I have a good supply of the 151. I am down to my final bottle of the regular strength. I'll look into GatroRob's source when I get ready to order again this summer. I just unpacked my bar, and now I know what I have and don't have. Glad to see I have a spare bottle of TV Passion Fruit Syrup as The Bum says they have changed the recipe far for the worse.

In celebration, I made 3 new recipes from the books last night. Nice to be crossing them off the list again.

Really? Damn. I just got a bottle of TV yesterday and was stoked. When was the change? any elaboration?

From what he said, they no longer make it with natural ingredients and it is more akin to kool aid now. I have not had any myself.

While you still have that bottle, how about trying to make some homemade until you get a similar taste?

Some previous attempts at home-made passion fruit syrup are here:

I'm sure that a bunch of us would appreciate your efforts!

Well Fudge Stripe! Geez. Well, we found the problem today. After messing with it, it was clear. POsted with apostrophes and quotes were causing sql errors! It has nothing to do with size. A little htmlspecialchars and well be good to go again...

I have been intending to add actual recipes into the Grogalizer, and I have started with a bang! Now on the Grogalizer, when you have the appropriate ingredients, you will be given the recipes for 3 of Basement Kahuna's personal creations, as well as the top three recipes from the Tiki Central Drink Contest. These recipes need to be utilized more often and this is a great way for the serious mixologists to get them into action.

In the future I hope to start adding vintage recipes from various books. For now, I have added these 6 winners.

Hi Swanky,

Yesterday we (Waitiki) found ourselves in a pinch, on Block Island, about to do a show, and NO DRINKS!! *(By that I mean, of course, what civilized tikiphiles the world over consider "drinks")* We asked about drinks at the club, and they said, "Oh, yeah, we'll make anything you want!" I asked about cocktails and the response was, "Sure, we got a special today, Captain and Coke, $6!" I asked about Mai Tai's, and got a blank stare.

Mr. Ho says to me, "I wish there were some on-line resource we could consult here." Thinking quickly, I told him about the Grogalizer! He asked if it were handheld friendly, and I assured him that I sure hoped so. Surely, I thought, Swanky, being the practical-minded drinker that he is, as well as the thirst-irstiest of them all, would have foreseen this set of circumstances, and made the appropriate contingencies for handheld accessibility. Well, we were able to log in, get the ingredients on hand entered, but we were kept waiting for a response that never came. Is this something that can be looked into for future such contingencies? Mr. Ho uses a Palm Treo on Sprint.

On behalf of Waitiki, OKU, and the entire village of Okonkuluku, I thank you for your attention.

I've been at a couple of bars recently where I needed the ingredients of certain cocktails to guide the bartender. My source was www.wiki.webtender.com and fairly easily accessible on my Treo.

Post your own recipes if they're not already there.

Hmmm. Ms Swanky uses a Palm Treo as well. I will have to investigate. It might simply be an issue of speed, but I'll try it with hers and see if I get a response. If not, then look for wap.swankpad.org/grogalizer...

Honestly, it is nothing more than a table, so, no special html that won't work. The only issue might be the way the forms are posted, but, if you can log in, it is unlikely there would be any issues with that afterwards.

OKon.!

yea, i think it's form-related. i had to use google to look up the site - and I got googles wap-friendly conversion page served up. i logged in with tim's credentials and i think i passed it since i got the checkboxes and began selecting items. however, upon posting the form, the response was a blank page (or missing the main body area). are you using straight, validated xhtml for the site? that would be a good start...or maybe we could write a wap-friendly front-end for tiki handheld users (mr. ho happens to be a long-time UI designer too

Tried and tested with Palm Treo. Works fine, but it is slow for the page of recipes info to load. It has to all get generated before you see anything. Patience!

We are working on adding Sippin Safari to the Grogalizer. We have all the new ingredients in the system, but only about 1/4 of the recipes, if that. I'll let you know when they are all there. Should be done this week sometime.

I am not sure what you will see with all the recipes that have a name only in there and no ingredient list. You may have a large number of false positive recipe hits. Sorry. It'll be fixed soon enough.
