Genau ein Buch mit Cocktailrezepten braucht der Mensch - dieses. Jedenfalls, wenn man auf immer bunteren Chichi im Glas keinen Wert legt und stattdessen Leber und Hirn mit Qualität haltbar einlegen möchte :)

Offers drink recipes that are paired down to only the essentials - both a good and a bad thing sometimes. Descriptions and explanations of drink types and ingredients are thorough and well-written. Definitely a worthy edition to a bartender's library. Or even a hometender's library.

Helluva drink guide and some interesting info here. Definately worth having if you enjoy your cocktails or want to keep a well stocked bar.

Loved Schumann's "Tropical Bar Book," but this one is indistinguishable from umpteen other basic bar manuals out there now.
