Every bartender or cocktail enthusiast should have this book on their shelf.
The Essential Bar Book: An A to Z Guide, written by former Wine Spectator editor Jennifer Fiedler, is the most comprehensive and interesting bartending guide we’ve come across. Fiedler answers every question you might have about booze, whether it’s “Will absinthe really make me crazy?” to “What is a Gibson, anyway?” Each chapter is a deep dive into everything booze related, including fun facts, mythology behind classic cocktails and 150 recipes.
A must-have for anyone who loves cocktails or a good story.
