Everything you need for: Classic Cocktails Done Well

Tried-and-True Recipes for the Home Bartender

In my opinion, cocktails have been enjoying a renaissance. However, they can get pretty pricey. If you want to host at home, here is a good resource. It is divided into sections on having the classics at home, followed by drinks made with gin, whiskey, brandy, rum and “other spirits and liqueurs.” There are also sections at the end of the book including one on cocktails by occasion.

This title is filled with recipes and photos. I enjoyed the first chapter with its explanation of the cocktail’s history and styles. This was followed by a section that made suggestions for stocking one’s bar in terms of both the alcohol and the glasses. Following this was information on cocktail making techniques. I learned quite a bit in this part of the book before going on to the directions for the 75 different drinks.

Each recipe begins with some history on that drink. There is then a list of the tools needed along with the ingredients and directions.

This book is a terrific resource. Just remember…please drink responsibly.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Zeitgeist for this title. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
