The Home Bar Guide to Tropical Cocktails: Come and explore suburbia's hidden tiki temples with Kelly and Tom. Sample over 150 of their original tropical cocktails! These drinks chronicle their time spent bartending at home tiki bars during the rise of the craft cocktail revolution, among them Kirby's Rumpus Room, which hosted weekly parties for many years. Included are riffs on tropical classics and original concoctions crowd-tested at home bars across the USA. You'll also find recipes for home-made syrups, including ancho chilli, lemongrass, sesame, hibiscus, and more.
Sven Kirsten, the authority behind "The Book of Tiki" provides the Foreword. The book features full-page cocktail photos and glamour shots of some of the coolest home tiki bars around. Additionally, you'll find lavish illustrations by Tiki Tony, chapter heading illustrations by Jake Geiger - a tiki aficionado and game designer for such hits as Guitar Hero and Call of Duty - and select featured art by Doug Horne, who is a true lowbrow Leonardo familiar to the tiki scene.
