I am saddened that there isn't more appreciation of Kahuna Kevin's cocktails on this website. Last
Night some friends and I had the following:

Irish Nutjob, morphine bowl, 151 gun swizzle, Roswell '47, Holo Holo Lolo, and the Ratbasher.

ALL were amazing and unique.

I just thought he needs more recognition.

Ok, you got me to run online and by Vol 1 and Vol 2. Vol 1 has been on my "want list" since a Hukilau a few years ago, but I already own a huge number of under-used cocktail recipe books and I'm short on shelf space on my bar, so I've been putting it off. But they are SPIRAL BOUND so I will only splash stuff onto a single page instead of two... I'm looking forward to the recipes - it's always fun to try new stuff. Time to schedule a cocktail party at the house - SOON!

Completely agree with you Anestiki. Unfortunately i cannot make very many of the drinks Kahuna Kevin has created as most of the ingredients are just not available to me here in Australia, however, when the second volume came out i bought an extra copy for a friend who works in one Australias best bars (they win awards just about every year in various categories) and we made 4 or 5 drinks from it substituting ingredients where we had to and every one was amazing. All the bartenders at the bar were quite impressed themselves, with one drink going upstairs for a couple of them to sample and coming back empty.

Also, i actually spent a day with Kevin at his house on my recent trip to the U.S. and got to try another 6 or 7 drinks which were all extremely good and would have to say that even though i visited quite a few Tiki bars on my trip, the best tropical cocktails that i had would probably have been Kevins.

P.S. Good choice with the Ratbasher (page 36 in volume 2). A custom drink made for me in a custom mug i made for him.

Yup, thanks Kevin, I saw the notification from Amazon a few minutes ago. Dang, you're speedy! Should have asked you to personalize them for me, I didn't think about it... Every review I've seen leads me to believe there will be gold in them thar books... Can't wait for them to arrive.

So yeah, his drinks are amazing! My husband and I have been priviledged to try many of his concoctions, the new Phantom Tiki will rock your inner Rumologist like no other. He always surprises with unique flavors, combinations and secretly sneaking absinthe into our rum drinks. I honestly can't say enough about how diverse his drinks are and how fun to re-create for others, our liquor cabinet looks very differently now than it did before the first book came out, just because we never realized the depth of enjoyment you could reach with quality ingredients and recipes. No more rum and rootbeer, even the standard grog has been upgraded, and we love it! Kahuna Kevin, drink on, our glasses are forever full when you have a new cocktail in mind!

When you add Vol. 1 to the cart then try to add Vol. 2, it just replaces 1 with 2. It will just keep swapping them out and not let you add both. Do the entire orders have to be done seperately?

Hmmm something is screwy. Try doing separate orders for now and add a note, sorry my host keeps updating their page builder app and I think it's messing with the older Paypal code I'm using.
