Shannon Mustipher, the resident rum expert at Glady’s Caribbean in Brooklyn, has just published “Tiki: Modern Tropical Cocktails,” the first cocktail recipe book written by a working African American bartender and released by a major publisher in more than 100 years.

Mustipher’s book is what she calls a “theater for the senses” where, as in her home bar, calypso, zouk and mambo tunes meet verdant plants and colorful décor, and cocktails come alongside plates of curry goat, jerk chicken, and ackee with saltfish. The book gives a nod to the tiki canon and a new frontier of island-inspired drinks, from the earthy Martiniquais Ti’ Punch with white agricole blanc, to the bright Parasol made with banana syrup. Mustipher hopes her book will transport readers. She can rest easy — anywhere her drinks are is a place you want to go.



Got this from Humuhumu's instagram post, tomorrow at TV Emeryville.
