The subtitle on this is “Elements of Cocktail Technique.” That’s right, technique. Unlike other books which are full of complex recipes and daunting to even the most seasoned home-bartender, Morgenthaler’s book explores the technical side of crafting the perfect cocktail. How exactly do you make strawberry liqueurs at home? What is the proper way to shake vs. stir certain drinks? With step by step guides and photographs, this is the must-have book for the home bartender.
