The bottom line is that this book is great for Negroni-lovers, for a few different reasons. Similar to a cookbook, there are a few distinct aspects of a cocktail book that are important, which I'll consider individually, along with a final impression.

The first is imagery and book design, which in my opinion is the most important. With dozens of cocktail recipes it would be difficult to try all of them, so ideally the book gives you an impression of the drinking experience through presentation. T

I received a free copy of this book through the Read It Forward program from Crown Publishing.

Let's start with some good things. This book looks beautiful. It's sleek and sophisticated. It's full of sophisticated photos and great design.

Negroni love

The lore surrounding the Negroni is enough reason for the book but add recipes from some of the most accomplished bar folk on the planet, this is truly a great read. There are enough recipes in here to keep you inebriated.
