    One thought on “The PDT Cocktail Book: The Complete Bartender's Guide from the Celebrated Speakeasy”

    1. Look, this book is pretty great. I mean it. Lots of recipes for not only cocktails, but infusions as well, explanations on how to do things like flame peels (if you were unfamiliar) - it's quite good. And truly, I appreciate the level of specificity used by Meehan in regards to liquor brands and what not, because ingredients very much matter.However.If I ever wanted to intimidate a friend OUT OF making their own drinks at home, which I would never, but ever, want to do, I would give them this bo [...]

    2. Fascinující pohled do zákulisí svébytného koktejlového baru. Přestože velkou část tvoří přehledně uspořádané recepty, mnohem poutavější je vysvětlení logiky za sestavováním menu, vytvářením nových sezonních drinků nebo jídelní recepty.

    3. The greatest book I never read! On a certain level I find it hard to fault. This is a handsome book you would be proud to have on your shelf, beautifully designed and illustrated, a fine example of the art of bookmaking that easily matches the art of the cocktails you'll find inside. And if you are a fan of New York's PDT, it has interesting information about the origins of the bar and, of course, many of the recipes for their legendary cocktails and the hot dogs. Whether you're an experienced b [...]

    4. Beautiful and impressive book, but one that will live on my bookshelf instead of my bar. The recipes are for serious cocktail geeks, but the instructions are for cocktail noobs. And I don't understand the chapter on how PDT is set up. It's more of a guide for creating your own PDT than for learning cocktails, and intermediate cocktail enthusiasts like me will be bored on learning how to make simple syrup and use a hawthorne strainer but overwhelmed by some of the other instructions and recipes. [...]

    5. If you know someone who like cocktails, buy them this book. They will love you forever. Not only is it a beautiful book, but the recipes and lore are great. It's one of the best cocktail books I've ever read and will be a permanent reference on my bar.

    6. You'll probably not ever make a fraction of the recipes in this book, but the reviews that mark it as the bartender's manual of our craft cocktail era are not wrong. And it has a freaking annotated bibliography at the end. A must-own for 21st-century boozehounds.

    7. The best modern cocktail book out there. Taken alongside David Wondrich's Imbibe, you have nearly everything you need to begin taking cocktails seriously.

    8. The book does contain some nice recipes and the art work is great. But I would have loved some more details to the drinks.
