A must have for anyone interested in contemporary bartending. Meehan covers everything from bar design and management (of limited interest to the non-professional) to an overview of the major spirits and example recipes.

Not as much of a recipe collection as his earlier PDT Cocktail Book, but drilling much more into the philosophy and techniques. Highly recommended.

adventurous informative lighthearted slow-paced


This book not only guides you through the description and genesis of numerous excellent cocktails organized by spirit, but also pulls back the curtain to reveal the inner workings of the modern bar. A must read for anyone who loves cocktails and has ever wanted to own, operate, or work in a bar.
