This review is from: The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks (Paperback)
Judging by Mr. Embury's prose, he would be a load of fun to sit down and have a drink with. Or better yet, have him do the mixing. This book is entertaining, comprehensive, and clearly written. It tells how to mix drinks, the history of the cocktail, descriptions of various liquors, liquers, mixers; and contains literally hundreds of recipes. Best of all, it shows you a few basic prinicples so you can "roll your own," as the author suggests, and frees you to experiment.
