One of the Best Cocktail Books! Oct 14, 2007
I have waited a long while for a really useful amateur barman's instruction manual. This is it, for sure! A guide to the novice and the more jaded that "mixes" simple, accurate, step-by-step instructions for the preparation of all the old favorites and most of the newly fashonable cocktails with extra-dry wit, pertinent historical background and literary flair! A very helpful symbol-system and description of necessary materials for a well-stocked bar is thoughtfully included. A must for the contemporary host/hostess.
