The intro/techniques section is short but packed with useful information and written in a style that made everything very clear The recipes that follow are alphabetical What is amazing is almost every recipe has a short story and the details of how the author experimented with the classic recipes to bring them up to modern tastes The book also includes some 'contemporary' recipes from the bar the author runs in the hotel. This book is a great addition for any home bar and enthusiast It’s informative yet approachable I found myself referring back to the book many times It is so muchthan just recipes It actually got me excited to start making these recipes and it made me look like a professional bartender while having friends over for drinks I love how the author put a modern twist on the classics and reading about the history was very interesting! The illustrations and front cover give it a Waldorf~Astoria/ New York City timeless feel This would make an amazing gift! This book offers an amazing collection of classic and modern cocktail recipes with an historic overview by which Frank depicts perfectly I now have an insight on the timeline and journey behind the cocktail craft and creation. Reading a sample ARC of The Waldorf Astoria Bar Book tonight, I kept thinking how perfect a gift this book would be for my friends who tend bar A mix of classic cocktails, local variations, preprohibition originals, and the tales behind them, the cocktail enthusiasts in your life wil love geeking out over this book! I can't wait for The Waldorf Astoria Bar Book to come out! Has the feel and look of an old cocktail book but with useful updates Includes recipes on making certain bitters but also lists commercial substitutes Cocktails are printed alphabetically like many old books but thankfully this book includes a nice index when looking for a cocktail with a specific ingredient. This review originally published in Looking For a Good Book Rated 5.0 of 5There's no shortage of barrelated/bartender books on the market today, and I've browsed through quite a few of them in my search to find interesting new drinks with classic liquors For a number of reasons all personal the Waldorf Astoria has a special meaning to me and so I was eager to give this book a look.And it has become my favorite bar book to date.It isn't because author Frank Caiafa has come up with all sorts of new drinks, there are plenty of bar books along those lines This has become my favorite bar book because it does something that I haven't seen before at least not without commercial intentions This book gets specific with the brands of liquor to use in making the drinks.Normally I would think that this is just a means to sell a specific brand but Caiafa explains why a specific brand For instance, my wife enjoys her gin and tonic and I wanted to try something a little different for her One of the first drinks I came across in the books was for the drink Alaska which calls for either Hayman's Old Tom gin or Beefeater London dry gin After listing the ingredients and how to mix them together (like any ordinary bar book) Caiafa then explains the drink a little bit Here he writes:Different styles of gin (barrelaged Old Tom, London dry, etc.) were used with varying results before finally settling on theoriginal Old Tom, which is the one called for in the Old Books Though harmonious, it doesn’t challenge the Chartreuse TheLondon dry–style gin does add contrast and a bit of spiciness that you may also enjoy I recommend trying both.That makes sense! All gins are not the same Just as I've been searching for the perfect bourbon for my Manhattans because all bourbons are not the same, it makes complete sense that the gin used will have an effect on the drink I've since looked the Alaska up as my wife enjoys this particular concoction, and none of the other versions (it's not an uncommon drink) mention the brand of gin to use.Any drink I've made in here, I've paid careful attention to use the brand names as listed to get the best representation of the Waldorf Astoria drinks While I haven't made all the drinks in here I haven't even made a lot of them I have selected a few based on my own interests and I've found a few new drinks to add to my list of drinks (Bagpiper anyone?).I haven't yet made any of my own bitters (Caiafa recommends this) but I am intrigued and have gotten myself ready by ordering some bitters bottles.I've talked this book up quite a bit since getting it and making drinks This past summer, when friends have come over to sit on the deck with us, I've usually brought out a new drink from the Waldorf Astoria Bar Book, which is usually a great conversation starter, and I would talk about the book and why I was enjoying it so much I know at least one person who received this as a Christmas present because I kept raving about some of the new drinks I was finding here.The book is mostly comprised of the drink recipes, but there is a small section on Large Cups and Punches and one for Hot Drinks and one for Historical Concoctions which was quite fascinating.I've been searching for the perfect Perfect Manhattan ever since having one in a little restaurant bar in Upstate New York a decade back I've tried a lot of different bourbons and have settled a two or three that make it just right for me, and it was reaffirming to note that Caiafa's choice was the first one to make my own list.If you have an interest in mixed drinks, you really should get this book.Looking for a good book? Frank Caiafa's The Waldorf Astoria Bar Book is packed, not only with drink recipes, but information on how to make each particular drink as best as possible and it is highly recommended.I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher, through Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review. A fabulous cocktail book filled with information and specific directions to make that special cocktail This is a classic cocktail book that will remain useful in any collection Frank Caiafa has done a great job in preserving cocktail history and promoting the craft of the cocktail.
