Intoxicating Summer Reads for Cocktail Lovers

This is a modern-day tropical drinks bible, all about cocktails, rum, and the culture of tiki. It's full of history, stunning photography and vivid stories that dispell myths and somewhat divulges secret recipes. There are even detailed instructions on how to dress for a tiki party, as well as how to throw an epic one. You'll learn about tiki's primordial days in the Caribbean, and characters such as Don the Beachcomber, Trader Vic, and Jeff “Beachbum” Berry. The Cates own the San Francisco tiki mecca called Smuggler’s Cove, and they don't forget to toss in 100 recipes, mixing techniques, and bar tools.
