The newest and ninth edition to the bestselling "Bartenders' Black Book" franchise has an added 143 brand-new recipes that have poured forth from the minds of bartenders, professional and layperson, around the world over the last two years. That brings the total beverage count to 3,000...more than double that of any other drink guide. New to the edition are sections dealing with the newest trends in fine imbibing including: Dessert drinks; The world's finest Cognacs; Flavored Vodkas, Gins and Rums; and, Floaters, Shooters and Layered Drinks. Robert M. Parker Jr.'s Vintage Guide, and Mr. Cunningham's already vast Martini section have been expanded and updated. Of course this book still has all its classic features: an index by ingredients, in-depth mixing instructions, metric conversion tables, a list of every possible garnish, and sections on hot drinks, frozen drinks, beers, ales, lagers, and 'malternatives'.
