Artist Michael Grider of Santa Maria, California makes all kinds of neat tiki accessories. He's got his own branded cocktail umbrellas, bar spoons, and lots more.
But it's his brass swizzle sticks that look like mini tiki torches that are catching the most attention. Why? Because you can actually light them on fire.
Warning: If you light this on fire, it will be HOT! Extinguish before drinking and if lit the metal torch topper will get hot to the touch! Do not burn yourself! We take no responsibility for injury! These are novelty items that are USE AT YOUR OWN RISK ?
