When San Francisco's tiki paradise Smuggler's Cove opened in 2009, its website didn't offer an address. Instead, a series of puzzles and games led to the proverbial "X" marking the spot, and a gauntlet was thrown down for patrons thirsty for all things tiki. We called the founder and owner of the bar, Martin Cate, to find out where our fascination with tiki culture began. He wrote Smuggler's Cove: Exotic Cocktails, Rum, and the Cult of Tiki. Find a recipe from the book for his Three Dots and a Dash — the cocktail's name means “victory” in Morse code — on the Good Food blog.
