Trader Vic's Tiki Party!: Cocktails and Food to Share with Friends Reviews
The first 20 pages is a really nice history of the restaurant chain and how it influenced tiki culture, including a significant number of photos. The next 30 covers ideas on how to pull off tiki without tacky. Not sure if I agree on the section about rum, as I find a number of their blends and mixes inferior to other inexpensive brands or fresh ingredients. And they are flat out wrong with what you can substitute Demarera Rum with. Captain Morgan’s (along with most other spiced rum) isn’t even in the same class as El Dorado.The last 100 or so pages are recipes for food and drink, including a number of their non-alcoholic drinks. A worthwhile resource that’s a good second book to own after Beachbum Berry Remixed.
An interesting book with a mini-biography about Trader Vic's life, things you need for a tiki party and bar, drinks, non-alcoholic drinks and "nibbly thingies." Also resources on where to buy tiki barware and Hawaiian shirts. Aloha! Coming and going.
The ideas are either for people with way more time than me or who are having a small, intimate tiki party. Not too useful for helping plan a large party. I did use a few of the punch recipes though....
fun, interesting, good lomi lomi salmon recipe
