'The Ultimate Bar Book' is loaded with essential-to-know topics such as barware, tools, and mixing tips - this book has it all. As a mistress of mixology, the author has the classics down to a T - the Martini, the Bloody Mary, plus the many variations (the Dirty Martini, the Virgin Mary). And then there are all the creative new elixirs the author brings to the table, like the Tasmanian Twister Cocktail or the Citron Sparkler. Illustrations show precisely what type of glass should be used for each drink. With dozens of recipes for garnishes, rims, infusions, and syrups; punches, gelatin shooters, hot drinks, and non-alcoholic beverages; and - let's not forget - an essential selection of hangover remedies, 'The Ultimate Bar Book' is nothing short of top-shelf.
