Product Description

Product Description

It’s a system, a tool kit, a recipe book. Beginning with one irresistible idea--a complete home bar of just 12 key bottles--here’s how to make more than 200 classic and unique mixed drinks, including sours, slings, toddies, and highballs, plus the perfect Martini, the perfect Manhattan, and the perfect Mint Julep.

It’s a surprising guide--tequila didn’t make the cut, and neither did bourbon, but genever did. And it’s a literate guide--describing with great liveliness everything from the importance of vermouth and bitters (the “salt and pepper” of mixology) to the story of a punch bowl so big it was stirred by a boy in a rowboat.

5.0 out of 5 stars A HOME Bartenders Guide to Making Cocktails like a Pro 29 July 2014
By Toni Marie Perrera - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
At last, a book for the HOME Bartender! This is an excellent resource if you enjoy making cocktails at home and being your own host.

The 12 Bottles include 8 Liquors, 2 Vermouths and 2 Bitters and covers drinks with 1 Bottle (Pick Your Poision), 3 Bottles (Adding Bitters & Vermouth) and 4 Bottles (Orange Liqueur). Ice (otherwise known as Cocktail Ice) gets it's own several page section and is well worth the read. My favorite section is The Bottles. Everything you could possible want to know about each of the 12 is listed in its own section with complimentary recipes! It'll give you a new appreciation for each of them.

The books ends with Putting It All Together which includes some expanded, new virgin drinks instead of the typical ones you tend to find in bartender guides and drink books. No Shirley Temple in this one! Beer, Wine & Cider has found a place among this section as well as finishing off with Garnishs, Syrups and Liqueurs which includes a wonderful Cherry Syrup recipe.

By jonathan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is the best book I've come across for people who want a good drink at home. For people who like a cocktail. For people who like food and don't make cocktails because so many home attempts are terrible (and so many restaurants/bars are about as bad). It's terrific for entertaining, from a few friends to a lot, but it's really helpful for anyone who wants to enjoy a good drink.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun! Creativity at the bar 1 Aug 2014
By marci gabriel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Fun! Creativity at the bar? Artistry in drinks? History and style? YES. And for me, not a fancy hostess... it's simple, and I look like I finally know what I'm doing- and with elegance and style! Thousands of ideas, great information and well done. Great hostess gift, wedding gift or gift to self! Entertaining read. Who knew so much inspiration could mount from 12 simple bottles at my bar. Thank you!
