Bar Book is the only technique-driven cocktail handbook, breaking bartending down into essential techniques that anyone can understand and then applying them to building the best drinks. Like Ruhlman's Twenty, but for home bar enthusiasts, this book teaches techniques, methods and critical thinking. Sixty recipes demonstrate the concepts covered in the text. From renowned bartender and cocktail brain Jeffrey Morganthaler.
