Beachbum Berry's Sippin' Safari by SLG PUBLISHING
Beachbum Berry's Sippin' Safari by SLG PUBLISHING

The new book by the Author of The Grog Log, Intoxica and Taboo Table. Beach Bum Berry, as he is better known, is America's leading authority on tropical drinks and Polynesian pop-culture. In this all new book, Berry not only offers up tantalizing new drink recipes, but tells stories about some of the most famous figures of their time. The Bum applies the same dogged research to the untold stories of the people behind the drinks, stories culled from over 100 interviews with those who actually created the mid-century Tiki scene -- people as colorful as the drinks they invented, or served, or simply drank. 8/24/2007 (Price: $19.95) [Add to my Inquiry Basket][?]
