The Martini Book
201 Ways to Mix the Perfect American Cocktail
The Martini Book includes dozens of delicious new recipes and even more useful information on creating flawless versions of our most popular and enduring cocktail.
It's classic, sublime, and America's favorite indulgence— the martini. As the symbol for sophistication and "cool," it stands alone. The traditional "dry martini," made with gin and a hint of vermouth, may be the starting point but The Martini Book takes it to the next level, offering hundreds of modern twists in addition to the tried and true original.
Make no mistake, the classic versions of the drink are here, complete with tips for making them perfectly every time. But for those who are more adventurous or looking to expand their drink repertoire, new recipes include the Flirtini, the GreenTeani, the Frosty Mango Martini, the Ginger Snap Martini, and many, many more. There is also practical information on stirring and shaking, a list of essential bar tools (including glassware), and a list of must-have ingredients for any home bar.
