My friends are all booze hounds they shuffle up the stairs to my apartment asking for drink after drink after drink Not all of them can utilize old fashions all night, for them I studied this book s shims. my mother stole this from me, she is enjoying it immensely though Fantastic Gorgeous photos, easy to do recipes, and feels hand crafted with lots of quotes and commentary. A unique cocktail book, straight forward recipes, gorgeous pictures, and very usefully, multiple indexes by mood, kind, ingredients, and era Has a number of tasty recipes, although somewhat vermouth and bitters heavy I do find many of the flavours a bit flat without the extra alcohol. I love the concept behind this book I loved the drink options, though I have to admit that I haven t actually tried to make my own yet.I have never been a big drinker, but I do enjoy a good cocktail and this book delivers I feel confident about attending some networking functions now that I can sip and enjoy lightly.I did win this book as part of a Goodreads giveaway, and it will be staying on my bookshelf for a long time to come.
