Beachbum Berry’s Grog Log

Jeff Berry and Annene Kaye

“When Polynesian restaurants started disappearing 20 years ago, so did their tropical drink recipes. Although these drinks were enormously popular from the 1930s right through the ‘70s—an unprecedented lifespan for a drink fad—today’s bar guides can only tell you how to make pale—and sweet and syrupy—imitations of the originals.
“But after two years of research and experimentation, authors Berry and Kaye have gathered 37 of the best drink recipes from the golden age of Polynesian Pop. The Grog Log contains vintage ‘lost’ recipes by Don the Beachcomber, Trader Vic and others; several original creations; and some reinterpretations of old classics. Profusely illustrated with vintage black-and-white tiki menu graphics from the ‘50s and ‘60s, with an introduction that covers everything you need to know to become your own mixologist.”
