Ultimate Bar Book is the first and only guide to classic and new drink recipes. Loaded with essential-to-know topics such as barware, tools, and mixing tips, this book has it all. As a mistress of mixology, the author has the classics down to a Tthe Martini, the Bloody Mary, plus the many variations (the Dirty Martini, the Virgin Mary). And then there are all the creative new elixirs the author brings to the table, like the Tasmanian Twister Cocktail or the Citron Sparkler. Illustrations show precisely what type of glass should be used for each drink. With dozens of recipes for garnishes, rims, infusions, and syrups; punches, gelatin shooters, hot drinks, and non-alcoholic beverages; andlet's not forgetan essential selection of hangover remedies, Ultimate Bar Book is nothing short of top-shelf.

  • Great Gift

    I bought 3 of these books to use as hostess gifts. They make a great gift especially when added to a basket with the ingredients of one of the recipes within. If you wanted to jazz up a gift even more, add some neat cocktail glasses, napkins, and bar utensils --- from O.Co, of course.

  • Very comprehensive, but no pictures...

    This is a very nice-looking hardback book. And there are plenty of different cocktail recipes in it. The only thing I'm disappointed with is that there are no pictures of the completed cocktails for reference. At least it does tell you which glass you should use, so I guess if you follow each direction step-by-step you will end up with the correct-looking drink, but it would still be helpful to have a picture as a guide as well. I would still recommend this book since it does cover such a vast array of drinks, but go into it knowing that you're going to have to look up online what your cocktail is supposed to look like in the end.
