In the last few months, my wife has really come to love tiki drinks and tiki bars. So, we purchased a little in-home tiki bar. We’re having a little gathering for some friends tomorrow which will be the first time any of them have seen the bar. Because he holds a special place in our hearts (and probably because our last name is Ackerman), we’ve decided to call our bar The Admiral Ack Bar. I made these swizzle sticks as mementos for our guests.
The red and yellow sticks are made from cast acrylic. The orange are made from extruded acrylic remnants that the local plastic store gave me for free. I didn’t find any differences in the way they cut except that the extruded smells a lot worse than the cast.
