The Cocktail Primer: All You Need to Know to Make the Perfect Drink (Google eBook)
The original cocktails Eben Klemm creates as master mixologist for B.R. Guest Restaurants in New York City are the talk of the town. Now you can learn to mix like a master with The Cocktail Primer: All You Need to Know to Make the Perfect Drink. In this mixology guide to creating both classic cocktails and modern twists, Klemm teaches people on the other side of the bar how to make drinks at home.
Klemm's philosophy is simple: You don't need to memorize a thousand cocktail recipes; you just need to have a perfunctory knowledge of the basic families into which drinks are divided. Toss in a few bartending skills, a few simple ingredients, some classic recipes, and a few contemporary spin-offs, and you have all you need to know to make the perfect drink for any occasion.
Improve your home bar and impress your guests with The Cocktail Primer.
