From a press release:
“Winter may just have begun, but The Royal is transforming LeDroit Park into a tropical oasis for the latest edition of its monthly industry night series, on Monday, January 11 from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. One special night devoted to South American Tiki cocktails. Royal Knights: “Kon Tiki” edition will feature the exotic creations of guest bartender Lukas B. Smith ranging from Bolivian brandy-topped Scorpion Bowls, Pisco-filled fruits and shaved ice cocktails, plus island flicks on the projector and other tropical surprises.
Inspired by Kon Tiki, the famous 1947 expedition which took Norwegian explorer and writer Thor Heyerdahl from South America to the Polynesian islands, The Royal will showcase lesser-known South American spirits in classic and original Polynesian-themed cocktails. Spirits such as Rujero Singani, a Bolivian brandy, Avua and Boca Loca cachacas, El Dorado and Ministry of Rum Collection rums imported from Guyana and more will be highlighted in cocktails throughout the evening.
