From the Publisher
First published in 2001 under the title `sauceguide to
Cocktails' this edition `#6' published October 2006. Over the past five
years this had developed to become what we believe to be the most
comprehensive and definitive cocktail book available.
From the Author
Unlike previous editions of our Cocktails guide in this
edition (#6) I have made every one of the 2,000 cocktails at least twice,
and some many times. I first sample each cocktail and adjust the recipe for
taste and simplicity. I then make each drink again for the accompanying
photograph. After our photographer has captured a drinks image I then
sample it again to see if it would benefit from any final adjustments.
I draw some recipes from my own collection of vintage and modern cocktail
books, referencing the source under the `Origin' of each drink. Others come
directly from my visiting leading bars around the world as I travel to
review bars for our quarterly guide. Some are my own invention and are
referenced "Created by yours truly".

Buy it if you just want to lazy away an afternoon or evening imagining your perfect drinks, buy it if you want to start making your own cocktails, buy it if you are established mixologist looking to widen their recipes .... In short BUY IT!
At least the recipes themselves are excellent and up-to-date - we have several that have become regular favourites (once the page is properly marked with a bit of paper!). In fact despite the issues above I've not seen a larger or more reliably delicious collection of cocktail recipes.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Everything from glassware, mixing, tools, and garnishes is covered and that's not even starting on the actual drinks. They have absolutely EVERY drink imaginable.
Now don't go looking for some drink that you invented years ago while you were in college, because it's not going to be there. But every legitimate drink is listed here. GREAT BOOK!
