I have cocktail napkins with recipes all over the place; This Christmas I got a little black book so I could use it instead (and transcribe all the previous scrawls).

It's perfect - It has little monkeys on it.

Just curious, all you guys with the black books. Do you have the recipes in any particular order or what? I too have a lot of recipes all over the place but don't know quiet how to do it right.

Don't know about the rest of the Mix-monkeys here...... I have my little book broken down into catagories (classic, tropical, etc...) and then I just add them as I get them. I took a highlighter and marked the page edges for each 'chapter' so I can open to the catagory and just go from there. Maybe not the most organized, but it makes it way easier to add recipes.


OK, now that we have all fessed up to our little black books, anyone willing to share anything from the INSIDE of your treasures? I'll go first.....

Modified Margarita:
1/2 oz fresh lime (a bit more is OK)
1 oz Parfait Amour (lavendar colored orange liquor)
1 1/2 oz Silver Agave Tequilia (I like Milagro)

Shake like hell and strain into cocktail glass. For best presentation salt one-third of the rim, colored sugar on one-third and nothing on the last third.

The Parfair Amour gives the cocktail an odd color but the taste more than makes up for it.

That's where a binder, instead of a journal, would come in really handy. Mine's a journal and I just jot down recipes as I find or create them. And since I cannot interchange the pages, they're in the order that I write them in.

O used to keep my drink recipes in a small spiral notebook but about 4 years ago I downloaded a free recipe database ("Cooking Aficionado" by Lime Peak) and created a category called "THE BAR IS OPEN" where I transposed all my old recipes and have been adding new ones ever since. When I joined TC, I set up a category simply called "TIKI" where I keep recipes (drinks as well) that I've discovered in this forum. I back it up on a CD. I can Edit, Remove, Include pictures, print and email directly from this program. It works well for my needs.

Here's the website for Lime Peak's free "Cooking Aficionado" recipe database: http://www.limepeak.com/ca/
I downloaded it yesterday and I like what I see so far.

I have no organization scheme at all. Mine isn't focused, everything is in there: drinks, soups, baked goods. One after the other in the order that I work on them. I know it's a bad idea but that's how I roll when in the kitchen, fast and loose (except the pages are bound...).
