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.
