What I really dislike about the book though is that it's not well organized in my opinion - the recipes are simply arrange alphabetically by name, which is to say, in an entirely random and arbitrary way. You can't easily say "I want to make something with gin" and easily pick something out from this book, and there's absolutely no index to help you either.
Do try to get past that, though. The attention to detail in the craft cocktail recipes herein is incredible, and the illustrations are nothing short of beautiful works of art. Aside from how it's organized, the thing I've been looking for and can't find – and was hoping to find here – was more on the art of mixology itself. I was hoping for more of the art and science behind their creations, but I have to say, this is among the best cocktail recipe books I've ever seen.
In short, it has a place on my cocktail shelf, but I don't find it indispensable.
It's great that the brand names of spirits used is listed in the recipies. Also, there are instructions for how to make all the syrups and infusions, which is great.
