it was amazing

Sippin' Safari has some truly rare information. Jeff Berry has clearly done some serious research to gather these recipes and the stories behind them. The vintage artwork and Tiki paraphernalia on every page livens things up quite a bit.
Even if it weren't for the recipes, it would be just about worth reading the book for this passage alone:
...they drank tobacco juice until they threw up, crapped themselves, and fainted, at which point their spirit was released to commune with the gods.

The recipes, though, are the real cornerstone of Sippin' and they're all listed in the index. The Drink Ingredient Glossary is also an extremely handy reference which can double as a shopping list.
