Smuggler’s Cove

Tiki drinks are going through a bit of a renaissance these days and thanks to books like Smuggler’s Cove that’s not a bad thing. Whereas many old recipes and iterations of tiki drinks are downright awful due to poor ingredients and improper preparation, authors Martin and Rebecca Cate offer recipes which are big on flavor and light on syrups, creams, and other high calorie additives. The book is also a treasure trove of information about tiki and exotica, and explains and decodes the history of both the drinks and the people and bars who created them.
