5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular Cocktail Book!!! Nov. 21 2006
By Lori Mousseau - Published on Amazon.com
My husband and I went to Tahiti for our honeymoon. I saw this book on Amazon.com and I just had to have it. The pictures, facts and drinks were amazing!

I decided to have a Tahitian party last weekend with my family and friends. I was able to recreate the Tahitian cocktails we had on our honeymoon and share some interesting facts about the islands, as well as, the hotels in the French Polynesia. The cocktails were so easy to make and they looked so festive. I was able to recreate the look of the cocktail by using the pictures in the book. Everyone at my party kept raving about how much they loved what they were drinking and wanted to see the Tahitian cocktail book. After looking at the book - they just had to have a copy. I was so excited about their requests, I can order this book on-line and have it shipped to my home just in time for Christmas. I do not have to "fight" the crowds at the mall! My party was a huge Tahitian success!

If you want to bring the French Polynesia Islands to your home and experience paradise - I highly recommend this book. Thank you for making my party festive and memorable!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous Books and Lot of Fun! Nov. 14 2006
By Kelly M. Neaton - Published on Amazon.com
My husband and I love this book. We went to Tahiti on our honeymoon and this book was given to us by a friend after we returned home. This book has so many pretty photographs from the amazing hotels in Tahiti, Bora Bora and the other islands as well as some nature shots from around the islands. There really is nothing like the hotels in Bora Bora. I wish we had the book before our trip because there were a lot of neat trivia facts in the book about Tahiti that would that it would have been good/fun to know in advance.

The photos of the cocktail drinks are gorgeous. Not only are they gorgeous, but they are easy to make and very tasty too! I have another cocktail book where the recipes are exotic but use ingredients that are complicated and make it too hard to really try many of the drinks. This book is just the opposite, there's a good variety of drinks and they are all practical and not too hard to make at home. Also, the different mai tai recipes were very interesting and very different. The first pages of information on making drinks - creating cocktails and discussions on the fruits used and liquors used are fairly standard but still good.

Anyway, we love this book because it is so pretty, and we love the drinks and the hotels in it. It is a great souvenir from a perfect trip. I'd highly recommend this book as a gift to anyone who is going to Tahiti or has been to Tahiti.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Book Dec 8 2006
By Mike Rickard - Published on Amazon.com
I have never been to Tahiti, but after reading the fun, informative facts about Tahiti, seeing the beautiful pictures, and sampling some of the excellent cocktail recipes, I am ready to go!

Mr. Bondurant's love and knowledge of Tahiti come through clearly in the book, which is very well laid out. It provides enough information and explains things in such a way that an amateur can make delicious Tahitian cocktails as well as the most experienced bartender. The fun facts about Tahiti, along with summaries of the total hotels and the gorgeous pictures, makes this book a must have.

Until I can take my first trip to Tahiti, this book will help bring a little Tahiti to my home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Experience a whole new world of Cocktails! April 27 2007
By J. Royce - Published on Amazon.com
Always looking for new and exciting cocktails to try, I purchased this book. Each page became more interesting, not only for the drinks presented but for the knowledge that Mr. Bondurant shares about Tahiti, it's culture, local accomodations, etc.

The photos are exceptional and each drink I have mixed has been better than the last. I have bought several as gifts for coworkers and friends. You won't be disappointed!
