Back in the 1960s, Palm Springs visitors loved the Polynesian decor and potent cocktails of Don the Beachcomber.

In the very same Palm Canyon Drive ­location, recently opened Bootlegger ­Tiki brings back the midcentury craze with pufferfish lights and island maidens painted on velvet. The kitschy-cool decor is a sultry backdrop for classics like mai tais and daiquiris or modern creations that use the likes of mole bitters and cardamom-lemongrass syrup.

From the same owners, the adjacent ­Ernest Coffee is the only place in the area to get Portland favorite Stumptown Coffee.

Drink: La Florida, with Stumptown coffee, cognac, creme de cacao; Naked Ape, with rum, cinnamon syrup, banana liqueur

Go: 1101 N. Palm Canyon Dr., Palm Springs
