The Ultimate Cocktail BookUnknown - 2000
Once again the epitome of glamour in America, cocktails are both taste-bud-tingling treats and superbly stylish. Sophisticated, cool, and appealing to the eye, just like the beverages it presents, this ultimate book on the ultimate libation is itself a recipe for the perfect cocktail party. Begin with the basics--essential equipment, decorating and serving tips, unassailable bartending advice. Mix in hundreds of spectacular color photographs and a full range of fabulous concoctions, from the classic Martini to the treacherous Knockout, from elegant slow sippers to deadly Scorpions, from a Cool Wind to a Sirocco. Garnish with a chapter on alcohol-free cocktails too delicious and good-looking to limit to the drivers. The result? A subtle and harmonious blend of information stirred, not shaken, into a book with a powerful kick.
