The 12 Bottle Bar
A Dozen Bottles, Hundreds of Cocktails, A New Way to DrinkeBook - 2014
It's a system, a tool kit, a recipe book. Beginning with one irresistible idea--a complete home bar of just 12 key bottles--here's how to make more than 200 classic and unique mixed drinks, including sours, slings, toddies, and highballs, plus the perfect Martini, the perfect Manhattan, and the perfect Mint Julep. It's a surprising guide--tequila didn't make the cut, and neither did bourbon, but genever did. And it's a literate guide--describing with great liveliness everything from the importance of vermouth and bitters (the salt and pepper" of mixology) to the story of a punch bowl so big it was stirred by a boy in a rowboat.
