This has some nice, easy to follow recipes for a variety of cocktails. I appreciated that there were plenty of photos, I like to see what the drink is supposed to look like. I haven't had a chance to try any of them yet, but hopefully soon.

I chose Modern Mixologist for a wedding gift and the bride and groom are delighted! The book is beautiful! Great for entertaining. Gives information on setting up a bar from glasses to recipes, of course.
