What is the Grogalizer?
The Grogalizer is your key to unlocking the power of various tropical Tiki drink recipe books. How many times have you thumbed through a book by Martin Cate or Jeff "Beachbum" Berry looking for a drink you can make with what is in your bar? Wondered if a recipe is good? Looked for something you never made before? Let The Grogalizer figure all that out for you!
Enter your ingredients on hand and see what you can make. Grade the drinks you try and track your progress through the books. See other people's notes on the recipes to get tips for better cocktails. Grade the recipe to help you and others decide what to make next time.
The Grogalizer is a time saver and a luau party planner.
Most of the recipes from the books are not on the Grogalizer site, only page numbers for the recipes. We encourage you to support the authors who have worked hard to bring you these classics. Some recipes from the public and other sources not in books are on the site with the permission of the sources.
Also included in the recipes are the Tiki Central Drink Contest winners, Basement Kahuna's secret recipes and other treasures. You'll also find resources for buying hard to find ingredients.
This is the Tiki Bar's best friend, and the Tiki barman (or woman)!
The essential Tiki bar consists of just these rums, with which you can make most anything on the site:
- White Rum: Cruzan Aged Light; Flor de Cana 4 Extra Seco
- Gold Rum: Cruzan Aged Dark; Flor de Cana 4 or 5 Anejo
- Dark Rum: Myers's Dark; Coruba Dark; Appleton various styles
- 151 Demerara Rum: Hamilton 151; Lemon Hart 151
- Demerara Mid Proof Rum: Hamilton 86; El Dorado 8 or 12 Year
- Martinique/Agricole Rum: Rhum JM; Clement VSOP; Denizen Merchants Reserve
With these you can make decent versions of the cocktails, and as you develop a deeper palate and rum cabinet, you can upgrade your drinks with better rums and those specifically called for in recipes.
