If, like me, you're a tiki fan but don't have the space or cash to stock an entire bar's worth of liquor, the
is an amazing resource.
The book teaches you the core ingredients, equipment, and techniques for creating a tiki bar that will be the envy of your friends, without overwhelming your wallet or your space. It also has a ton of info on rums, superstar bartenders, garnishes and much more.
One of my favorite things in the book is the 'Minimalist Classic 30' - 30 tiki classics you can make with a core set of ingredients. I created this doc as a companion to the book to help me keep track of my bar - what's in stock, what's running low, and which of the Minimalist 30 cocktails I can make with the ingredients I have on hand. Hopefully it is also useful to others as you build out your tiki bars too!
Note: I – and this doc – am not affiliated with Minimalist Tiki or Cocktail Wonk in any way, just a fan! If you have questions about this doc or want to share feedback, you can tweet me
