Self-taught cocktail guru McIntosh offers a fresh, seasonal entry in the drinks-guide genre, which is expanding in popularity.

Mixologists at all levels of experience will delight in the array of options to stretch their repertoire and experiment on their own. Fresh approaches to popular cocktails, such as an olive oil martini, a smoked rosemary negroni sour, and a tiramisu espresso martini, are only a few standouts. Breakout sections cover preparing for a high-impact impression for parties, delicious mocktails that will please all manner of drinker, and a wide range of supporting syrups, shrubs, and presentation ideas to help drink creations stand out. This is a book that will please even the most discerning of cocktail connoisseurs.
VERDICT Those interested in cocktails, regardless of skill level, will return to this book time and again for inspiration, ideas, and guidance.
