HASH(0x9be91564) out of 5 stars Go behind just about any bar...what do you find? 21 Jun. 2000
By - Published on
Format: Paperback
Mr. Bostons Official Bartenders Book, thats what you will find. From pubs in Scotland to hole in the wall bars in Hawaii, bartenders all over the world use this book. I find that no matter what, I always find this book usefull and it's always close at hand. The information is given in a style that a bartender understands. It does lack many of the "Trendy drinks" but those are hard to keep up with since you would have to publish a new version each month. But it does contain almost every tradional drink around and even some I havent heard of before!

HASH(0x9aae1294) out of 5 stars Excellent bar guide for basics and more. 4 Jan. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Best bar guide I've read; concise, excellent variety. What I especially like is that the recipes are from scratch; no powder or liquid mixes. It does list liquor ingredients by Mr. Boston brands but one can easily substitute one's favorite liquors. Also gives good basics on barware, glasses, measurements and more.

HASH(0x99d39510) out of 5 stars One of the best... 5 Aug. 2000
By - Published on
Format: Paperback
Concidered by many to be the bible of bartending, Mr. Boston has been a bestseller since 1935. Filled with information covering everything from how setup a homebar, flaming a drink, to party planning Mr. Boston is a must have for anyone interested in mixology. With over 1200 recipes Mr. Boston will give you plenty of recipes to choose from and experiment with.

HASH(0x99a74f00) out of 5 stars One of the better guides 29 Aug. 2003
By sseale - Published on
Format: Paperback
Although this is considered by many to be the bible of bartending, I found that it is incomplete. There are many newer drinks that are not mentioned. Unfortionately, many of the guides that have a more complete drink list do not have as much peripheral information. This book is really good at helping a person set up their own home bar. It also has little fun facts about alcohol and toasts from around the world.
