Canon has one of the world’s largest whiskey selections, and we’ve been a fan of its glassware for quite some time. As that show about the Pacific Northwest’s other major city says, just put a bird on it.

Lost Lake, Chicago
Tiki drinks have always been known for their great glassware and garnishes. Lost Lake, though, takes tiki to a new level with its whimsical mugs, garnishes, and straws curling every which way. 3154 W. Diversey Ave., Chicago

Mother of Pearl, New York City
The tiki-leaning cocktails at Mother of Pearl, a vegan Polynesian spot, have basically taken over Instagram. Witness the “Shark Eye,” looking for all the world like it’s just devoured a mermaid.
95 Avenue A, New York
“Shark Eye can make you feel that island vibe on any occasion.” ✨ Thank you @foodandwine for the cocktail recipe cover: • 1 1/2 ounce bourbon, preferably Elijah Craig • 3/4 ounce passion fruit syrup (available at specialty stores and from kalistyans.com) • 3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice • 1/2 ounce bonded rye whiskey • 1/4 ounce Luxardo maraschino liqueur • 1/8 ounce curaçao • 2 dashes of tiki bitters • crushed ice • small pineapple leaves (optional) and 3 dashes of Peychard’s bitters, for garnish A post shared by Mother Of Pearl (@motherofpearlny) on
ROKC, New York City
The Tokyo-inspired drinks at ROKC, a ramen joint and cocktail bar in Harlem, might be served in a faux bird’s egg or an actual conch shell. 3452 Broadway, New York
Roommate’s Thai iced tea cocktail @rokcnyc last weekend. Tasted like a shot of Thai iced tea (yum condensed milk) with just a hint of absinthe. Drank alongside $1.5 oysters, the best ramen north of 60th street (with fish based broth?!), and fabulous company (reunions hey). The beets cocktail was delicious too. Absolutely deadly ☠️ . . . #wintering #reunions #foodtravels #ramen #brunch #boozybrunch #cocktails #sweetdrinks #rokc #sundays #bestles #nyc #newyork #newyorkcity A post shared by Michelle Zhang (@boozycheese) on

The Roof at Park South, New York City
We’re counting down the days until the weather warms and The Roof at Park South reopens for the season. It’s our regular summer hang for its delicious drinks (we’re partial to the Miami Vice—frozen pina colada swirled with frozen mai tai) as well as the hilarious glassware (we’ve been served a drink in a C3PO mug before) and A++ garnish game.
125 E. 27th St., New York
Slowly Shirley, New York City
Slowly Shirley is one of our regular hangs for its delicious drinks. It doesn’t hurt that they’re gorgeous as well. Check out this skull-for-two, the cocktail within turned black by activated charcoal. Downstairs, 121 W. 10th St., New York
Sometimes the best way to enjoy a cocktail is to share it. The Perla Negra is a punch for two featuring Santa Teresa 1796, Batavia Arrack, house made Sorrel, Ginger, Honey, OJ, Kalamansi, and Activated Charcoal. #santateresarum #bataviaarrack #cocktails A post shared by Slowly Shirley (@slowlyshirleyny) on
Super Panda Circus, Brno, Czech Republic
In Brno, Super Panda Circus is shaking up the cocktail game with their fanciful glassware. Yes, that really is the bar’s namesake animal hugging a baby’s bottle of booze and a Barbie doll riding a unicorn.

The Barking Dog, Copenhagen
More a cocktail pub, The Barking Dog takes a whimsical approach to a pretty serious drinks program. We can’t get enough of the Mexican 8-Ball. Sankt Hans Gade 19, 2200 København
there is a drink in there #mexican8ball #copenhagen A post shared by Ryan Mayeda (@ryanmayeda) on
Three Dots and a Dash, Chicago
This tiki bar’s got such good glassware game that it’s developed its own line of Three Dots and a Dash tiki mugs… just in case you’d like to try your hand at Instagrammable cocktails at home. 435 N Clark St, Chicago
