3.0 étoiles sur 5 The lack of an ingredient index makes me question why anyone needs to buy the book rather than just rely on the internet 26 octobre 2013
Par Maine Colonial - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
I don't have a huge collection of cocktail books, but I have several and I thought I'd like an encyclopedic type of book. I like to start with a cocktail book's introductory sections, and this book has very good sections on bar tending basics, the bartender's kit, glassware, garnishes and key ingredients.

This is a huge collection of recipes, presented in alphabetical order by the name of the drink; i.e., not broken down into sections by type of cocktail or main ingredient. Each recipe includes a small color photograph of the drink and a short, straightforward description of its ingredients and preparation. Following that, the editors give a star rating, their one-sentence assessment under the subhead "We Say" and, in some cases, a one-sentence description of the drink's origin.

If all you're looking for is a quick reference, the book is fine. There are 3000+ recipes, so you're likely to find most drinks whose names you know. But considering that I can find any drink recipe and a lot more in an instant on the internet, I really wanted the book to offer something more; something of the magic and romance of mixology. But there is little of that here.

What's more, there is a serious and surprising negative. I would expect an encyclopedic treatment to include a thorough index, but all this has is an index by specific brands of liquor with whose proprietors the editors have partnered. That's advertising, not indexing. The text makes it clear that there is an ingredient index at the editors' online site--and there is--but that begs the question why to buy this book at all, rather than just rely on the internet.

I was also surprised to find a number of inconsistencies within the text and between the book and the website when it comes to drinks' star ratings. For example, the Young Man Cocktail is rated 4 stars in the book, but only 1 star on the website; the Amatitan Twist is rated 4 stars in the main part of the book, but 5 stars in the back, under the Luxardo Maraschino Originale heading in the featured brand index.

If you really feel the need for an encyclopedic cocktail book, I'd say this is a decent choice, with the highlight being the introductory sections and the lowlight the lack of an ingredient index. But I'm a lot more likely to stick with the DiffordsGuide website.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great compendium of drink recipes. 27 novembre 2013
Par Rawim - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
So you know how there are all those drink books out there, which just have page and page of drink recipes, that only give you the name, the ingredients and amounts, and five words on how to mix them? There are a lot of those out there. And they mostly stink.

This book is like those, but does it sooo much better.

So you get 800 recipes arranged alphabetically. I have seen some complaints about this, from people who think that the recipes should be arranged by main ingredient. But if you hear about a drink, and you don't know the ingredient list, you would want to look it up by name anyways. So being listed alphabetically does not bother me.

After a nice introductory section covering all the basics, you get the recipes.

Each drink is then listed by name, and then you are told whether it is a new recipe or perhaps a key recipe.

A key recipe is a drink that can be made with a combination of the 14 key ingredients listed at the beginning of the book. Quite a nice feature if you are just starting out, and building your home bar, put together the 14 key ingredients and you can easily make a couple hundred drinks from this book.

So you get a name, and an indicator or new or key.

The you get a rating from disgusting to excellent. I haven't noticed a drink actually listed as disgusting, but perhaps there is one in here.

You given a color photo of the drink, so y ou can either see if you may want to try it, or how you may want your finished product to look.

Next, a recommended glass to serve the drink in.

A recommended garnish.

And method to use when making the drink.

Then you get the actual recipe. The recipes are listed in amounts called "shots" which means they don't use ounces or milliliters. I equate a shot to an ounce, but you could also just use a small shot glass then to make all of your drinks. Makes it easy, so you don't need a jigger or measuring cup.

Finally you get a a little review of the author's personal thoughts on the drink and a sentence or two on the drinks history if you want to impress someone.

So if you are just looking for a book with a huge amount of recipes, this is the best book out there for that. Are there better books, with more information, or maybe better organized, or even with better drinks, perhaps. The this remains the best presentation of a large group of drink recipes I have seen yet.

If you have a question about the book, feel free to leave a comment below and I will try to answer it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Comprehensive! And a Great gift Idea 23 octobre 2013
Par Mary Lins - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
Right in time for holiday giving, "Cocktails: The Bartender's Bible", by Simon Difford, is a wonderfully comprehensive collection of over 3000 drink recipes, PLUS a "how to" guide for basic bar-tending. This book is perfect for beginners as well as seasoned cocktail mavens. It begins with the basics: tools, garnishes, glassware, etc. The book is well illustrated and the cocktails are in alphabetical order. I'm a self-declared Manhattan "expert" so I turned immediately to that page and was pleased to find that my recipes jive with theirs.

With over 3000 cocktails, there are of course the classics (e.g., Old Fashions, Manhattans, Side Cars, Martinis) but also plenty of new cocktails that I'd never heard of such as a Darth Vader, Fur Collar, Side Err and a Woxum, to name a few. The book does recommend certain name brands of liquors and mixers, but they can be easily substituted for your personal favorites.

The "coffee table" heft and size of the book and the brightness of the illustrations and quality of the paper, in my opinion, justifies the reasonable price point and this would make a gift you would be proud to give particularly for a wedding shower or a housewarming.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Compendium of Recipes 17 septembre 2013
Par jrl915 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
One complaint of prior editions of this book was the lack of an ingredient index. I purchased this book based on the over 3000 recipes and the promise of an ingredient index to help me locate recipes containing certain ingredients. I received a good-looking book with a great layout and professional photos and appearance. It certainly has the recipes, but the index is not quite as expected. There is a list of name brands at the end of the book, and for each product there is a list of recipes in which they are used. All recipes are not indexed. At the end of the book is a page advising the reader that recipes may be searched by ingredient at the author's website. The list of the world's best cocktail bars is missing.

The usual introductory information about the tools of the trade, techniques, and garnishes is also included.

If you're looking for a great-looking encyclopedia of recipes, you probably won't be able to beat this book. I recommend it.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Among the best, with one serious flaw 5 mai 2014
Par Michael H. Burkhardt - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is a real treasure trove of drink recipes. There don't seem to be a lot of "junk" recipes, as in other books of this kind that I've come across. The color photos and notes also set this book apart. I love this book as it is, but the lack of an ingredient index is a SERIOUS flaw. I don't mind that they emphasize "partner" products (which do have associated indexes, at least partial ones) but a comprehensive index would put this book over the top. Maybe in the 12th edition? Please?
