Beachbum Berry Remixed!
The best book for the burgeoning tropical drinks buff!
From Beachbum Berry's site:
The global Tiki Drink revival is in full swing. But without Beachbum Berry’s Grog Log (1998) and Intoxica! (2002), there’d be nothing to drink. 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’s spilling it all in Beachbum Berry Remixed, a completely revised and updated anthology of Grog Log and Intoxica! This 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 Featuring 107 additional recipes: 41 newly discovered, previously unpublished vintage Tiki drink recipes; 43 of the best new recipes from today’s Tiki revival, gathered especially for Remixed from the world’s top mixologists and cocktail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.

“Like an imbiber’s Indiana Jones on the trail of ancient tropical cocktails, Jeff ‘Beachbum’ Berry is the raider of a lost art.” — Noah Bonaparte Pais, GAMBIT WEEKLY
