BTW Ace your books went out this afternoon. Many thanks!



Got the books in yesterday's mail, took a brief look. WOW! Then took 'em to work to look some more and share with co-workers. The books are worth buying just for the humorous drink titles and the comments! Had many of us at work laughing out loud and longing to make many of the recipes mentioned. The recipes are complex and very tasty sounding - generally lots of ingredients - I can't even begin to imagine how costly and fun the R&D was. I have a decently well-stocked bar, and I see that I have to go shopping for even more rums and syrups after I make some decisions on which drinks to start with. (I'm not complaining.) The Bac-O-Tini is intriguing...

Kevin, very nice job with the printing -- the high-gloss finish makes the pages very durable and spill resistant, I'm very pleased and impressed. The spiral binding is also awesome. Overall a great value and a quality product which supports (and encourages) the use of quality rums and freshest possible ingredients.

My conclusion - prior to mixing any of the drinks - "Thar be fun in them thar pages!" Add these books to your birthday and Christmas wish lists NOW... Not for the faint-of-heart with minimalist bars. Ideal for those seeking adventure and who seek to expand their collection of quality rums and mixers and impress their friends. Perfect way to help Kevin recover what must have been a massive R&D expenditure, not to mention the wear-and-tear on his liver.

Let the fun begin!

Thanks Ace!! Your book shipped tonight, Ltd. art poster will likely go out Friday or Saturday (I'm out of mailing tubes - oops!). Mugs, I'm waiting for word from Tiki Diablo, should know in a couple days on the ETA. Yes I will sign them for you, just will take a bit longer to get due to Tiki Diablo having to send them my way first to sign repackage and mail. Will be 2 separate boxes, I don't like to mail breakables together (I'll eat the extra costs).

(Just realized my banner below is way out of date, my books are rebranded to Kahuna Kevin's Tiki Cocktails Vol. I -III, new logo and black covers, same great content!)

PS as of today I have 3 Blue mugs and 9 Green left to sell. Order now to get on the backorder list, cause they're gonna disappear soon. Only 25 of each color. Sorry for the long production waits, but it'll be worth it, promise!

Thanks, Kevin, I'm looking forward to receiving these. Didn't realize that Tiki Diablo drop ships them for you -- I'd be happy to cover the additional cost. Those really are limited edition mugs - 25 of each is very cool.

I remember back when I ordered volumes 1 and 2 that your customer service and shipping was awesome. You (and your liver) rock.

Cheers!

Thanks! Yes I'm still a one man operation, so if you email or purchase something, I send a message or reply usually within minutes to update on shipping estimates.
