It's odd that she claims to draw on and respect the history of the cocktails contained, that she positions herself as a cocktail purist, and yet her recipes are almost unfailingly modern twistings of the originals.
The worst is her martini recipe: 5 drops of vermouth! That's not a martini, it's chilled gin.
