Wow, a lot of very fun drink recipes - with all of the originals. If you were ever a Trader Vic's fan, this book will renew your faith. Also plenty of good food recipes. Great buy for anyone with a Tiki twist in their plans
This cookbook is full of fun drinks and easy-to-make appetizers. My favorite part of the book though is the introduction which gives you the history of the Trader Vic's restaurant chain. I loved reading about the man who started Trader Vic's and how it became the success that it is today. If you love all things tiki, you will love this book.
