5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning book, 6 Mar 2014

World's Best Cocktails: 500 Couture Cocktails from&hellip by Tom Sandham
4.0 out of 5 stars Great book, 14 Feb 2014
This is a great book, it's enormous and full of what seems like 1000s of recipes. Some very unique ones and some very unusual as well as variations on all the classics. It's quite overwhelming deciding what to make so best to take your time. I love getting it out when I have guests over for a dinner party then we make each other cocktails.

Beautifully presented book which comes in its own box. So far have made the chocolate salami which was really easy and delicious. Can't wait to make more as I'm an avid baker and have just started getting into chocolate.
