American Bar: The Artistry of Mixing Drinks.

The drink mixer's bible!

An invaluable reference for any bartender or home entertainer, this book is conveniently organized into informative sections that explain how cocktails are made and include important information about their ingredients.

Inside American Bar you'll find:

  • Recipes for more than 500 drinks, listed alphabetically.
  • An easy-to-use drink index arranged by drink categories.
  • The fascinating history and names of leading brands of all the major cocktail components.
  • A handy guide to bartending equipment.
  • A glossary of international bar terms and measurements.

Hundreds of delightful 1930s-style line drawings by GŁnter Mattei illustrate the book. Together with the elegant binding this make the book even better. It just "feels right".

With more than 200 pages of interesting information about different types of liquors, wines distillates and liqueurs, including the making of these and historical information, the book is a valuable resource for every bartender or wanna-be bartender.

The writer, Charles Shumann has been a bartender for more than twenty years, the last ten as proprietor of Schumann's in Munich, Germany. This is his third book about bartending.

There are several bartending books on the market, but in my opinion this is one of the best books on bartending and cocktails.
