Format:Hardcover
Wonderful illustrations, can't wait to have a tiki party! Some of the measurements are quite vague, but that makes experimenting a little more fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars Killer Drinks and Shag! 22 Jan 2001
By Hearse Queen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
If you reviewed this book on it's recipes alone, it's a winner, with tons of tropical treats sure to delight you and your friends at your next kitschy luau shindig. Easy to follow instructions and ingredient lists make mixing tasty exotic drinks a snap.
But what I truly dug about this book, is the artwork which illustrates the book by kulture kulture maven Shag. Shag, also known as Josh Agle (the last two letters of his first name and the first two letters of his last name make up his swanky alias) is well known in the kustom kulture set for his retro styled artwork, which evokes the feel of 50's and 60's magazine ads, and record covers. The vividly colored clean illustrations he's drawn that accompany the drink recipes are just marvelous.
A tall chic woman with a big red turban, brandishing a large bottle of Rum, super swanky cocktail bars with hipsters a plenty, this book is a real treat not only for the tastebuds, but for the eyes as well..
Since I've gotten it, I've noticed all my friends have grabby hands when placed in direct proximity of it. They have to pour over it, examining and exclaiming in joy at Shag's ultra kitschy cool artwork.
I personally feel that as Shag's artwork becomes more widely known, this book is going to become a real collectors item. Take it from me, and treat yourself to a copy today!

3.0 out of 5 stars Have you actually tried the drinks??? 1 Oct 2010
By Michael A. Duvernois - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I love the illustrations and it's a great, fun book, but the drinks are very weird, super-sweet new versions of Tiki classics. These are not the drinks from the first Tiki Bar movement, nor from the retro-Tiki Bar scene. They're college bar sweet drinks with the same names as the Tiki classics. Sorry, hate to say it, but they're really not right. Check out Sippin' Safari: In Search of the Great "Lost" Tropical Drink Recipes... and the People Behind Them for the not-over-sweetened versions. Or just enjoy the illustrations in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tiki Drinks ROCKS!!!! 3 Feb 2001
By Lacey Lane - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I love tropical islands -- white sand beaches, azure blue waters, gentle trade winds -- and the many umbrella drinks you normally associate with them. I've been fortunate to visit many of them and Adam Rocke's book takes me back to each and every one whenever I mix up one of his fabulous concoctions. Shag's artwork is truly incredible, too. I've gone through the book cover-to-cover a number of times and I can't get enough.

2.0 out of 5 stars These Drinks Are Lousy 19 Oct 2004
By Eye Of Mind - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Buy this book for Shag's art, not the drinks. These drinks are mostly modern sweet syrupy messes designed to please the moronic masses. Where is the appealing balance of sour and sweet? Not here! If you are serious about good tropical drinks, I suggest you seek out the Grog Log or Intoxica.

4.0 out of 5 stars Treat yourself to a Caribbean holiday 14 Jan 2001
By iBoozer.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
It may not be Margaritaville, but you'll get a taste for the gentle Sea Breeze with this tribute to Tiki drinks. With 70 recipes featuring flavors from the Caribbean, you'll swear you can see Jimmy Buffet sailing out of a Pirates Cove into colorful Caribbean Sunsets. Feeling intimidated by the exotic nature of such drinks? No need to fear! Adam Rocke takes the time to list and explain the basic utensils, glassware and ingredients needed to create such tropical treats yourself. This book, along with a Mr. Turtle pool, and a few sun lamps is all anyone needs to go on a tropical vacation. It's sand-sational!!
