Rate this:
In a dynamic and fun-to-read format, THE BAR comprehensively profiles the hundreds of varieties of spirits essential to any bartender's repertoire. Restaurateur Olivier Said and food writer James Mellgren outline the historical background of each spirit, how it is produced, and how best to enjoy it. This bar book, however, is not just a compilation of recipes but an erudite romp through the history of spirits, from the perspective of two veteran bartenders who have tended bar in more than 12 establishments, spanning seven cities in three countries between them. THE BAR will educate, inspire, and amuse both professional and home bartenders who want to better understand the alchemy and the traditions behind their favorite cocktails.
