    For the mixologist in you

    I bought this for my husband, who is interested in Tiki drinks and other rum-related drinks. This looked right up his alley and it was in the Staff Picks section, which really helped me find it. I never would have thought to look for something like this. Thanks to the B&N staff member at the Grove!

    My husband has tried a few recipes from this book, and he loves it. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in drinks and spirits. The photos are quite interesting, too.

    A great distillation of vintage cocktails

    I have been making cocktails for a lot of years now and this has been one of my standard cocktail books for several years (since the 1st edition). The second edition adds a few new drinks and a spiral binding that stays open better.

    Regarding the book, Robert Hess of Drinkboy fame used to categorize drink books into the "Wad-o-drink" books and the specialized books. This is definitely in the second category. It represents a collection of drinks from the heyday of cocktail drinking that haven't remained in the common cocktail lexicon (and that were actually good). If you are interested in exploring cocktail drinking from a historical perspective, this is a must have volume. It provides clear recipes, great historic commentary and information on where to get many of the more obscure ingredients.
