Here is my review of Remixed (more like a praise-a-thon) here:

Also here is the chance to meet Jeff 'Beachbum' Berry, Tiki mixmaster/Historian and all around great guy, at Caña (LA's newest Rum Bar) for the book release party of Beachbum Berry Remixed and rock out to some of the 'Bum's' own cocktails.
This WEDNESDAY, APRIL 28, 2010 at Cana Rum Bar, 7PM

Last night's "Remixed" party at Cana (where IS that squiggly thing that goes over the "n"?) was terrific. Great atmosphere, great crowd of Tiki friends and WHAT A WONDERFUL BOOK! It is a wonderful addition to everyone's home bar. Jeff Berry signed books for all, and was a charming host. And Cana is a lovely bar, definitely worth checking out, and conveniently located about one block down from Trader Vic's L.A. Live.

Having read earlier posts, I applaud the ingenuity some of you had to get "Remixed" spiral bound at Kinko's. When I interviewed Mr. Berry recently for Tiki Magazine (the story will be in the next issue) he agreed that the spiral bound makes sense for how they're used, but told me that the problem has been that most major bookstores will NOT sell spiral-bound books! This has actually hampered his book sales in the past. So, please be understanding that, as creative people who need to earn a living, we sometimes have to make choices like potential sales volume over daily practicality.

Much Aloha,

Kari Hendler

Indeed, a wonderful time, with so many old friends coming together. Even Ted Haigh appeared. No one can deny the Bum. Besides the tasty concoctions on the menu, we got to try a 1929 Havana Rum Cordial that was brought in by an attending aficionado. The level of mixology at La Cana follows the tradition of the Doheny, and earlier that day the Bum shared his wisdom (and three different concoctions) with the new generation of L.A. craft mixologists:


The Bum speaks, we drink


A Bum-made beauty!

Thanks to Marcos Tello and the folks at Zaya Rum for facilitating the Bum's presence at this wonderful venue:

Wow. May I just say that being quoted in Beachbum Berry's blog is a true highlight of my tiki life.

I am definitely thinking of copying and spiral binding the jettisoned recipes from Grog Log and Intoxica. Any suggested titles for this new book? "Marooned Cocktails"? "Cocktails Adrift"? "Beachbum Defects"?

"Beachbum's Jetsam"?

"Jetsam Journal"?

Here's one I'd like to see that I came up with back in 2007 ~



It might be a little thin but it would be a good appetizer to hold us over.

Basement Kahuna likes to use Cuarenta Y Tres (Licor 43). I've found two recipes so far that call for it.

Does anyone else's copy have some sort of damage/printer error? I just got my copy off amazon and it has a line of holes from about page 106 to page 140. They go through several pages and also switch from a row on the top to a row on the bottom. I am trying to decide if I want to return it or just live with the damage - I'll probably spill something on it anyway. It looks to be caused during the printing process so I'll just keep it if it is a common problem since I can't imagine Amazon's return process is great. Any advice or thoughts are welcome.

Yours is the limited edition, will go for more $$$$ when and if you ever sell on e-Bay . . . just kidding! That's a printing mishap, you should return and get a replacement . . . don't forget to take the replacement to Kinko's add your own set of holes and have it spiral bound for ease of use in the field!

Amazon is great about returns. I'd recommend getting a new one.

I can't find Beachbum Berry's explanation of why the recipes were omitted from Remixed. I checked his blog. Can't find the info. Is there a link to that part of the blog, or can someone tell me?

Wow, I wish I'd ordered 10 or 15 copies, when I bought Remixed, just over a year ago,... for $16.47. I could sell them at a nice markup, and still give everyone a good deal.

(If I really HAD bought 15, though, I'm quite sure Remixed would be selling for $6.95, now!)

There are two places to currently get brand new Beachbum Berry books at list price:
1: The manufacturer SLG publishing:
http://www.slgcomic.com or order by phone 1 877 754 7877
2: Kegworks: http://www.kegworks.com/ or order by phone 877-636-3673.
Both places sell the books for the same price. Remixed is $24.95
SLG has free shipping if you spend more than $25 and they send it standard mail.
Kegworks does not have free shipping but it automatically goes priority.
My suggestion is that if you don't spend $25, order from Kegworks and it will go priority, but if you spend $25 or more, order from SLG and get free standard shipping.
