Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
very disapointed. The book is fine for begginers, but terrible if you know anything about cocktails. There is literally about 20-25 recipes, more than half of them being extremly simple and basic, and 3-4 of them being respectable creations or twists. Pictures are great, but im not buying a cocktail book for the pictures, am i?. Its not worth it. If you have 30$ to spend on a cocktail book, get something that will give you what you paid for. I dont recommand and i regret buying. I got tricked into buying this book when i red "a new perspective on cocktails". What a disapointment.

Excellent variety of cocktails. Most are easy to make! I really like that there are a set number of different types of alcohol that you need to make all the drinks!!

HASH(0xa2e5921c) out of 5 stars I love matte covers Oct. 29 2014
By Harris2 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Shake: A New Perspective on Cocktails is co-written by Eric Prum and Josh Williams, the co-creators of the mason jar cocktail shaker. They emphasize high-quality ingredients over quantity of ingredients, and none of the cocktails had more than 5 steps to follow.

So many positives to this cocktail recipe book! First, before you even open the book, you feel the lovely matte cover. I love matte covers. I love the minimalist layout of the pages, too. Just look at that beautiful cover!

Shake opens with a few pages talking about bar basics. There are 12 "standard" spirits the guys recommend (that's totally doable) and then they also recommend a few styles of stemware/glassware to have on hand. I ended up trying four different cocktails from the book, and only had to buy one ingredient: rosemary sprigs. That's awesome. The book is subdivided by season, which is fun. I don't want to be anything less than thorough in reviewing my books, so over the course of three weeks I tried one cocktail from each season. ;)

As I mentioned, I liked the short and reasonable ingredients lists. I had fun experimenting and learning new cocktails. And I enjoyed the short vignettes in each chapter where the guys talked about favorite activities. For example, in Spring they talk about attending the horse races and in Winter they share a glance inside their workshop. Beyond practical, this cocktail recipe book is also full of beautiful photographs and interesting info.

HASH(0xa2e59270) out of 5 stars Beautiful and useful June 1 2015
By Katharine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book as a gift for my brother, who has a bar in his home and loves cocktails. Before giving it to him, I browsed through the book.

I was really impressed with the physical presence of the book - the photography is gorgeous, very modern and clean, and the cover, binding, and paper are all fantastic quality. It's a book that exudes polish and sophistication. It would look great on your bookshelf or coffee table and makes for an impressive-looking gift.

I didn't try out the cocktails myself, but every few weeks I get a text or phone call from my brother when he makes a new one. He's loved every single one that he tried, and he's getting a lot of use out of the book. He particularly liked the Mid-Winter Marg and the Blackberry Fence Hoppers.

Some very unique cocktails in this book! I love that they group them by season and also have mocktails for my friends who don't drink. Plus it has some amazing imagery, the theme that is carried throughout the book is gorgeous.

HASH(0xa2e59444) out of 5 stars Google the classics...Buy this book Nov. 17 2015
By JHerk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Outstanding and refreshingly new ideas for cocktails that don't require 15 ingredients you've never heard of. It's beautifully and simply laid out, broken down by season, and fits perfectly to the home mixologist/bartender who wants to make easy, ridiculously good original cocktails for home or to impress your friends. Put this on your coffee table now, but buy it on a Wednesday or Thursday so it arrives BEFORE the weekend. Otherwise you end up drinking a variety of liquors on a Tuesday night...which never ends well.

HASH(0xa2e59630) out of 5 stars Nothing frou-frou, just good stuff. really good stuff July 19 2015
By Marquette Mama - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Bought PB at shop and LOVE LOVE LOVE this book. This is THE Foodie's cocktail book. It is filled with beautiful photography, has an overall calming grounded presence. It is wonderful from every aspect: for looking through, planning and purchasing the next cocktail to make, preparing and enjoying the cocktail made. Nothing frou-frou here. Just good stuff. I think it would make a wonderful gift for those who enjoy the making of cocktails as much as the drinking of them.
