I was wondering if any of you lucky original Grog Log owners have checked to see whether the original recipes in that book are included in the new Remixed! book. I lost my copy a while back and a replacement is just too expensive. I'm hoping the new book has the original recipes, they were so good!

Mahalo nunui!

I own all of the Bum's books and as far as I can tell the recipes are the same, EXCEPT where noted in Remixed, which does have a number of revisions, all noted and either based on new research or what tastes better.

There are 20 recipes in Grog Log that weren't included in Remixed due to Beachbum Berry declaring they weren't worthy. He explains more on his web site here:

Interesting, I didn't there were that many omissions. Still, I'd recommend Remixed as the latest & greatest of Tiki recipes. I recall there was an "original" drink in "The Grog Log" that turned out to be the Bacardi Cocktail (light rum, lime, grenadine)

i have remixed but do not have grog or or intoxica. i realize that if i have remixed i do not need the other 2 for the recipes, but as far as pics and prose, is there a redeeming reason to also have grog log and intoxica if i already have remixed? if there are great pics that aren't in remixed, that would be reason enough. i wonder if the pics from the older 2 books were used in remixed or if there are new illustrations and photos? so, if i already have remixed, is there a good reason to also have grog log and intoxica?

If you can find Grog Log, Intoxica, and Taboo Table at good prices they are definitely worth having even if you have Remixed. They are black and white spiral bound books that have nothing on Remixed or Sippin Safari as far as visual aesthetics, but they are the books that started us all down the authentic Tiki path and are worth having.

Most of the recipe formulations in Remixed are improvements over the originally published versions, but there are a couple of instances where I prefer the "uncorrected" version.

I would say, get "Remixed" and forget about The "Grog Log" and "Intoxica" unless you want to spend the additional money for those earlier books. Fortunately, I purchased The Grog Log and Intoxica (And Taboo Table) when they each first were available. However, I HIGHLY recommend "Sippin' Safari" if only for the historical background information contained therein. "Remixed" covers and updates the Grog Log and Intoxica recipes as well as adding many new recipes.
Just my opinion.

Being an illustrator meself, the old-school artwork in Grog Log & Intoxica is worth the price of admission alone.

If you're going purely for recipes, it's probably not worth paying the inflated prices I've seen these books go for. If you can get them for cheap tho, don't pass em up. Plus, there's the Krakatoa!

I still think there is a lot to be said for the way a spiral bound book stays open on the selected page on a bartop. And as my old man eyes get worse, I have really come to appreciate the large print in the old books.

Thanks for the feedback, everyone. I will get them. They are really cheap on Amazon right now. I already have Remixed, Sippin Safari and Taboo Table, but it seems the general consensus is that Grog Log and Intoxica are worth having in addition to Remixed. For the recipes alone all I need is Remixed but for the artwork, and just because The Bum wrote them, I think I need the other two. Can't wait for his new book that's coming out soon!!! BTW, Of the re-issues, Intoxica is spiral bound but Grog log isn't. Mahalo
