Overview

Perfectly mixed cocktails deserve their reputation as the key element of any great party. Drinkology is an elegantly packaged, entertainingly written, and easy-to-use guidebook for the budding bartender and the experienced mixologist alike. Contained herein are the techniques and secrets anyone needs to create classic cocktails and cutting edge concoctions.James Waller has meticulously tested the recipes for 450 drinks, from such standards as the Gimlet and Gin and Tonic to nostalgic faves like the Singapore Sling and Pink Lady. Drinkology also includes sections on frozen blender drinks, hot drinks, party punches, and nonalcoholic cocktails, as well as practical information on setting up a home bar and preparing for parties. Designed to be used �at the bar�—print-tabbed pages let the drinkmaker quickly find recipes, organized by liquor, while a waterproof Kivar cover protects it from spills. Its compact size and sewn binding allow it to lie flat, while a ribbon marker keeps tabs of your favorite cocktail. Fully indexed and with a glossary of bartending terms, Drinkology also features playful instructional art and illustrations by Glenn Wolff.
