The Ultimate Bar Book — The bartender's bible and a James Beard nominee for the best Wine and Spirit book, 2008

The cocktail book for your home: The Ultimate Bar Book is an indispensable guide to classic cocktails and new drink recipes. Loaded with essential-to-know topics such as barware, tools, and mixing tips.

Classic cocktails and new drinks: As the mistress of mixology, the author Mittie Hellmich has the classics down for the Martini, the Bloody Mary—and the many variations such as the Dirty Martini and 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.

Illustrated secrets of classic cocktails and more: 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.

Amazing book! A must have

I have the hard cover version of this book and I keep it near my home bar at all times. Very informative. It’s not just recipes, but a book of history, techniques, and descriptions of different types of ingredients like gins and cognacs. Also has a nice section for some fairly complexed non-alcoholic drinks. It’s perfect for when I have guests that don’t drink alcohol. They can still enjoy a tasty beverage.
