Fabric bound hard cover, good book for putting on display somewhere. It’s very informational (sections on how to build a bar, different glasses, various mixologist terms, etc) so would be good for a beginner. There’s tons of unique cocktails too. Would recommend for any level!
This book is really put together well! And while still sifting thru it, I can tell you, their version of a sazarac was excellent!
First, a great read. Second, lots of terrific recipes, and if you pay attention, you’ll learn how to follow basic rules to craft your own. The first drink I tried was a Naked and Famous, because how could you not (plus I own yellow chartreuse). The Aviation recipe included improves upon everything I need every other recipe to improve- namely control the Luxardo and CDV. Now I get it.
Death & Co. is a book about the most amazing modern era cocktail bar ever. Almost every great cocktail bar in America will tell you the same thing. This gorgeous book gives you that context and then provides hundreds of cocktail recipes that are well organized and it is very easy to follow the instructions.
I absolutely love this book. Great recipes for interesting cocktails along with the history of how they started their bar as well as the science of producing wonderful cocktails. I definitely recommend for anyone interested in more than just recipes.
