The Bartender's Book is a handbook for anybody who wants to become a barman, either professionally or just to to show off to family and friends. The centerpiece of the book is the cocktails section, which provides recipes and mixing instructions for hundreds of the most popular mixed drinks. And there are special features on 10 classic cocktails, detailing their history and the bartender responsible for their invention. In addition, the author explains the basics of stocking a bar at home. He advises in the correct conditions and temperatures in which to store the various ingredients which make up some of these drinks. And, to round off The Bartender's Book, there an index of the cocktails, listed by their base spirits, and a glossary of all the terms in bartending and mixology.
