Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Whether it's with a classic Martini (gin, vermouth and an olive-stirred, not shaken), the five-ingredient International Incident shot, or an intricate tropical fishbowl drink garnished with fruit and umbrellas, Parker offers readers a thousand ways to avoid the perils of sobriety. Organized not by the dominant alcohol in each, but by style, the "Breakfast and Brunch Cocktails" are separated from the "Lounge Lizards' Classic Cocktails" and the "Bahama Mama Tropical Drinks," among others, which could make it difficult for the reader trying to find a drink to build using the random alcoholic odds and ends common to many home bars, but a boon to those who pick up the book before hitting the liquor store. Cocktail purists might take issue with the over 100 virgin drinks included and Parker's use of store-bought mixes, but with the sheer number of recipes (and the variations on each), there are bound to be a drink or ten for everyone.

From Booklist

Modern mixology has invented multiple modes of martinis--so many martinis that to list them all requires a full chapter in this new, exhaustive bartender's guide. The classic martini has given way to a wide diversity of potables whose only common element is alcohol. Parker inventories all these, from the austere gin-and-vermouth originals through the cosmopolitan and on to outrageous martinis that include exotica such as sliced black truffles. Manhattans, margaritas, and mojitos still have their partisans, and Parker gives their recipes plenty of space. A chapter on champagne cocktails offers some festive, fizzy libations. Tropical concoctions call for rums and all sorts of fruit extractions. A section on vintage cocktails recalls drinks from old movies. Parker's nonalcoholic alternatives go beyond the well-known Shirley Temple to a host of fruit juice-based drinks that appeal to both children and adults. The book concludes with some recipes for drinks such as the prairie oyster, reputed to counteract the effects of excess revelry. This is a good contemporary addition for a reference collection.

Format: Paperback
I can't recommend this book at all. While there are a lot of recipes in it, you'd be hard-pressed to find a particular drink you wanted since there is no index of drink names. Although divided into general categories (Tropical Drinks, etc.), within that chapter the drinks are not organized in any logical way (like alphabetically). The index only lists ingredients, mainly types of alcohol, so you could look up "vodka," and then check the 88 pages listed if you were trying to find, say, how to make a Devil's Torch.

I saw this book at the library and had to own it myself. It is a great reference to have. I plan to use it a lot in the future!

I wish there was a better organization or perhaps a reference table that allowed you to find drinks based on what they are made of.

I am a big fan of this bartender 1000 best recipes. It is all encompassing book with drinks for all types of occasions/groups. I like how convenient it is, no more researching ingredients or wondering what to mix with which liquor or alcohol, this book has it all written clearly and in recipe-style. I recommend this for the entertainer, the partyer, and the drinker.

Picked up this book, as it was written by a reporter from my state and I try to support the locals. It's very well done. Much funnier than a regular recipe book. Not your ordinary collection. Hats off, Miss Parker, now I have lots of new drinks to try.
