This book has tons of tropical drink recipes using muddled fruit (like a Mojito is made). The book is divided into sections -- each section focuses on a fruit or other ingredient from Hawaii. At the beginning of each section, the author has a page or two explaining a little bit about the fruit, including interesting facts and funny stories about the fruit (did you know that macadamia nuts are toxic to dogs?) and tips, like how to cut up a mango.

The cocktail recipes are awesome! My favorites are the Rocket Collins (made with local oranges), the Grapes of Wrath (pineapple and green grapes), the Princess Pupule (papaya, strawberry, and watermelon pucker) and a yummy Lycheetini. Some of the ingredients are unusual but fun to play with, too, like Kona coffee, sugarcane, poi, and dragon fruit. There's also a tasty Pacific Rim Bloody Mary Mix, using wasabi, shoyu (soy sauce), and Hawaiian chili pepper water. Yummy! And fun for parties!

This is really the muddled (crushed) fruit cocktail bible! I really recommend this book if you want to do something fun with cocktails, instead of the same old-same old. The recipes and look of this book are just head and shoulders above any other drink book I have ever seen. If you like cocktails, you should definitely have this in your cookbook library.

This is a great book, but I have to give it 4 stars because finding the fruits used in this book are hard to find if you don't live in Hawaii. I just wish there were more recipes with the juices instead of muddling these hard-to-find fruits. It would have been nice for the book to convert ounces of muddled fruit to ounces of the juice in case you couldn't find the fresh fruit. The recipes I could make with the fruits that are available were fantastic! I also like that they had numerous recipes for Macadamia Nut Liquer. I have a bottle of Trader Vics Macadamia Nut Liquer and hardly have any recipes using this type of liquer. The pictures in this book are stunning. It makes me want to get back to Hawaii soon. I don't recall having drinks this good in Hawaii - maybe I was at the wrong bars? The drinks I remember were weak and didn't have the fresh-muddled fruit like the ones in this book. Anyway, this is another great book from the author. He is a great mixologist. Trader Vics should be worried.

Aloha! I love this book, Mark has been a bartender at some great spots around Hawaii and knows his stuff when it comes to drinks. Mixing in Tropical Fruits and other great island ingredients make this book a good addition to any bar. I had been luck enough to sample many of these drinks during the photo shoot. PS if your ever in Waikiki please stop in and let me know you saw the review. (Tiki's Grill & Bar) [...]
