This book is pretty much all you'll ever need! Plastic binding makes it very easy to leave open to follow recipes! Drinks divided into catagories, in addition to being alphabetized. I really like this book - better than any other bartender guides I've purchased!
Handy guide with 1000s of drinks spelled out clearly. The stay open binder makes reference the book quick. The laminated pages helps with spills. A must buy for any home bar.
Got a copy of this for myself and for my friend who used to be a bartender. His response was "Every bar i've ever worked at had one of these under the counter!" rated 4 stars since it uses specific measurements instead of ratios for the recipes. Still an excellent reference for beginners and veterans alike.
I completed my home bar and this book is loaded with awesome information. My favorite is the drink lists which are organized by name or main ingredient (Vodka, Gin, etc...). So if you know the name of your favorite drink, then its in there, but If you can't remember but know it had Rum in it, then you can easily find that too.
Spiral bound so you can lay it flat while you're reading out of it. Ton's of drinks and shots. It's not complete by any means but it does have a ton of stuff. There's no way to write a complete because so many drink are made up on the spot in different regions and given ridiculous names. It does have all the classics and a ton of drinks you've never heard of. One of my favorites was the Long Sloe Comfortable Screw Against the Wall with Satin Pillows.
Fun and informative little book packed with drinks, and even the different ways a drink of the same name can be made (for example, I never knew there were three different variations of the drink called "Skinny B**ch". An extensive section covers wines also, and how to properly serve and taste them, which I had very little knowledge about but now feel comfortable with thanks to this book. This will be a go-to reference for me for years to come!
Wasn't as good as earlier editions. Print small & pages weren't laminated as previous books making them easily stained & can rip easily after use behind a bar or party setting. I may order the older books due to that. Drink info is numerous & has very good variety.
This book has been with me through 10 years of bartending. I keep buying it because it is the most easily comprehensible book out there. I really love the way the author explains the drinks and all the aspects of the bar. I also like that the recipes don't call for a specific type of brand (like Malibu, instead it'll say coconut rum)I also love that it has a part to explain where wines come from and a section for dessert drinks. Explains all types of bar things. Even has a few jokes.I can't say how many times this book has saved me. If you're looking for the best bar book, in my opinion this is it.
