Received the book yesterday and it's incredible. Not just a reprinting with 55 new pages and 14 new "lost" recipes (which would have still been welcome, of course). The layout is completely new throughout and even the previously-published recipes have updated historical context and are much easier to read this time. Also updated ingredient/product information for things which have become available since 2007. You'll recognize some images from the previous version, but overall this feels like a very different book which a lot of work went into (and not the double-dip some of you may be suspecting). Similar feel to "Potions of the Caribbean," but much more dense with eye-candy. Have only made it through the preface so far, but I'm already very thankful this exists.

Hmmmmm... Makes me wonder if other books released recently had an influence on what was required for an update to Sippin' Safari? It's a whole new world for these sorts of books now.

Makes me feel speshul because I picked up a copy of the first version right when it came out. Does that mean I was involved in all this tiki stuff in some manner ahead of some of the "tiki revival?" Cool! I'm old!

Ordered mine delivered to Cocktail Kingdom... but can't pick it up until next week.

Excited to see the new content in there and try a few new things out!

Is there any chance that the book will be listed on amazon, too?

Finally got mine. It was two days late (which is awful considering how much $$ the shipping was, plus I was jonesing to read it). So much better than the original version, so definitely worth it. Berry's writing style is so wonderful and fun to read. I have all of Berry's books going back to the original Grog Log and it's so interesting reading his rum and ingredient recommendations, since the market changes so much.

I like others added to my order. Picking up the very fine (and very light) Beachbum Berry Zombie glasses.

Welp...I finally got it! It’s Fantastic!!!!!

Such a great update to The Bum’s greatest book (IMHO)

One item I thought was curious: The Bum removed The Aku Aku Zombie from the Zombie chapter. Hmmm...

I've noticed there are multiple recipes omitted from both Safari 10th and Remixed. Not a lot, mind you, but with all the focus on the additional recipes, the omissions struck me as odd.

Can anyone who now has the new edition tell me if there's a recipe for the Mauna Loa cocktail from Kon-Tiki? Berry references it a couple of times in the original book (and I assume in the new version, too), but there was no recipe provided.

Nope, sorry.
