On the pier in Lake Worth, the pop-up tiki bar has set up shop at the entrance to Benny's on the Beach. Potent libations, mixed drinks, and rum flights—some served from fresh, shaved coconuts—are doled out by local bartenders Rob Husted and Josh Gates, who developed the concept. It's almost ludicrous no one thought to do it sooner. The bar operates out of a pop-up tent open Wednesday through Monday from noon to 7 p.m., weather permitting. No need to get fancy, either; beachgoers order in bathing suits from a chalkboard menu that presents a short list of rotating and signature tiki-style drinks. This includes the Lota Colada ($15), a basil-infused piña colada that uses real cream of coconut; and the Virgin Sacrifice, vodka mixed with strawberries, blood orange juice, and ginger beer with a fancy Bols Blue Foam topper. All you need is some sunblock—and maybe a designated driver.
