    One thought on “Potions of the Caribbean: 500 Years of Tropical Drinks and the People Behind Them”

    1. The ultimate guide to tikis history as well a European exploration and conquest of "land-grabbing" during the era of imperialism, slavery, and pirating (along with old Indian and colonial libations). Jeff Berry covers the creation of the much debated Mai Tai (Trader Vic vs Don the Beachcomber) as well as a nod to the long forgotten Joe Scialom (a giant whom spoke 9 languages and masterfully designed cocktail blue prints while believing 3/4 of the cocktail was customers perception of the creation [...]

    2. Jeff Beachbum Berry has done for tropical drinks what Mad Men has done for the 1960s: infused a wonderful story with a historical backdrop that makes the tale (and history) even more compelling. Only, the Bum's characters are real! From Christopher Columbus to Ernest Hemingway and Jimmy Buffet, Potions of the Caribbean pays tribute to the cocktails and the creators who made them famous. This is a must-read for any fan of Tiki drinks with a thirst for historical knowledge. Bravo, Mr. Berry!

    3. I received this book as a gift and originally planned to use it primarily for the recipes. This would have been a mistake. While Berry claims to be writing a book about cocktails, he has inadvertently written a fascinating and well-researched history of the tropics spanning from early discovery through colonialism and the slave trade and up to today. Given the importance of alcohol, he tells about how we influenced the region and how the region's culture permeated our own. I find all of this con [...]

    4. This is an absolutely beautiful book I will go back to again and again. I'd say 90% of my reading is via e-readers but I got this hardback book via import and it is simply delightful.It is a joy to hold and a joy to flick through. The art direction in the book is excellent - as well as photographs, there are kitsch menus, tourist leaflets, maps and so much more. The spirit of the Caribbean cocktail history at any point of time is vividly illustrated and captures so much of the culture.Ostensibly [...]

    5. Fascinating history of the drinks of the Caribbean and the people who made them. I made a few of them and DAMN were they tasty, and deceptively easy to drink!Do yourself and your bar a favor, and read this book. Great pictures will enthrall you and easy instructions will have you slingin' dranks like it is your job.

    6. A great history book. So much wonderful information about these great drinks, where they came from and the geniuses who concocted them.

    7. Great read as usual, because the author makes the cocktails seem like archaeology. Can't wait for our next tiki party.
