    5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT all-round cocktail guide for bar tenders! Aug. 3 2000
    Format:Paperback
    As a bar tender, I found this book an excellent resource in my line of work. I do live in Australia and although some of the metric conversions might be difficult for the average home buyer of this book, most people who work in this industry know what an Oz is and can follow the measuring units easily. Great layout, with easy to follow steps and illustrations. Also a GREAT selection of non-alcoholic drinks (the most I've seen) to satisfy the non-drinkers out there. An excellent size, so it is handy if you do plan to use this in a bar to store under the counter. Good value book for the busy bar tenders out there, or for the home user who likes to impress friends.

    5.0 out of 5 stars The best compilation I've seen yet. Jan. 20 2002
    By hairpin
    Format:Paperback
    This was my first cocktail book I ever bought, and it's still my favorite. Anthony Dias Blue goes into detail about bar setup, the do's and don'ts of making drinks, and even the history of the different alcohols and liqueurs. My favorite sections are the signature drink sections, where famous bars have their well-known drinks described in detail. There is a large portion of non-alcoholic drinks to boot.
    I recommend this book to everyone, and even may buy myself a new one, as my current copy is water-stained. :D

    5.0 out of 5 stars a unique guide organized by spirit type. Nov. 29 2001
    Format:Paperback
    this book is unique among bartending/mixed drink books because it's organized by type of spirit. in other words, if you have tequila in the liquor cabinet and nothing else, you can go to the section marked "tequila" and see what mixed drinks are available to you. it also includes an informative and interesting introduction to each spirit explaining it's history, distillation, and other tidbits. this is my favorite guide i've come across.

    5.0 out of 5 stars outstanding Oct. 10 2011
    By Kitchen king - Published on Amazon.com
    This is the best book on this subject I have read or owned. It is thorough, well organized and surprisingly entertaining. A good read, with interesting history of different spirits, origins of cocktails, etc. My only criticism, and it is a not a major one, is that I would have liked more liqueurs listed in that section; could not find Drambuie, Sabra, or B&B, but he covers most of the best known ones. There is an excellent index that allows you to easily look up individual drinks. I own several bartender guides and this is by far the best one I have.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Would definitely recommend! June 12 2008
    By K. Handley - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    This was my first drink-mixing book that I bought and I am happy I did! I love the layout of the book! You can search recipes by what alcohol you have laying around or you can search by type of drink. I love that it tells you the history of the liquors, terms, what glasses to use for what etc. It really is handy for a first-time drink maker! The only thing I wish it would have are drink illustrations/pictures, but that's just my taste! Thank you!
