If you’re an amateur bartender (or even a professional one looking to expand your range) this is a great book to show off your barmaking prowess. It has a good range of recipes from ones that are simple (but creative) to ones that are on the fancier side. All of the recipes are rare, so when you serve up your drinks you have a great conversation starter since nobody will have had your drinks before. Also, the book is printed on thicker paper that will hold up well under the occasional spill, so you can keep it in your kitchen or bar for years without worrying about it breaking down. A great book for home entertainers and bartenders looking for a “hook” alike!
