It’s a system, a tool kit, a recipe book. Beginning with one irresistible idea--a complete home bar of just 12 key bottles--here’s how to make more than 200 classic and unique mixed drinks, including sours, slings, toddies, and highballs, plus the perfect Martini, the perfect Manhattan, and the perfect Mint Julep.
It’s a surprising guide--tequila didn’t make the cut, and neither did bourbon, but genever did. And it’s a literate guide--describing with great liveliness everything from the importance of vermouth and bitters (the “salt and pepper” of mixology) to the story of a punch bowl so big it was stirred by a boy in a rowboat.

Easy to understand and who wouldn't want a fully stocked bar under $200
I got this in my October Bespoke Post with a make your own bitters kit. I wasn't expecting a book but am so glad it was there. I spent just under $200 and stocked my bar with 12 bottles of really good spirits. I've been working my way through the book making different drinks. Its a great primer that makes you feel like a grown up ordering out.
