More About the Author

Jim Meehan, author of the The PDT Cocktail Book, entered the hospitality business in 1995 while studying at the University of Wisconsin at Madison. He worked his way through school as a bartender, then moved to New York City in 2002 to hone his palate and develop his craft in venues such as Five Points, Pace, Gramercy Tavern and the Pegu Club.

In 2007 Meehan opened PDT, a hidden cocktail lounge attached to a legendary hot dog stand in the East Village. In 2009, he and the bar were recognized with Spirited Awards for American Bartender of the Year and World's Best Cocktail Bar at Tales of the Cocktail. The bar has received the first ever Outstanding Bar Program Award from the James Beard Foundation in 2012. Jim's cocktails are served at American Express Centurion airport lounges at LaGuardia in New York City, DFW in Dallas, San Francisco International, and McCarran in Las Vegas.

In addition to his work behind bars, Meehan edited eight editions of Food & Wine Magazine's annual cocktail book and currently serves as Drinks Editor for TastingTable.com. His work's been featured in magazines, newspapers, books, aps, television, the radio, and a feature length movie. He and his family reside in Portland, Oregon, where he operates his consulting firm Mixography Inc.

Format: Paperback
This book is great for those looking to expand their repetoire broader than gin and tonics and margaritas. one major fault with this edition (2008; i don't know how other year's editions are set up) is that there is no proper index in the back. sure, the book is divided up by major liquor sections (i.e. gin, tequila, vodka, etc) BUT! if you pick up a bottle of, say, st. germaine elderflower liquor, and you want to know all the different drinks you can make with it, you're out of luck, unless you want to page through the entire book to find which recipes use st germaine.

Format: Paperback
This is a great resource for trendy, often exotic, cocktail recipes.

So far I've whipped up the "Au Provence" and "Hibiscus Petal," and both met expectations (which were high). I especially love the use of exotic and unusual herbs and such: thai basil, fresh tarragon, dried hibiscus flowers. Very inventive.

Also includes recipes for some classic cocktails, a section on appetizers ("Bar Food") and other useful info.

Very happy with this collection.

Format: Paperback
I love this series, but this year's edition had many complex drinks with obscure ingredients... Nonetheless it's worth having - this one has "the basics" so it's a good reference, and the recipes for bar snacks look great. I recommend 2005, 2006 and 2007.
