Hey fellow mixologists. I have some good things in the works. I could not wait to share.

I am working on a new website for those of us who mix from the Grog Log and Intoxica. It will be the companion to the books.

You will sign in and there will be a page with all the ingredients from all the recipes. You click on the ones you have, and then it will give you a list of all the recipes you can make, and what page they are on in the book! No more hunting!

Plus, you will be able to rate the recipes 1-10 and add your comments. This way, you can suggest a better way to prepare the drink, or a place to find Stroh cheap, etc.

This announcement is just a tease for now. I have been working on the code when I have time. I am likely going to get it out to you as soon as I can and add to it as I go. So maybe there will be the first view later this week.

I was just wishing I had my copies of those books here at work.

This will be fantastic for making booze shopping trips on my way home!

I'll be able to print a recipe out and not worry about getting it all wet.

A registration like HumuHumu has on Critiki would work well, I'll bet that's already what you've got in mind!

Good luck with it Swanky, I'll be one of the first to sign up!

NICE!! I can't wait to see it. I was thinking about doing something similar that I could keep on my PDA. That way I could have it with me anytime when someone says... "hey Bill, make me one of those Tiki drinks you keep talking about."

Do you have all the info in a database or spreadsheet or what?

I assume that the actual recipes will not be on the site so you still need the books to make the drinks.

Great idea!

WOW!! That is an awesome idea! It also sounds like a great way to try drinks you haven't had yet. And perhaps a way to use up that bottle of Creme de Cassis lurking in the back of my liquor cabinet.

Good name, too!

Great idea! I'm with Klas in thinking that the actual recipes shouldn't be on there. The books are cheap enough to be available to anyone who can afford a bottle of rum and some mixers....

This will save a massive amount of page-turning.

Yep, that's right. The results won't show the recipe, just the name, which book and the page number. It's a companion to the books only.

doh! Guess I'll have to laminate my copy!

That is fantastic though, webtender.com has a similar idea...you can put in all the ingredients you have on hand and come up with a list of drinks to make. The only problem is that every Don, Vic and Harry have recipes on there that you really don't want!

Okay, so I'll add a feature where you can pick an ingredient, like Pimento Liqueur and it will show you all you can make with your ingredients and that single one. So if you get something new, you'll see exactly what you can make with it.

Any more ideas?

Swanky,
That's a great idea, a perfect companion to the books.

I was trying to think of more features.
First I thought of displaying the results in a way that could group the drinks according to strength and dominant tastes (sweet, sour, bitter), but then I realized it's highly subjective, and the strength meter in the books is not always accurate.
Then, I thought that you might want to sort out the results by popularity (after sufficient user data accumulates).

I think you covered that "must have" features, and all the rest is only "nice to have".

I'll be looking forward to using it.
Mahalo,

Ran

I have got the first working (I think!) version of it up now HERE

Create your user, select your items and see what it tells you.

There is a lot more work to be done, so don't be too critical, just tell me if you see something that is seriously wrong.

And if you get error messages, it likely means I am coding it right then and it'll be fixed as soon as I get it done again!

Once you have created your account, go HERE to access the Grogalizer.

Oh yeah, I only have the Grog Log in there now. Anyone wanna do some typing for me?
