I received this as a Christmas present from my brother, and since then we've had a great time putting together these concoctions! Layout and photography is outstanding. Love the quality ingredients in the recipes, the interesting combinations, and seasonal organization. My entire family loves this book--pretty sure the Rosemary Maple Bourbon Sour just became a staple for us. If you're into natural, in-season ingredients, refreshing and unique drinks, and a little pretentious hipster-isms, you will love this book!

This book was a critical addition to my bar. Unlike other cocktail recipe books (which might say nothing more than "Add ice and shake"), this book has helpful, user friendly instructions ("Add ice above the level of the liquid and shake vigorously for 10 seconds"). Perfect for anyone just getting into cocktails! The book cover is also a very durable material that stands up well to spills. A delightful book!

I really like this book, I do. It has:

- Very pretty pictures. Beautiful!
- Very simple instructions.
- Drinks for the seasons.
- Interesting ideas (lavender and kale? who knew!)
- Very brief and general guidelines for mixing cocktails.

For a beginner, and for a lovely book to put on your coffee table (or bar), this book by two young men (hipsters...not that there is anything wrong with that) passionate about drinking is just for you. A great gift.

I rated it 3 stars because of a few issues:
- It's not very elaborate. For someone who wants to have a more in-depth lesson on mixing or ingredients, you will not find it here.
- There are several ingredients/drinks that are mentioned that I have no idea what they are. They explain some special ingredients but not many others.

Perhaps I am rating this coffee-table book as I would rate a recipe book, which may be unfair. But those are my thoughts.

Cheers!

I got this book for my boyfriend for Christmas after seeing it in a bookstore months before that. I thought the book was beautiful, with amazing photos and great descriptions. The drinks we have made out of it so far are delicious, and the simple instructions and innovative ingredients really make it a joy to create them.

We had such a great time making these drinks, that we decided to get the mason jar shaker as well!
