The Fine Art of MIXING DRINKS by DAVID A. EMBURY
Mixing drinks is a matter of fine art, not of secret ritual. Many people fail to use top-quality liquor and do not understand that each ingredient has a specific role and that a change in proportions can spoil the drink. But there is hope for all who like their drinks mixed right!
This is the Escoffier of cocktail books. More than a compilation of recipes, it is delightful, urbane reading for all who aspire to prepare drinks which are refreshingly palatable, not merely potable. It covers everything from judging fine liquor to selecting a corkscrew.
Most important, it names brands and explains what's new in types of liquor. Finally, there is a highly enjoyable and thoroughgoing discussion of the use and abuse of liquor which explodes a number of generally held misconceptions.
