"James Bond Drinks" is well laid out with sections on spirits, cocktails, wine and beer as well as a section on equipment and glassware. It is not so much a bar tending guide as it is a history of 007 and his beverage preferences in book or on the big screen. Through the book, the author provides the book and movie references including quotes for each drink as well as a history of the drink in the real world. While I am not a huge 007 fan, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and learned much about the history of cocktails, wine and champagne producers and brewers throughout the world. The author has a style that is down-to-earth and easy to follow while educating the reader.
On top of all that the book has to offer, there are several references for additional background on all things James Bond, mixology or both together.
Its what I hoped this book would be like. Instead we get more of a guide to the types of drinks and alcohol that Bond has instead of a true guide to the instances and scenes where he drinks. Don't get me wrong, this is a very handy guide, but I wish it went further, like the aforementioned site.
I've seen 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service' 20 times, but never noticed Bond drinking Enzian or ordering a 'double Steinhager'. So this book adds to the movies that I thought I knew everything about. The paperback version of this book now sells upwards to $268 on amazon, so I got the kindle. Nice to have it handy on my Ipad gadget from Q.
