Book Description

1 Sep 2012
Once upon a time, ordering a cocktail at a bar was the kind of thing an aging lothario might do to impress a girl. But these days, knowing your Margarita from your Mojito, and your Old-Fashioned from your Tom Collins, is essential knowledge for every modern gent. In The Gentleman's Guide to Cocktails, Alfred Tong will teach you all you need to know about the fine art of mixology. From tools of the trade, to muddling and mixing, schmoozing and shaking, and including secrets from some of the world's best bartenders, you'll be mixing with mojo in no time. Hone your skills with over 100 recipes, ranging from classics like Bloody Marys and Whiskey Sours to modern marvels such as the Flirtini, the Don Draper and Under the Boardwalk. Slick and stylish, dapper and dandy, The Gentleman's Guide to Cocktails will turn you into the man who mixes. Is it worth the time just to get a drink, I hear you ask? Well yes, it does require some effort, but then so does having a suit made, seducing a woman or landing that contract. Doing it properly matters. This book is going to show you how.

Product Description

Review

"As much as you like to drink drinks, when you get behind the bar to mix them, your repertoire is limited to about 3. The Gentleman's Guide To Cocktails contains a whopping 150 recipes for you to work with. After all, if given a choice, your friends will probably drink something besides a vodka soda. " "WERD.com""At first glance, The Gentleman's Guide to Cocktails looks like it could have been left lying around on the set of Mad Men. We can only assume that that was intentional, because the only thing that the people on the set of Mad Men seem to love more than drama, women and cigarettes is booze." " Coolmaterial.com""Sometimes you don't want to drink beer. Read this book and know what to order next time you're craving some whiskey and taking shots is out of the question." T"he College Gentleman""A definitive cataloge of the most suave cocktails...It's the ultimate guide for a cocktail barman. ...This book will turn the wannabe barman into the perfect cocktail party host."" The Fancy"

4.0 out of 5 stars Super speedy, bit bashed 27 Nov 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Could not believe how fast this came, and had all the guys in the office pawing over it as soon as it came in, so no doubt this will go down well.

Have to say didn't look brand new, was a bit bashed with a few white specs where it has been bashed a bit, but all in all doesn't look read and tatty, just like a book from a shop that's not been looked after in transport.
