Another Bartender's must!,
This review is from: The Savoy Cocktail Book (Savoy London) (Hardcover)
Harry Craddock has often been refered to as the only drink purist, and was probably the world first mixologist. He is certainly well above his contemporary -sorry Mr. Dick Bradsell! As essential as this book may be to any pofesional bartender, it is not on the shopping list of "Ibiza"-styled barmen. Indeed, is has a refreshing lack of disco-drink, and focuses only on true classics -sometimes with a Craddock's twist!. However, before being enlightnened by his masterful exelency, one will have to get their heads around the measurments used in the recipes... -What on earth is a "Pony" or a "split"? But, this is a small price to pay for some of the finest drinks ever created. Last but not least, the packaging is superb!
