The Ultimate Bar Book: The Comprehensive Guide to Over 1,000 Cocktails

Mittie Hellmich, Arthur Mount


The Ultimate Bar Book — The bartender’s bible

James Beard nominee for Best Wine and Spirit Book

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.
