This week on The Speakeasy, Damon is joined by the “Captains” of Tiki Mondays, Brian Miller and Ryan Liloia. Hear the genesis behind the highly successful weekly guest bartender night at Lani Kai where all tips go to charity. Tiki Mondays has become a family affair, and Brian and Ryan talk about how this community of bartenders teach each other new things (including the Corporal Captain Dance) constantly. Learn more about Tiki drinks and why bartending is much bigger than serving drinks on a feel-good episode of The Speakeasy. This program was sponsored by Whole Foods Market.

 

“Everything I do behind the bar, I’ve taken from watching [Brian] Miller and the guests do their thing.”

–Ryan Liloia on The Speakeasy

“Tiki is something that’s in everybody’s consciousness now and people are realizing how fun it is.”

“The first drink I ever created, I made thirty different ways and it was only three ingredients.”

–Brian Miller on The Speakeasy
