Format: Paperback
If you appreciate sipping a well made cocktail - you should appreciate this fantastic collection of recipes, stories, and home bar tending advice. Easily replicated recipes that produce amazing results are reason enough to buy this book, but I also enjoyed the history lessons detailing the demise (and subsequent revival) of the classic cocktail (I am glad to be past the days of frozen mixers and yellow tequila!). Is it wrong that I am craving an old fashioned at this hour...?

Great photography by the author himself. Delicious cocktails, clearly the result of exhaustive, but fun research. Well written recipes for simple classics to sophisticated new techniques. Great glossary and list of bar tool must haves. A wonderful gift for many people on your holiday list! Excuse me now, it's Friday and I have to go make a "Carmen's Veranda"!

Aftering watching the Hearty Boys on Food Network and having their first cookbook, I knew this book would hit a home run and I was right. Love the receipes, photos and snack ideas, it was money well spent. If you like to entertain, this is the book for you.

This book is a comprehensive explanation of the ingredients, methods, and combinations that make up the classic cocktails, as well as a good background into how to apply these things to new drinks. When you are finished, you will be aware of what makes the classics great, as well as know at least two fundamental errors of James Bond's signature drink.

Well written, engaging style. You can tell the author knows his stuff. I was looking for a good generic reference to add to my collection and this was a good one. He explains all the intricacies of bar materials and products very well. Worth the read if you want to get into bartending either professionally or as a hobby.

I was a bartender many years ago and recently have had the mixology itch. Funny, I'm not a big drinker. I actually just enjoy making a good drink no mater if it's for me or someone else. I was just going to purchase a Mr. Boston recipe book but on the recommendation of Derrick Schommer (check him out on you tube) I went with this instead. It was in my amazon "for you" list anyway so I didn't have to look very hard. Very pleased I did. A very respectable amount of classic drinks represented in a way that it's not so intimidating to try your hand at them. There is plenty of extras that will enhance your next party or self indulgence as well. You don't need to go out and spend a lot, stay home and master you favorite cocktail and hey maybe impress your friends, with this as your secret weapon you could be the toast of the town.
