Rob and I are pleased to announce that our new book Tiki Drinks: Tropical Cocktails for the Modern Bar is now available for pre-order on Amazon! We have been working on this book for quite some time, putting together a collection of new and classic tiki recipes that everyone will enjoy – especially if the last time that they tried a “tiki” drink was back in the 1970s. And if – like us – you’re a regular tiki drinker, you’re going to have a lot of fun with these cocktails.
The official release date is June 1st, so we still have a few months to go, but that is no reason not to get your orders lined up now!! Here is the description from the publisher.
Tiki cocktails are a tasty mid-twentieth-century American classic, but their popularity suffered when syrupy drink mixes hit the scene. Now it’s time to welcome them back: Food blogger Nicole Weston and mixologist Robert Sharp have brought back the fresh taste of tiki drinks, banishing the artificial syrupy sweetness of mixes for fresh fruit juices, high-quality spirits, and homemade syrups. They offer a taste of the past with traditional recipes that honor the flavors of the Caribbean, South Pacific, and the Hawaiian Islands that first inspired the tiki cocktail. Including original recipes inspired by Asian and South American flavors, Tiki Drinks is a hybrid of the old and the new; the concept may be vintage but the drinks are fresh. Drinks include delicious updates of Jamaican Milk punch using fresh cream of coconut, Siren’s Elixir with fresh-squeezed lemon and guava juice, and a Hawaiian Queen Bee with locally sourced honey and garnished with juicy, fresh-cut pineapple. Of course, what’s a tiki drink book without a little Hawaiian lore and style? Tiki Drinks has that, and much more. 75 color photos
