The Art of the Bar Book
Some days, you just want to plunk a couple pieces of ice in a glass and splash some booze on them. But some days you want something a little more complex, something with a few more steps. In fact, it can be said that mixing a good stiff drink is what separates man from the common beast. In fact, if we have one bit of advice for you, it's "don't be afraid of the classy cocktail." That's where the Art of the Bar (Amazon) comes in.
Its authors, Jeff Hollinger and Rob Schwartz, are bartenders at the Absinthe Brasserie and Bar, a famous San Francisco landmark for the discerning drinker. They know what they're talking about, and we've only heard good things about the bar and the book. We've got a copy on its way to us, and we'll et you know once we whip up a few of these legendary libations. If you can't wait, pick up a copy of your own at Amazonand get to mixing; for more info go to TheArtoftheBar.com.
