Editorial Reviews

Review

"As much as you like to drink drinks, when you get behind the bar to mix them, your repertoire is limited to about 3. The Gentleman’s Guide To Cocktails contains a whopping 150 recipes for you to work with. After all, if given a choice, your friends will probably drink something besides a vodka soda. " ~WERD.com

"At first glance, The Gentleman’s Guide to Cocktails looks like it could have been left lying around on the set of Mad Men. We can only assume that that was intentional, because the only thing that the people on the set of Mad Men seem to love more than drama, women and cigarettes is booze." ~Coolmaterial.com

"Sometimes you don't want to drink beer. Read this book and know what to order next time you're craving some whiskey and taking shots is out of the question." ~The College Gentleman

"A definitive cataloge of the most suave cocktails...It's the ultimate guide for a cocktail barman. ...This book will turn the wannabe barman into the perfect cocktail party host." ~The Fancy

After finally starting to watch Mad Men, I know I'm a little late to the cocktail party, my friend bought this guide for me. It is eloquent, to the point but not blunt. The illustrations are classic 60's style, I almost want to cut them out and mount them on a mat board, frame them, and hang them around the apartment. The cocktail recipes are almost exactly to my liking and instructions are very easy to follow. My only qualm is that I don't care too much for maraschino cherries, I prefer the real thing, but that's really no big deal. Overall a great buy for a fan of Mad Men, for a guy who likes a properly fitted suit, or appreciates a finely mixed cocktail - like the Old Fashioned I'm currently enjoying as I write my first Amazon review.

First off, this is a very entertaining book to flip through. I bought it as a stocking stuffer for my husband and we had fun reading through it. That said, we haven't tried any of the drinks in it at this time so I can't really rate it on the recipes. There is a vast assortment of cocktails to try with a lot of fun comments and reading intermixed. The book arrived with some bent pages because of the way it was packaged from Amazon, otherwise very happy with this purchase.
