Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
In this colorful, descriptive, and well-organized volume, master sommelier Gasnier inspires readers to sample and appreciate a more diverse range of drinks. His comprehensive text covers more than 1000 libations, from Manhattans to mojitos. Each chapter opens with an overview of how to taste the drink and how to choose the appropriate glassware before moving on to tables that (for the wines) name grape varieties and their respective regions and Gasnier's comments on particular flavors and aromas that tasters may encounter. The only drawback is the book's coffee-table dimensions, which will prohibit readers from using Drinks as a quick, handy reference. Its overall thoughtfulness, however, more than compensates. A good addition to public libraries that already hold classics like Mr. Boston: Official Bartender's and Party Guide.-Shelley Brown, Richmond P.L., Vancouver, B.C. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
