    One thought on “Beachbum Berry's Sippin' Safari: In Search of the Great 'Lost' Tropical Drink Recipes…and the People Behind Them”

    1. Jeff Berry is single-handedly restoring respect to the tiki drink, which has for too long been a hipster joke When these cocktails first appeared in the 1930s, they were complex, fascinating, and very tasty. The modern counterparts are all about the fruity juice and the little umbrellas. The spirits are an afterthought. Berry sets us straight on that -- the original drinks used comlex aged rums -- and writes about the unsung heroes (mostly Filipino immigrant bartenders) who concocted and perfect [...]

    2. Sippin' Safari has some truly rare information. Jeff Berry has clearly done some serious research to gather these recipes and the stories behind them. The vintage artwork and Tiki paraphernalia on every page livens things up quite a bit.Even if it weren't for the recipes, it would be just about worth reading the book for this passage alone:ey drank tobacco juice until they threw up, crapped themselves, and fainted, at which point their spirit was released to commune with the gods.The recipes, th [...]

    3. Everything erything it says on the tin and more! This book dives into a deeply interesting slice of American history while still staying very true to its topic. more than simple drink recipes and anecdotes this book gives context and culture to the drinks and presents us the type of big picture that only dedicated research can bringe design and layout of this book is incredible too down to the faux newsprint feel of these paper it was printed on. the period photos, postcards, advertisements and [...]

    4. Another book by the Beachbum and once again I have to say I love it.This book is a search for lost tropical drinks and the people who made them. This is definitely more of a tiki-cocktail history than just another book of cocktail recipes and is very readable. The focus is on significant bartenders and mixologists of the 20th Century. As one can imagine the people are interesting with captivating lives and one learns very much about a slice of America that doesn't really exist anymore. I never r [...]

    5. Excellent book that is beyond just drink recipes. Nice to get the back story on so many classic tiki bars and how hard people worked to make them successful.

    6. A fascinating look at a world gone by. Also depressing to think about these great places we'll never be able to visit. Reading this makes me want to open a tiki bar of my own.

    7. Lots of research, lots of info, lots of recipes. Fun graphics. An impressive and important contribution to cocktail history and to tiki culture.

    8. Tiki Drink recipes filtered through the personal reminisces of the bartenders and entrepreneurs who invented them.
