Found this in Imgur (link below) posted by someone who says "I'm working with someone who used to work at hilton in London during the 80's. He bring back these 2 treasures and a cocktail list." I've seen the book before, but the typed drink recipes are interesting! Wonder if these are legit?

Some of these sound familiar so I'm guessing they are in Trader Vic's Bartender's Guide or similar to that but interesting to see them broken out in what looks like a back bar manual.

EDIT -- a couple variations but by and large these are in the Guide. Have not seen the Frankenstein presented with a specific syrup before for example.

Hmmm...I'd like to know what is in the Frankenstein Syrup.

Indeed. The 1980's was a dark time for tiki, but this book is still a great part of tiki history. Hopefully it'll make it's way to someone to properly preserve it.

I would bet Beachbum Berry has either seen these recipes or has copies. Love it! I need to try a few of these.
