About This Book

A definitive catalog of the most suave cocktails. To shake or stir? Muddle or mix? The Gentleman’s Guide to Cocktails answers all of these questions and more. It’s the ultimate guide for the cocktail barman. Alfred Tong teaches you how to mix a margarita with mojo, a gimlet with grace, and a piña colada that packs a punch. With more than 150 cocktail recipes—personally selected by Alfred for their coolness factor and retro quality—it covers classics like the Bloody Mary, fizzes, fogmatics, and alcoholic teas. Illustrated with sophisticated drawings by Jack Hughes, this book will turn the wannabe barman into the perfect cocktail party host.

Reviews

  • "As much as you like to drink drinks, when you get behind the bar to mix them, your repertoire is limited to about 3. The Gentleman’s Guide To Cocktails contains a whopping 150 recipes for you to work with. After all, if given a choice, your friends will probably drink something besides a vodka soda. " ~WERD.com

    "At first glance, The Gentleman’s Guide to Cocktails looks like it could have been left lying around on the set of Mad Men. We can only assume that that was intentional, because the only thing that the people on the set of Mad Men seem to love more than drama, women and cigarettes is booze." ~Coolmaterial.com

    "Sometimes you don't want to drink beer. Read this book and know what to order next time you're craving some whiskey and taking shots is out of the question." ~The College Gentleman

    "A definitive cataloge of the most suave cocktails...It's the ultimate guide for a cocktail barman. ...This book will turn the wannabe barman into the perfect cocktail party host." ~The Fancy
