NEW! Busty Wench NEW!
"ARRRRR!" Desired by many a plundering pirate, the Busty Wench is always a welcome treat. Whether you're actually sailing the high seas or just out looking for booty, a few swigs of this delicious caribbean cocktail will have you keel-hauled.

Drink up me 'earties!

Diablo Almonde
Like a wolf in sheep's clothing, this tropical treat can be deceiving. Don't be fooled by its 'fruity' appearance or sweet almond accent, as many an unwary patron has been left spinning by the Diablo's hidden qualities. After one, you'll beg for another. After two, you'll be heard yelling, "Der Garnelebehälter zu mir schien wie ein kleines Hedgehog!"

You have been warned.

Curse of Kini
Originally created as an elixer for good luck, it was soon realized that this potent potion, when consumed while having impure thoughts, could cause the unknowing drinker to immediatly strip naked and run around like an ass. Opinions differ on whether this urge is actually a 'blessing' or a 'curse', but needless to say, the Curse of Kini is a very popular drink. Buy one for a friend!

Koko Head
Koko Head (the volcano) which is on the island of Oahu, was said to have been built 10,000 years ago by Pele, Goddess of the Volcanoes. Koko Head (the cocktail) by all accounts, was Pele's beverage of choice. It's no secret that this intoxicating concoction is also King Kini's personal favorite, and he is often seen sipping one out of a fresh coconut cup.


This is the 'original' Velvetini as seen in our logo. Accept no imitations.
Created by bartender Cristine on Club Velvet's premier evening, and served in a martini glass,
this popular potable is still made to the exact specifications of her secret recipe.
King Kini himself points out that besides being a mind-altering chemical,
the Velvetini also makes a great fashion accessory!

An early version of this cocktail actually went into space with the astronauts of Apollo 7. Although 'zero-gravity' conditions prohibit the use of a martini glass in orbit, the crew enjoyed their 'Martiantinis' from mylar packets equipped with NASA standard-issue bendy straws and this didn't seem to hamper the experience in the least. In fact, rumor has it that both the future Space-Shuttle program AND the "I Dream of Jeannie" television series were conceived during one of those 'command module benders'.

Not a true 'martini' by any stretch of the definition, but a tasty libation nonetheless. Served in a martini glass and garnished with pineapple, the Kinitini is the 'sophisticated savage' of the bunch... Imagine if you can, James Bond at Disneyland's Enchanted Tiki Room.

There ya have it.

Wrath of Tweety
A wise man once said, "Hell hath no fury like that of a hot canary"... or something like that. Another seemingly innocent beverage, the Wrath of Tweety will both quench your thirst and kick your ass. We don't know exactly how Cristine came up with this one, but you'd better hope she was in a good mood while mixing the chemicals.

Riviera Cocktail
Formulated by 'The Millionaire' of Combustible Edison during a recent visit to Club Velvet and left for King Kini to name, this classy cocktail is a sure way for any bachelor to impress a lady (or vice versa!). Sexy and smooth... order two and it won't be long before the vertigo-go sets in.

They say chocolate is a drug that induces feelings of love.
King Kini says: Always Drink Your OvaltiniTM.

Kiss of Koni
Inspired by the legendary, beautiful Queen Koni, this fancy pink drink is both sweet and sassy at the same time. Just like the real thing (you'll have to take Kini's word on this), the Kiss of Koni will make you tingle all over... and then cry like a baby. Served in a martini glass for style, and with a twist of lemon for puckerability. smmmooch!!

This is self-explanitory.
Available 'large' or 'small'.
