I have been bartending professionally for about 7 years. I happened into a bartending job when a former roommate of mine was moving, and his employer needed a bartender immediately. I knew absolutely nothing about tending bar at the time, but this book gave me the knowledge I needed to get started. I developed my skill as a bartender at that job and have since moved on to much busier establishments. Forget bartending school--this book, along with a more expansive recipe book like Mr. Boston's for the occasional obscure drink request, is all you need.

cuts the fat April 5 2005
By Stan - Published on Amazon.com
All of the info in this book is good. But the best part about this book is the organization of the drink recipe section. It doesn't simply bombard you with a huge alphabetized list of drinks that you'll probably never have to pour. In this book, the drinks are categorized into Basic, Popular and Fun categories, and recommends you memorize the Basic and Popular drinks if you plan on working in a bar. FINALLY, a book that tells you what drinks are really important to know. Books like Mr. Boston, are quite handy on those rare occasions when someone asks for a very obscure drink. But this book really helps you figure out what drinks are essential to know. There's no point in driving yourself crazy trying to memorize 1,000+ drinks when you're probably only going to run into 50 of them with any frequency. I love this book.

This book is fantastic, though the terminology is a little outdated I would say that for the most part this book can transcend time. If you simply read it by the end you will have been taught first in layman terms and then gradually treated like a profession. You will be able to call your liquors and find your way around the most typical bars with ease. Just pick up a cocktail book and start impressing your friends at home or get that dream job of a bartender you always wanted. I have already become certified to mix and serve alcohol in my state and I have a job interview next week at a bar that I heard is looking for people to tend their bar. You will not be disappointed if you read this book!
