Besides the 70s and 40s editions of Trader Vic's Bartenders Guide and Beachbum Berry's stuff, I don't have a clue where else to look if I want to learn more about tiki mixology.

Can anyone suggest any other recipe books? Doesn't matter how old or hard to find.

Look for one called "Okolemeluna" A late 60-70's tropical drink book.

Here it is on Ebay. Comes up regularly.

Thanks Swanky, I would never have heard of that one otherwise. I just got one from Amazon for $10 shipped and they have several more. As for a bibliography, that would be a fun undertaking. Of course it would have to be extensively annotated based upon a thorough investigation of the various libations in each publication....

I ordered a copy of this book too.

I have a huge collection of bartenders books, and many of them are tiki classics, but I didn't have that one either.

Great call on that one Swanky

I just found several copies on abebooks.com and alibris. Now we all can have one without an unecessary bidding war on Ebay.

Mine arrived today. I'd say it's worth having but most of the drinks are very simple and sound that exciting. The cover and some of the illustrations are great.
