IT'S A (Delicious) TRAP!

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.

Awesomely cute! Drinks with Swizzles are just automatically better. :smile:

What a cute design! I wonder if extruded tastes differently from cast in a drink? Be sure to wash them well!

Have a fun party!

Now we need a picture of the bar! :sunglasses:

Funny… house I bought in 1998 had a tiki bar in the living room… No, wasn’t a selling point for us, and was easily removed!

So friggin cute! I really love the Admiral sign too, the color are perfect.

If you need anything to put them in, the little box thingy @polarbrainfreeze made works great.
