Format: Hardcover
This is an improved Mr. Boston Bartenders Guide. It is the usual, small, red hardbound copy the fits on, in or near the bar, but yet the print is large enough to see.
It has an interesting introduction, telling about Leo Cotton, the `father' of the guide and also about the present state of cocktail consumption. There are about 150 new recipes, none using premixes. Some ways to make various syrups are included, attempting to make the cocktails more natural and flavorful. This is an enhancement, especially for cocktail connoisseurs.

The book is really a complete guide to making good cocktails and how you can have extensive bartending techniques. Tips are included on how to be a professional/good bartender. Equipment lists and glassware with tiny silhouettes are listed, also what the well-stocked bar should have; mixing, chilling, and serving as well as charts giving measures are incorporated in the pages.
Instructions to make classic cocktails, with some information about each, then drinks made with: brandy, rum, tequila, vodka, whiskies, cordials and liqueurs, shooters, frozen drinks, hot, eggnogs and punches, wine and beer in mixed drinks and nonalcoholic drinks are all described. It would be a pretty obscure drink, not to be recorded here.
Resources with web sites, a glossary and an index complete the multitude of information included in this compact book.

I met Mr. Pogash in NY a couple of years back at a cocktail presentation he did at writer's conference. I ordered this as soon as I got home and was not disappointed. I love the way it's organized by spirit, so I can just flip to the section I need if I am making gin based cocktails, vodka based cocktails, etc. It's also a very handsome book, which makes it easy to keep on display. This is such a staple for me, that it has its own spot on my bar.

This book is really all you need. It doesn't bother with telling you how to make things like a "vegas mega hammer ugg boot bomb" because those are not drinks Mr Boston would serve, and nor should you.

Great little reference guide filled with all the classic/standard drink recipes, and some great information to go along with different drinks and different alcohols. I will be using this for years.

Great organization, nice tips, and yes, it has an index! The pictures aren't entirely necessary, but it does give some hint into the art of mixology.
