I ordered this book soon after embarking on a project to photograph a beverage a day for 365 days. Among my growing collection of bar books, this is one I will continue to refer to.It is useful if for a novice if not ideal, covering what mixers, garnishes and equipment are needed to stock a bar. Each recipe tells what kind of glass and garnishes to use, but I had to ask a friend what "cracked ice" is. He said whack it with a spoon.The three indexes are especially helpful. They cover "Drinks by Name," "Drinks by Primary Alcoholic Ingredient," and "Drinks by Color/Flavoring." Today I have freshly squeezed orange juice. The third index offers 6 orange juice choices, though surprisingly not Tequila Sunrise, which does appear in the first two indexes. Still, the book is small enough for browsing.As a genuine novice (who else doesn't know what cracked ice is?), I need more help with the presentation of beverages than I get from this book. The well-worded instructions are no match for a good photo. Even though there is 4-color process printing on every page, there are no photos. The 9 drawings of glassware in the first chapter are crude but adequate.As a career printer with a special interest in binding, I was intrigued by this beautifully crafted book. A slight swatch of the striped end papers is reproduced on the edge of every page and is carried through on the cover as well. The concealed wire-o binding, rounded corners and built-in elastic bookmark are all signs of a small publisher who loves the business of designing and crafting a book. The result is a small volume that is a delight to hold and an ideal gift.I visited the website of the publisher, Peter Pauper Press, and it turns out they have dozens of different books in this format.
