Overview

From the world's best bartender, the perfect companion to his bestselling Classic Cocktails. Finish off a delicious dinner with drinks luxurious (brandies, armagnacs, and cognacs), smooth and earthy (malt whisky), and rich and distinguished (port). Linger with liqueurs sweet and luscious to the palate, and savor the ideal partner to all these drinks: a fine cigar. Along with the recipes for such classic treats as the Blanche Cocktail and the Blushin' Russian, plus his own much-praised originals, Calabrese dishes up delicious history, definitions of the different varieties, and advice on choosing a brand, tasting and testing, and serving. Throughout, there are boxed sidebars and a multitude of color photographs showing the regions from which these liquors come, their processing, and a range of delightful vintage posters, advertisements, and drawings. 176 pages (all in color), 4 1/2 x 7.
