My copy just arrived. Had a quick flick through it and it looks awesome. Can't wait to read it properly. Have a few things to do today and then i'm going to get stuck into it when I get back home. I think I might get mine spiral bound though as well and buy another spare copy later.

I got my copy spiral-bound yesterday at Kinko's for just six bucks - and now to use my new pineapple corer to make a Boo Loo in a pineapple.

Let us know how it turns out! Can you post some photos?

Be sure to put a rating on Grogalizer, too, please!

Regarding the "missing" recipes . . . my assumption would be that they needed no adjustment and were left alone.

Even so, I am quite disappointed because it doesn't say anywhere that lots of recipes are missing from Grog Log and Intoxica. The description just says "a completely revised and updated anthology of Grog Log and Intoxica!" and "featuring 107 additional recipes".

That means you can't buy REMIXED instead of GROG LOG and INTOXICA! - to get all recipes you need to have all three of them... which in my opinion is VERY annoying. That said, REMIXED is still a great book.

As I stated earlier, I was very surprised as well. And there's no explanation as to why the missing recipes were deleted -- Berry decided he didn't like them? He couldn't verify if they were the original recipes? He's saving them for a future book?

Besides the 28 missing from Intoxica, I think I counted 13 missing from Grog Log. 41 recipes is enough for a separate book. Maybe copy the missing recipes and spiral bind them as "The Lost Recipes."

What are some examples? Maybe they are in the public domain?

Since I don't own Intoxica, I used Grogalizer to find out which 28 recipes didn't make it to Remixed, googled them and actually found all recipes except for MAUI SUNRISE, PEQUOD PUNCH and PIÑA BANANA.

Following the example of Leisure Master and others here, I had my copy of Remixed spiral bound at Staples (no Kinkos around here) while I waited. It took less than 10 minutes and cost $1.00 for trimming (I asked that they trim as close as possible to the original spine) and $3.50 for black spiral binding. The result was awesome, a bit closer to the edge of the recipe contents than the technique employed by Leisure Master, but still no binding holes through them. Great suggestion...

For those of you who haven't seen the site yet, or those that haven't checked it out in a while, the latest podcast by Koop Kooper (#120) has an awesome interview with Beachbum Berry about his latest book Remixed.
Check it out here.

I got my copy of "REMIXED" hand-delivered by my wife Naomi to Prague today! What a treat! OK, so I am a visualist more than a mixologist, but how come no one so far has cared to mention how ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS this new tome is. There is so much to see (AND mix), who cares what's "missing"!? The drink displays by JP Balak and Cass McClure are a fanciful feast for the eyes to behold, and seamlessly blend with the vintage menu illustrations. If anyone can resist the lure of a Tiki potion after these tempting treats, they have to be made of stone...or prefer to get stoned. Do not show this book to minors, it's seductive imagery may send them down the wrong track! (This is a compliment)

Has anybody found any of Basement Kahuna's Recipes in the Grogalizer yet? I must be missing some ingredients that he likes to use, because I haven't found any so far.

Jeff, the book looks a lot like Sippin' Safari, only even more pages and recipes. It is a real tour de force.

BK's recipes are there, trust me! Make sure you have it in your resources, not that it should matter as a default.

The images have some very over the top garnishes on them, that is for sure. Pay close attention.

Jeff, the layout is definitely in the vein of Sippin Safari. I enjoy the way he grouped the different variations on a cocktail theme.
