The Complete Bartender's Guide by Dave Broom

The Complete Bartender's Guide is a handbook for anybody who wants to become a barman, either professionally or just to show off to family and friends. The centerpiece of the book is the cocktails section, which provides recipes and mixing instructions for around 600 of the most popular mixed drinks. And there are special features on 10 classic cocktails, detailing their history and the bartender responsible for their invention. In addition, the author explains the basics of stocking a bar at home. He advises in the correct conditions and temperatures in which to store the various ingredients which make up some of these drinks. As well as brief history of the base spirits and an explanation on the distilling processes to create them, there is also advice on the best brands to buy for all the world's principal alcoholic drinks. And, to round off The Complete Bartender's Guide, there is invaluable advice for anyone who is suffering after enjoying a cocktail or two too many.


Great for the bartender or those who like to mix it up at home. --Chilled Magazine
