Very well written and researched book for both beginners and those in the trade looking for a little reference volume. Recipes range from very approachable to professional level in terms of access to ingredients, and the explanations of what makes a spritz and of various vermouths and amaros makes a good starting point to creating your own summer time mixed drinks.
The ideal book containing everything you wanted to know about the most iconic of drinks, from its origins in Ancient Rome to the modern drinks served in the most upmarket of cocktail bars. You can drink your way around the world! I was given a digital copy of this book by the publisher Ten Speed via Netgalley in return for an honest unbiased review.
