THE ULTIMATE BAR BOOK
Regardless of whether you are a skilled mixologist or a rookie, there will be something for you in The Ultimate Bar Book: The Comprehensive Guide to Over 1,000 Cocktails ($13). This book is crammed with tantalizing refreshments and has over 1000 recipes for drinks. There are drinks that use traditional liquors, beer, wine, sake and quite a few options for those who fancy something non-alcoholic. There is also a load of great recommendations for stocking a bar, garnishing drinks and, often the most important bit, useful hangover remedies for when you have gone to town on the recipes.
