First Sentence
The cocktail was born in the U.S. Precisely when and where remains a mystery, and while its roots run deep in the wine-and spirit-loving cultures of Europe, there is no doubt the cocktail is essentially an American phenomenon. Read the first page

By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
As a beginner to mixing drinks, I found this book a disappointment. For instance, you will find no guidance on how to make a twisted lemon or orange peel. This book will also emphasize premium brands over more economical substitutes. For instance, this book calls for Cointreau in a Cosmopolitan, whereas The Complete Bartender calls for Triple Sec, which can be a much cheaper alternative.
The physical layout of the book is poor, it is thick and does not stay open easily; the typeface is small. It does have "bartender's secrets" providing tips on such topics as precise pouring, but these tips are scattered randomly throughout the book without any index.
Buy this book if you are interested in what appears to be rare cocktail recipes. It also has a two or three page history on each major alcohol, which is interesting. However, I ended up buying The Complete Bartender, which I far prefer (the typeface is very readable and the recipes far more reasonable but still varied enough to be interesting).

as a seasoned bartender I found this book to be a very complete and well organized guide to the world of bartending. although a complete beginner to the world of bartending will find it a bit ovet the top , I highly recomend this book to every working or home bartender looking to improve his craftmanship.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
Although the title makes it seem as though this book is for professional bartenders, you don't have to work behind a bar to find this book helpful. In fact, it's easy-to-use format is terrific for we regular folks who love to entertain. Colorful, lively, ultimately useful, this is a fine book.
