Get the (mini) umbrella ready: It’s raining Tiki chic with more force andfinesse than ever, all over town. The exotically decked out, cheekily Polynesian libations run from sweet and sour to tart and fruity, and are getting the full craft-cocktail treatment at high-style newcomers like Shore Leave (11 William E. Mullins Way, 617.530.1775, shoreleaveboston.com). There, you’ll find creations like the Take Me With You, a piquant froth of Guyanese rum, sherry, vanilla, strawberry, lime and egg yolk.

Swanky bowling alley Kings (50 Dalton St., 617.266.2695; 60 Seaport Blvd., 617.401.0025; kings-de.com) serves a seriously over-the-top 1.5 gallon mai tai made for four people. It’s a meticulously made amalgam of spiced rum, fresh juices, almond liqueur and Goslings Black Seal, punctuated with a rum oat.

At Tiffani Faison’s sophisticated Southeast Asian outpost, Tiger Mama (1363 Boylston St., 617.425.6262, tigermamaboston.com), grab a seat at the bar and order up a Black ai Aair—a fusion of rye, amontillado, black rice, banana, lemon, sesame and egg white that goes down as smooth as an afternoon beneath a shady palm tree.
