Trader Vic's Bartender's Guide Revised

For twenty-five years, professional barkeeps and home mixologists alike have found TRADER VIC'S BARTENDER'S GUIDE an invaluable aid. Now, with this revised edition, the popular restaurateur has made his classic handbook even more useful. All the newest mixed-drink creations have been added, the passe concoctions have been dropped, and many recipes have been modernized and streamlined. Here are all the classics — Martinis, Manhattans, Gimlets. Daiquiris —143 exotic Trader Vic specials, and some 1,000 more, including entire chapters on punches, hot drinks, wine cups and other specialties. There's even a collection of tasty non-alcoholic drinks. The all-new illustrations include a comprehensive guide to glasses and other bar-ware. And, of course, the book is filled with the Trader's amusing anecdotes and sensible advice about selecting, preparing and enjoying drinks. In short, the book is practical, entertaining, completely up-to-date—and likely to remain a fixture on American bars for the next twenty-five years.

Trader Vic (Victor J. Bergeron) likes to call himself a "saloon-keeper," although it would be more accurate to call him one of the world's leading restaurateurs. He owns and operates Polynesian restaurants in almost every major American city, and has recently opened "Trader Vic's" in London and Munich as well. The creator of many of the drinks in this book, he also keeps a sharp eye on the kitchen and has shared his recipes in two other books: Trader Vic's Book of Food and Drink and Trader Vic's Pacific Island Cook¬book. A book on Mexican cooking is now in the works, and he has recently published a children's book, The Menehunes, about the legendary little people of Hawaiian folk lore. In his spare time, he has become a painter and sculptor of some accomplishment, exhibiting his works widely in California. He lives in San Francisco.
