A Wave of Rum

China Blossom Restaurant and Lounge in North Andover, MA celebrates the “return of tiki” with a menu full of classic rum cocktails.


If “tiki culture” stirs up nostalgic images of Hawaiian shirts, paper umbrellas, giant mugs with ancient carvings and sweet rum, then hold onto your shorts because tiki is back! China Blossom Restaurant & Lounge, located in North Andover, MA, is bringing the “tiki culture” craze from the beach shore to the North Shore.

China Blossom is lighting the torch for the tiki revival, serving famous rum-based drinks like the Mai Tai ($6.95), of Trader Vic and Donn Beach fame, and the Ko Ko Head ($6.95), made of pineapple, light rum, grand marnier, cream of coconut, and served in a coconut glass.

Tiki culture took over America with the opening of bars in California during the 1930’s.  The kings of all things tiki were Donn Beach and Trader Vic, both tiki restaurateurs serving classic Cantonese cuisine, and rum potions loaded with “special ingredients,” creating a period famous for sunken tiki bars, décor of bright fabrics, flowers, and fruity, rum concoctions. No longer just a fad of the 30’s, China Blossom is reviving the culture and bringing it back!

China Blossom Restaurant & Lounge is a legendary family run restaurant located in North Andover, MA.  Established in 1960, they have become a local landmark serving the freshest, highest quality Asian cuisine and premium drinks in the Merrimack Valley.
