Just finished Jeff "Beachbum" Berry's new book "Sippin' Safari".
Downsides: Too Short. Difficult to find ingredients
Upsides: Colorful stories, great vintage photos, delicious sounding drinks
It's really more of a story of the people behind the bar than about tiki drinks.
It does include about 70 recipes, or so, with plenty of advice in the appendix about appropriate ingredients and substitutions. Some never published before, and many are direct from the "black books" of the great bartenders of that era.
If you have any interest in things tiki, or that drinking culture, I highly recommend it.
How does it stack up against his other volumes? I don't have any of his books yet, so if I were to buy just one, which one would be best?
