Description: Trader Vic's Trading Post is one of the notable landmarks across the bay from San Francisco. As Lucius Beebe says in his introduction, "Trader Vic's is, however, a great deal more than just an Oakland institution. Its influence is as wide as the Pacific and as deep as a Myrtle Bank punch."
Vic probably knows more about rum and what can be done with it than anyone living, but he has plenty of ideas too on Tall Ones, Punches, Cocktails, and Short Hoists, and there is a chapter on The Butterflies, Whips and Jingles, or what is commonly known as the Hangover.
He also gives menus and recipes for succulent South Sea dishes and suggests how you can decorate your room or garden to look like an island paradise. All ingredients and materials recommended by Trader Vic are readily available.
Here is more than a drink manual or cookbook, for Trader Vic gives you a gay blueprint for good living, salted with wit and inimitable comment.
Condition: Good condition. Minor jacket wear at edges.
