites at Azul Beach Club but the ingredients remain a secret. All you need to know is that this tropical brew will have you dreaming of paradise islands for days to come; incredibly refreshing and exotic:

From their cocktails to share, The Treasure Box, perfect for 4 pirates to share – better than a pot of gold don’t you think? This delightful – and dramatically served – sharing cocktail punch consists of local ginger, Azul hibiscus grenadine and 3 types of rum. Yo-ho-ho-ho!

Every Friday, Azul Beach Club Bali holds their The Islanders event, which is the ultimate Island Lifestyle Experience. Tiki cocktails will be flowing, but even better is the live music playing featuring some of the best local bands playing modern island grooves through the night!
