We can think of few better characters to make tiki mugs of than the residents of Bikini Bottom. Created by designer Joe Allard and sculpted by Ramirez Studios for Mondo, the series includes a squared-off 32oz. SpongeBob, a 25oz. Patrick Star, and a 30oz. version of Squidward’s Moai house.
Mondo’s toothy ceramic mug is inspired by the famed shark from Spielberg’s classic Jaws. Enjoy your tiki drinks straight from the mouth of this beast, which holds up to 22 oz. of your drink of choice. This particular version comes painted to match the original Jaws poster and includes a translucent red swimmer swizzle stick.
These unique tiki mugs feature imagery of the grim reaper as a reminder to enjoy the splendor and riches of life before we meet our maker. Designed by Becky Cloonan and sculpted by Tufan Sezer and Mike Bonanno for Mondo. Choose from Mortuus, Exsanguine, or tan monochrome variants.
When it’s hot and sunny out, you should be drinking some appropriately sunshiney drinks. Davis Adams’ cocktail book is packed with delicious combinations of rum, fruit juice, and other staples of the tiki scene. And if you’re looking for some glasses to serve your conconctions, we highly recommend Geeki Tikis.
We love the look of Geeki Tikis’ ceramic tiki tumblers, but if you’d prefer something more kid-friendly and portable, check out these versions that are made from BPA-free plastic. They feature the same awesome designs, but are far less fragile, and have a screw-on top with a reusable straw. Not dishwasher or microwave safe.
Tiki bars have had a bit of a resurgence of late, with their Polynesian-themed cocktails and kitschy tropical decor. Sven Kirsten’s 640-page, hardcover coffee table book delves into the history of America’s pop take on tiki culture, with lots of wonderful archival photos and historical artifacts dating back as far as the 1930s.
Geeki Tikis‘ limited-edition tiki mugs are based on the likenesses of Jules Winnfield and Vincent Vega from Quentin Tarantino’s 1994 classic Pulp Fiction. Each one holds up to 18 ounces of booze or your favorite beverage. Best enjoyed alongside a Big Kahuna burger or a Royale with cheese.
These playful ceramic tiki mugs are based on General Mills’ spooky cereal mascots Count Chocula, Franken Berry, and Boo Berry (sorry, Frute Brute fans.) They were sold in limited numbers at SDCC 2018, but it looks like another batch is up for pre-order at Entertainment Earth.
Mondo pays homage to the revered prophet from Planet of the Apes for its latest line of Tee-kis tiki mugs. The Lawgiver mug has a capacity of 18oz and comes in four colorways, including a sweet bloody one. A deep brown colorway will be released at a later date.
Trekkies who prefer to rum and fruit juice cocktails to Romulan ale will be thrilled with this awesome set of tiki glasses, inspired by The Original Series. The set of 14oz. ceramic tikis includes likenesses of Captain Kirk, Dr. McCoy, a Gorn, a Klingon, Mr. Spock, and a Mugato.
Geeki Tikis’ series of officially-licensed tiki mugs includes designs based on Star Wars, Star Trek, TMNT, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Avengers, and more. There’s even a Pulp Fiction series on the way. They’re like the Funko POP! collectibles of barware, and we must have them all.
Mondo teamed up with Michael Bonanno and Ramirez Studios to create these awesome tiki mugs inspired by the sci-fi comedy Gremlins. The limited edition mugs will start shipping in early 2017, and are the first in a series which will include Alien and Iron Giant tiki mugs.
