The authors Weston and Sharp are clearly tikiphiles and mixology experts. I would say this is the best drink book to come along since 'Da Bum Jeff Berry issued his definitive history of tiki drink and recipe books.
The book opens 12 pages that might be considered a basic short course in bartending. A quick history of tiki libation. Then a look at rum, the atom of the tiki drink. Mixers to use. Bar tools, technique. Glassware and garnish.
The next 35 or so pages are dedicated to the Classic Tiki drinks. Master this chapter and your barstools will never be empty. They're all here, Trader Vic's Mai Tai, Don's Zombie, Fog Cutter, Missionary's Downfall, Rum Barrel, Daiquiri, Pain Killer, etc. all beautifully photographed in color the way they should be presented in the proper glassware.
70 more pages follow with Modern Tiki drinks.. Molokai Mule, Tahitienne, Rob's Mistake a best guess of Ray's Mistake (founder of the Tiki Ti bar in Los Angeles), the Outrigger, South Seas Sling and other mutations of famous drinks (Singapore Sling) worthy of a try.
Next, a short chapter (7 pages) on blendered and bowl drinks; The Scorpion Bown, Pina Colada, and other straw sucking quenchers.
Finally the book closes with a reference section that shares all of the secret sauces you'll need to make a great tiki drink.. stuff you can buy in a bottle, but it's sooo much better if you make your own: Simple Syrup, Falernum, Orgeat and others.
The photos of palm trees, the South Seas graphics and illustrations pepper the book to make it - just so perfect.
Mahalo to the authors Nicole and Robert for a new classic! The bar is open.
