Dan,

Thanks for the quick and considerate response. I agree with the Master of Leisure that most folks who buy Jeff's books are using it as a cocktail cookbook and would snatch up the recipie only "bar friendly" versions.

I'd love a "bar friendly" version. Spiral bound and liquid-proof is the only way to go for those who use the books on a regular basis.

Got my 4 copies in the mail 2 days ago. (I want to have extra copies this time for those friends who try my drinks and say "Dang! Where I can get recipes like this?) The book is so full of eye-candy ephemera that I can't wait to read through the whole thing. I've already scoped out a few of the new drinks to try this coming weekend.

Here is the Beachbum Berry Remixed Trailer:

I thought trailers were for movies. Is this the first in a new trend of trailers for books?

Harrumph. I agree completely.

That said, the book is another triumph from The Bum. Well worth the wait.

I couldn't wait for Amazon either so I paid the extra cash and bought direct from SLG. Fast delivery and well packaged. Cheers.
This baby is going to get plenty of usage, much like my other Beachbum Bibles.

Dan - you'll find a very receptive crowd for spiral-bound here - count me in for 3.




Count me in on that too. Actually I think you'd find that most cocktail people, not just tiki people, would love to have this book spiral bound - perhaps done the same way that Quarry Books did with the second edition of Ted Haigh's masterful Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails.

That book appears to be a hardcover, but with a spiral binding inside so that the book can be laid flat on a counter while you make the drink. It's incredibly useful, especially for drinks with lots and lots of ingredients.

Honestly I'd consider buying both versions of a book with history and recipes in it. The spiral-bound for making the drinks and the more standard binding for reading the history and stories behind the drinks.

We were just talking about how we miss that it isn't spiral bound Saturday night - it's hard to actually *use* this book "live" in the bar, as you'd have to break the binding to get it to lay flat so you can read it while mixing, then all the pages would fall out & that wouldn't be good.....

So, yes, for those who will actually do more than put it on their bookshelf to look nice, a spiral bound version would be WONDERFUL!!!!

Please, Please

It's not the most elegant, but in a pinch you could have Kinko's cut the binding off and then have them spiral bind it.

I wondered if I was the only one having the problem of 'using' this book. A cookbook holder works, (this is the one I have: http://www.amazon.com/Clear-Solutions-Jumbo-Cookbook-Holder/dp/B0000DE1MV/ref=pd_sbs_k_3 )but it's not really ideal if your bar has limited 'real estate' on top of it..

I would happily buy the books over again for spiral bound copies, especially if the pages were coated.

Cancelled my Amazon and bought the SLG. Looking at the new Grogalizer going live very soon and want these recipes in there.

I also would like a more usable version. The font in Sippin is hard to read as it is and then you get in the bar... I end up picking my recipes in advance and writing notes.

I have seen just plastic ones of those for probably way cheaper.

With the new book you have the information wonderfully and beautifully presented for your bar. Which means that you can now beat the crap our of your grog log (if it hasn't been already). Use the Grog Log on the bar, present Remixed to company.

Win-Win! Or whatever the kids are calling it these days.
