5.0 out of 5 stars This book lives up to its title
An excellent book.
This book is a great read, and has a great format. For the drink recipes, it introduces the cocktail, describes its history, nuances about its construction, or interesting stories related to how it is made, then it provides a variety of different recipes and variations on how to make it.
It is refreshing to see such a creative, and...

1.0 out of 5 stars Dirty and Marked Second Hand Copy with Late Delivery
Had ordered a New copy and instead received a dirty, scratched copy with black marker lines on the side along with it being delivered late. The book even has a Price Tag on the back saying "Used" and for a lot, lot less than what I was actually charged for it. Very, very bad customer service on so many levels.

It is refreshing to see such a creative, and informational book on mixology. I've grown bored of the cocktail books that simply list recipes, without any background or even details about how to add that special "Quality" to the drink that makes them stand out.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best all-round bar guide out there..., 16 July 2003

If you're feed up with those "1000000 cocktail" books then this is the perfect cure. Instead of simply listing the recipes the authors have added a little background and intrigue which makes this a far more interesting publication.
This book also covers other aspects of the barpersons trade and as such is of much more use to the proffesional than most other guides. This really is what it proclaims to be "The World's Best.."

5.0 out of 5 stars "The World's Best Bartenders' Guide" lives up to its name., 7 Oct. 1998

This review is from: The World's Best Bartender's Guide: Professional Bartenders from the World's Greatest Bars Teach You How to Mix the Perfect Drink (Paperback)
Anything with the pluck to call itself "the best" has to stir up your suspicions, right? Well . . . "The World's Best Bartenders' Guide" is exactly that - the best. The premise is simple. If you want to know how to mix the best drinks, ask the world's best bartenders. That is exactly the objective authors Joseph Scott and Donald Bain set for themselves and the result is nothing short of . . . well the world's best bartenders' guide. Along with identifying what their exhaustive research has determined to be the world's 50 greatest bars and their keepers, Scott and Bain share their secrets of what and how. I mean this book doesn't just tell you how to mix the classic martini. It tells you that the secret to making a martini a la the bartender at Morton's in Manhattan is to pour out the brine from the olive jar and replace it with vermouth. Variations on the Manhattan? The book offers more than a half-dozen, and a tip from the bar manager at Jardines Jazz Club in Kansas City - pour in the vermouth first, then it's easy to adjust the whiskey to taste. Want to know how to stock your home bar? It's there, compliments of the experts. Want to know the secret to mixing any cocktail? "Make and serve every drink with love," says the most popular barman in the Dominican Republic. Want to know all there is to know about cognac? See Salvatore Calabrese in the Library Bar at the Lanesborough Hotel in London. Want to try a centuries-old cognac? Salvatore will oblige - if your pocketbook can take it. From Cuba to China, Mexico to Paris, all points in the U.S., all weigh in here. I knew I was tired of the same old fare when my wife and I went out, or even entertained at home. What to do, however, was the problem. Until now. "The World's Greatest Bartenders' Guide." Kudos Messers Scott and Bain.
