It looks glorious!!!!!! I bet it looks better with bitters and rum spilled on it. I am very excited to see what pleasures Beachbum as made and or discovered. Do we start a new thread on which one is our favorite out of the book? I am still in waiting but stocked up and mixes made to experiment!

Nestled between my two favorite mugs is my newest treasure. Remixed by Beachbum Berry a gallery of tiki drinks. It came today and real excited about it.

I'm asking for your favorite recipes from it.

Savage Tiki, based on that photo, it looks like you've already indulged in a few of the recipes.

I've been experimenting with the book for around a week now. It took a little while to track down CHERRY HEERING and BENEDICTINE here in DC (The Liquor Store on M and 31st in G-Town has everything!)

Got my copy spiral bound at Kinkos. It came out exactly like Leisure Master's. It took one day and $11.39. They took mine apart. All I had to do was drop off the book.

B-ware151,
Did you give them any specific specifications?
Can you post a pic of your newly bound copy?
If you had it to do again would you do it the same way or tweek it a certain way?

Yee-haw! I received my copy from Amazon yesterday, and have already made two drinks from it! Beautiful work, and I love all the "update" codings. It's amazing how affordable this book is considering all the work the Bum put into the original versions and this update (as much as he claims to avoid work). Now comes the expensive part--deciding which $20-30 bottles of specialty liquors and liqueurs for recipes that call for only a few drops (and don't come in 50ML bottles) to slowly invest in.

Yes, I am curious to know also, my local shop says they can do it quick and cheap but would need to take off about inch cutting the binding.

I asked them to cut the binding as close as possible. That's all. I compared mine to an un-altered copy and it lost 3/16" of the total width. So, looking more carefully at Leisure Master's picture, I see that the spirals of mine edge pretty close to the text (within 1/16", but never touch or intrude) while his has a little more clearance. Otherwise, it looks exactly like his picture.

I would not change a thing. It looks as though it came this way from the publisher. They do offer the option of puttng some sort of protective covers on the front and back. I declined since it is a kitchen/bar copy that should show its battle scars, IMO.

Got mine today too!! What a great book--the new drink recipes look awesome. I've already ordered the St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram and in reading this thread, found out that Taboo Table is finally back, so I ordered that too. Thanks to all for spreading the word on Table, I've been waiting for months to get it! Now to the drink making.

I just got my copy today and I'm a little overwhelmed by the invaluable information and vintage tiki imagery. There's even the recipe for the notorious Mai Tai 3000 (it's time to make some damn rum jello!). If only Dr. Funks still sold for $1.25 at bars.

Hey, has anyone else noticed missing recipes in Remixed? I just got my copy today and noticed three recipes in a row from Intoxica are not there: Coconut Willie, Del Coronado and Demerara Dry Float.

I'd planned to give my Grog Log and Intoxica to a friend, but now I realize I'm going to have to go through them with a fine toothed comb to see if any other recipes have been left out.

It'd be interesting to know if this was an error or if the Bum meant to do this.
