"Drink & Tell is an excellent tour of Boston's cocktail world, and a fine look at local dedication to quality and innovation. Some of the best bartenders in the country are working in Boston, and they deserve a wider spotlight. Cheers to Yarm for providing it." - SeriousEats
"Drink & Tell is not a big, glossy, coffee table cocktail book. It doesn't have to be. What Fred Yarm has done... is assemble a personal modern history of drinks around Boston. Basically, he has used his years of research... and given it to us in one concise reference." - BostonGlobe"
Compiling more than 500 recipes from some 40 bars throughout the city, the book is a great tool for the home bartender looking to branch out." - Metro
It's an excellent cocktail book... there are plenty of "basic" or "classic" cocktail books out there, but Drink & Tell
goes a different direction and features new or evolutionary cocktails from bartenders all over Boston. What you get is 500 recipes that expand your repertoire and offer inspiration. If you feel like 'you've tried them all,' Drink & Tell
will suggest otherwise." - PutneyFarms
