4.0 out of 5 stars Very good but short of excellent January 1, 2011
Let me start by saying that this book was very helpful. It could, and should, have been better. My preference would have have been to include a little more text. The book is recipe heavy (the banner does say "Includes 1,000 Recipes!" after all), but I would have liked more explanatory text as to the differences between the different styles of alcohols. They list the ales, but nothing about what they taste like. List the three types of rums but don't mention 151 or spiced rum, but they are used in recipes. There are about 35 pages at the beginning and two or three pages at the beginning of each chapter. I would have liked about 50% more.

Another annoyance is the treatment of liqueurs. Pages 86 and 88 mention the flavors of various liqueurs, but it's in paragraph rather than table form. And many are missing. Adding to the confusion, many recipes call for a liqueur by type and others by brand. I make cosmos with triple sec and the book says to use Cointreau. I understand Cointreau is a brand of triple sec, but the book should have demystified this. A table of all liqueurs and brands, with appropriate substitutions would have been very helpful.

My biggest pet peeve stems from page xii, "Top 10 Things Bartenders Should Know". Number 7, "You don't have to memorize hundreds of recipes to be a bartender. There are only about fifty recipes to know and all the rest are spinoffs from those." Very true and a very good point, but if they wanted to push that agenda they should have grouped the variations together. Case in point, the Cosmopolitan. There are 146 vodka recipes listed, but 24 are different versions of the Cosmo, alphabetized by flavor. And in almost all cases, the only difference is the flavor of the vodka.

2.0 out of 5 stars Try the Bartender's Bible instead November 19, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought this and the Bar Tender's Bible as I'm learning to be a bartender. Index is not good so it is hard to find drinks, e.g. Manhattan is not listed. Unless you know that a Manhattan is made (mostly) from bourbon you won't find it which, surely, is the point of this reference book--to find drinks easily so you can make them. I found the Bartender's Bible--which has a much better index--e.g. it has Manhattan listed, crossed referenced, you've guessed it, with bourbon--much more useful.
