What a lovely little book this is. well organized, neat sections and subsections. alphabetical and a full glossary and index. I like the minimum amount of photos included, they are just enough to keep me inspired. this book as served me well for the past year. armed with this little book I become the center bartender of all the party. the book also comes full of techniques to substitute and even invent your own drinks. it seems people buy this book thinking its a mail order bartender, or a step by step photo how to book. that is not what it is. its a small comprehensive heartrending recipe book. all in all a 5/5 and a must have in everyone's liquor cabinet.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best Feb. 21 2013

This is the traditional bartender's guide and is still the best for traditional drinks and cocktails. Further, studying the recipes in the Mr. Boston guide will give the neophyte a better idea of which potions work well together to create the finest concoctions. Thsi should be behind every bar.

5.0 out of 5 stars The cocktail hour Jan. 9 2012
By wogan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is an improved Mr. Boston Bartenders Guide. It is the usual, small, red hardbound copy the fits on, in or near the bar, but yet the print is large enough to see.
It has an interesting introduction, telling about Leo Cotton, the `father' of the guide and also about the present state of cocktail consumption. There are about 150 new recipes, none using premixes. Some ways to make various syrups are included, attempting to make the cocktails more natural and flavorful. This is an enhancement, especially for cocktail connoisseurs.

The book is really a complete guide to making good cocktails and how you can have extensive bartending techniques. Tips are included on how to be a professional/good bartender. Equipment lists and glassware with tiny silhouettes are listed, also what the well-stocked bar should have; mixing, chilling, and serving as well as charts giving measures are incorporated in the pages.
Instructions to make classic cocktails, with some information about each, then drinks made with: brandy, rum, tequila, vodka, whiskies, cordials and liqueurs, shooters, frozen drinks, hot, eggnogs and punches, wine and beer in mixed drinks and nonalcoholic drinks are all described. It would be a pretty obscure drink, not to be recorded here.
Resources with web sites, a glossary and an index complete the multitude of information included in this compact book.

4.0 out of 5 stars It ain't your Grandfathers Mr Boston Jan. 18 2014
By Mud Man - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have a 61st ed, from 1981, which is a much thinner version. In the older edition, all the recipes are organized alphabetically by title. A cross-reference in the back ties liquor to drink. Quite frankly, many of the formulas in the old one were different only by the ratios of ingredients. This version has many updated formulations. It organizes the drinks by liquors, with handy colored thumb tabs to identify each section. Drink variants are now listed together, with a wider range of ingredients, and a short description of their sources. It also has many color pictures of the drinks. This newer version is more useful and provides more resource for the budding mixologist.

3.0 out of 5 stars An old classic April 16 2014
By Susan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
What can I say but this is a classic in all respects. I purchased it to replace a 70 year old leather bound edition that has been handed down in the family, I just passed the old one on to a son. This is a paperback version and lists all the old time classic drinks. It doesn't compare well in my opinion to other nwer style guides that feature extensive photography of all the drinks. But if you are looking for a current version of the classic pocket bartenders guide then get one for sure if for nothing else but nostalgia.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this guide! June 20 2013
By La-Tessa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I met Mr. Pogash in NY a couple of years back at a cocktail presentation he did at writer's conference. I ordered this as soon as I got home and was not disappointed. I love the way it's organized by spirit, so I can just flip to the section I need if I am making gin based cocktails, vodka based cocktails, etc. It's also a very handsome book, which makes it easy to keep on display. This is such a staple for me, that it has its own spot on my bar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best source for classics, kindle version handy May 15 2013
By MaryBeth Dawson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had a recent discussion with a friend, about the Mai Tai. We decided to whip up a batch of the original mixture, but had to wade through many shortcut recipes containing mixes or juices. I remembered that I used to have one of of these little red Mr. Boston books, as did my Dad, and just knew it would contain the information we needed. Unfortunately, we were not near home, and managed to dig up the earliest original version, and assembled our ingredients. They turned out to be delicious, and when I decided later to check my Mr Boston guide, I could not find it on my shelf. I decided it would be handier on my kindle anyway, and bought that version. When I looked up the Mai Tai, it had the whole drink story, with the original ingredients, and a non brand specific version that would not require interpretation today (simple syrup instead of rock candy syrup, general description of best type of rum to use). Certainly trendy guides can have their place, but this is a great basic reference.
