It's taken me a while to find a cocktail compendium that I was willing to buy. I wanted a good number of recipes, both classic and modern, to have it indexed by both recipe title and ingredients (and not just the main one), and to preferably be spiral bound so that it will stay open as I'm concocting my drink. This fits the bill perfectly so far, and I'm one for one in terms of finding and enjoying a drink from it.

Glad to have this in my cookbook collection- Spiral bound so is easy to open flat. Easy to reference drinks by name.
