Product description

Review

"A unique cocktail book full of fabulous pictures of home tiki bars, great artwork, recipes, and information." --5 Minutes of Rum

"Co-authors 'Trader' Tom Morgan and Kelly 'Hiphipahula' Reilly are Southern California tiki enthusiasts on a mission to prove that the best exotic drinks in town can be made at home." --The Rum Reader

"I gave up writing the review and stuck to drinking the cocktails I made." --Wolfbait

"Kelly 'Hiphipahula' Reilly and 'Trader' Tom Morgan are at the forefront of the social science of the home bar." --Actual Size

"The book's fantastic. Read it cover to cover." --Vinyl Rewind

"The most ambitious and anticipated Tiki cocktail book in years is being unleashed to a thirsty and ever-growing home bar community." --The Atomic Grog

"This collection of recipes is the result of the spirit of Tiki tradition and innovation combined. A testament to the creative force of a unique concept of escapism that has lived on through the dedication and passion of those who regularly worship at suburbia's hidden tiki temples. Experience this spirit in any one of the many cocktails presented in this book, giving you the pleasure to hold and taste the multi-layered world of Tiki in a glass--or favourite Tiki mug of your choice." --Sven Kirsten, author, The Book of Tiki

"This fabulous book provides you with the confidence, inspiration and expertise to have your own Tiki-Tastic night at home." --On The Shelf Books

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive guide to home tiki bar cocktails
Reviewed in the United States on 3 July 2019
Kelly and Tom have provided a peek inside the world of home tiki bars and the tropical cocktails that are created and served in that environment. They offer an inside look at bartending in home bars and how to apply what they've learned in your own bar. There are many many recipes in the book; enough to keep you mixing for years. Combined with the info needed to get started in your own home bar as well as recipes for unique syrups that will help you elevate tropical cocktails to restaurant and bar-level quality. Come for the recipes, stay for the writing and the gorgeous photography. You too can mix a Shaka Hula Bossa Nova, dim the lights, and transport yourself to the Rumpus Room and other home tiki bars. Cheers!
