Beachbum Berry Remixed
Enjoying that Jet Pilot? Do you like a good Zombie, Nui Nui, or Jungle Bird? Well, without Beachbum Berry’s Grog Log (1998) and Intoxica! (2002), we couldn’t have this conversation. These two groundbreaking books revealed the top-secret, never-before-published, “lost” exotic drink recipes from Tiki’s original midcentury heyday. The Bum has unearthed a lot more recipes since his first two books, and picked up a lot more drink lore too. He spills it all in Beachbum Berry Remixed, a completely revised and updated anthology of Grog Log and Intoxica!
In March 2012, Class magazine listed Remixed as one of its top 20 “must-have” cocktail books. Remixed is the book the Bum would have written first if he knew then what he knows now. Featuring 107 additional recipes: 41 newly discovered, previously unpublished vintage Tiki drink recipes; 43 of the best new recipes from today’s Tiki revival, gathered especially for Remixed from the world’s top mixologists and cocktail writers; and 23 new original recipes by the Bum. Plus full-color vintage graphics and original drink photography; expanded drink history and lore, incorporating newly discovered information about the origins of the Mai Tai and other legendary Tiki mysteries; and a revamped ingredient glossary with new product recommendations.
