Jeff “Beachbum” Berry Gets Interviewed

Jeff Berry, the leader of a worldwide cult of Tiki, has a new book coming out. Beachbum Berry Remixed is his latest effort to bring the best of Tiki to the masses. The book contains more than 240 drink recipes – some classics, some new creations by today’s best barfolk – along with classic artwork and original drink photography.

Using all of my incredible connections in the industry, along with not-so-veiled threats to start encouraging people to make Mai Tais with Amaretto and orange juice, I was able to secure a little bit of Jeff’s time and ask him about his book, his history and which Zombie recipe is the best.

Jeff “Beachbum” Berry Gets Remixed

I think Jeff personally revived the tiki cocktail, at first single-handedly and then with a growing pack of acolytes behind him.

I’ve mentioned Jeff Berry numerous times here on RumDood.com. It’s hard not to. Actually, let me rephrase that: it’s impossible not to.

Jeff “Beachbum” Berry may be the closest person we have to a living Tiki God today

As we come to the end of Jeff “Beachbum” Berry Week it just so happens that we are not only celebrating the any-day-now arrival of Jeff’s newest book, Beachbum Berry Remixed, but also the Bum’s own birthday!
There are so many great drinks to actually choose from.  The Miehana, the Coconaut, the Bum’s Rush, the Kiliki Cooler…

Coconaut

It’s not often that you’ll see me recommending a drink that calls for a blender. I have several friends that are trying to break me of my resistance as there are actually quite a few awesome Tiki drinks that employ this device’s dark powers of crush and/or puree. Drinks like this one only help their cause.

The Coconaut is another Jeff Berry creation, originally given to the world via his book, Beachbum Berry’s Grog Log. A mixture of coconut cream, rum, lime juice and a blender full of ice, it’s an utterly amazing drink that can pack quite a wallop.

The Ancient Mariner

Are you tired of Tiki drinks yet?  I sure hope not because we’re still rolling with Jeff “Beachbum” Berry Week as we prepare ourselves for the arrival of Jeff’s newest book, Beachbum Berry Remixed.
Jeff, of course, is considered the man at the front of the Tiki Revival that we’re seeing today.  Beyond reviving long-lost recipes and repopularizing drinks that had fallen out of favor Jeff has also introduced a few drinks of his own, ranging from the blatantly Polynesian to the more subtle tropical drinks like the Ancient Mariner.

Missionary’s Downfall

Something that’s best described as refreshing, herbal, and delicious? Now that sounds like a drink I could get behind. Throw in one of the greatest cocktail names ever and how could anyone resist the siren call of a Downfall? The Missionary’s Downfall first appeared in Don The Beachcomber’s back in 1940s, though Jeff “Beachbum” Berry [...]

Mai Tai Madness: The Winners!

Last month I had a crazy idea. What if I held a contest to get people to write about their best rum experiences and then picked the best one and had someone send them a bunch of booze? That dream has become a reality.  After a few weeks of collecting entries, we finally have a [...]
