Overview

Mix more than 140 drinks to order for everyone's taste, using precise recipes drawn from famous and historic bars and bartenders. With this guide, you can regale your guests with the five most popular theories on how a cocktail got its name, the origin of the Stinger (its speed in causing a buzz), and the Sidecar (named for a military officer's custom of arriving at Harry's Bar in the sidecar of a chauffeur-driven motorcycle). Classic recipes such as the Martini and the Bloody Mary are included, as well as trendy new shooters. Here's information about a range of spirits, champagnes, and wines, plus non-alcoholic teasers. There's even a quick-study course on how to stock a bar, what equipment and glasses to use, and how to master Tom Cruise's bottle-slinging moves in the movie Cocktail.
