This book is a must for all professional bartenders, home bar novices or those of us who simply prefer to drink the stuff!
Not only does it offer a step by step guide on how to make hundreds of the worlds best cocktails but also gives a valuable insight into the history of cocktails and drinks and also gives some interesting and funny stories from Dales many years behind the bar.
Possibly the best cocktail book ever written by probably the worlds greatest living mixologist.

This book was recommended to me while I was in a cocktail bar in London - it is easily the best cocktail book I have read! Not only does it contain hundreds of recipes and serving instructions, it explores the history of ingredients like the differnce between Bourbon, Rye, Irish and Tennessee whiskey; recommending the best ones to use for which cocktail.
Written by the man who made the 'Cosmopolitan' famous, I found this a great read - and so did all my family at Christmas!

Hmmm, I think maybe I was expecting too much from this. I wanted a one stop shop for all the classics and a few 'new wave' tipples as well. But on top of that I wanted a big bold coffee table type book full of wonderful pictures of drinks, equipment and venues. Instead I got a very '80s looking text book. As informative as it is it will not be making my 'most read list'.
Overall a good solid reference book that will serve you well but if you're looking for a visual feast look elsewhere.
