Excellent cocktail book,
This review is from: The Savoy Cocktail Book (Savoy London) (Hardcover)
Wanting to purchase a classic cocktail book I was drawn to this one after enjoying cocktails at the American Bar at the Savoy after it re-opened a few years ago. I was a bit hesitant after reading some of the reviews on here, but thought that at this price it was worth a try, and i'm throughly glad I did. It's a fantastic book, and beautifully packaged. It looks as though it's a facsimile of the cocktail menu from the Savoy in the 1920's as it's very Art Deco in it's design and I find this really appealing. As to the cover I think it's quite classy, and the Art Deco style matches perfectly with the design inside, hence I don't see why people are complaining about it, unless of course they did not buy this edition (I believe there have been quite a few editions over the years, but this is the most recent). As to the cocktails, well a fantastic variety, and I think i'll be trying out new ones for many years to come as it seems to be a very comprehensive book.
Would definately recommend.
