Reprint 1972 Recommended

I picked up the 1972 print of the Trader Vic's Bar Guide in Shreveport, around 1974.This edition has the original recipes, instead of the mixes in the new publication. I liked the book so much, that from October through December, I spent $800 on spirits to try out recipes inside this well written book. That was a long time ago when you could buy marischino liqueur, the secret ingredient in the original Dacquri recipe... At the time, I was in a dinner party competition. My friends enjoyed it. Boy did I ever have friends! They were waking up on the floor of my apartment and asking for the hang-over cure - a Banana Cow or THE breakfast drink- the Maui Fizz! Wonderful and addictive. Miss you Trader.

Trader Vic's Da'Man!

Fantastic bar guide, covering all standard, and tropical drinks. Learn how to make drinks that taste great, and work great! One note, various editions exit, older ones do not containt the recipe for the famous Mai Tai, newer ones do not give the TRUE recipe, but rather say "use Trader Vic's Mai Tai Mix" (similar for other drinks). TO get all recipes, with BASIC ingred. I suggest buying multiple editions of this text. Learn how to make Hot Buttered Rum Batter, Mai Tai's, Navy Grog, the REAL way! Great Reading, Great experimenting, Great drinks....A Must for the hobby bar tender!

This one's due a reprint

I found a copy of this book in a box in the garage. This is THE book for mixing a wide range of drinks.I have to guard my copy to keep friends and family from walking off with it. If you are into anything from simple bar drinks to frou-frou boat drinks (I recommend the potted parrot and rum keg) this the book for you.

A Must For Every Bartender

Here is Trader Vic's drink legacy in recipe form, with the occasional comment thrown in, as well as an entire gamut of historically important drinks, from cocktails to hot drinks. It gives proper, accurate recipes (with correct brands and types of liquors), wheras current guides (like Mr. Boston) accept inferior substitutes. It is a MUST HAVE for any bar of true distinction. *This was a smartly updated version of his original bartending guide.*

Trader Vic's has got that mondo-lounge feel

While not containing the hippest, up-to-the-moment drinks, this book is a compendium of a lot of the more traditional tropical drinks such as the zombie, the fogcutter, and the scorpion. Trader Vic himself often has a few words about the drinks, and a good section on his bartending philosophy. Well worth going through the trouble of trying to find.
