The Comprehensive Guide to Over 1,000 Cocktails! Ultimate Bar Book is the first and only guide to classic and new drink recipes. Loaded with essential-to-know topics such as barware, tools, and mixing tips, this book has it all.

As a mistress of mixology, the author has the classics down to a T - the Martini, the Bloody Mary, plus the many variations (the Dirty Martini, the Virgin Mary). And then there are all the creative new elixirs the author brings to the table, like the Tasmanian Twister Cocktail or the Citron Sparkler.

Illustrations show precisely what type of glass should be used for each drink. With dozens of recipes for garnishes, rims, infusions, and syrups; punches, gelatin shooters, hot drinks, and non-alcoholic beverages; and - let's not forget - an essential selection of hangover remedies, Ultimate Bar Book is nothing short of top-shelf!

Customer Reviews
Handy wee book.
"Bought this book as a present for my son who is a barman. Looks an excellent comprehensive guide. Arrived well within time stated. Great service!"
David Roscoe - Wemyss Bay, 21st December '16
Fantastic Book
"This is a fantastic book. Very easy to navigate and easy to read recipes. It's full of amazing cocktails. This book will certainly make you better at making drinks."
Conor - Northern Ireland, 1st March '16
Not Your Typical Cocktail Book
"This book is better than I thought it would be! I was looking for something that wasn't just your typical cocktail recipe book, and wanted something that gave more context and history behind certain drinks and more information about the different alcohols. This book is great!! It's small in size, has a classy cover, and is packed full of information - great for anyone with a keen interest in cocktail making as a hobby and interested in learning more about it."
ssks - London, 5th January '15
Great Buy
"Nice to have a book that is not 90% pictures."
Anthony Pritchard - Frome, 15th August '13
Bar book
"Full of useful info on how to stock your bar with essential equipment. Cocktail recipes are yummy. Fantastic buy and well worth the price, would recommend to anyone starting a home bar."
Wendy Smith - Scotland, 9th December '09
Ultimate? Yes!
"Great book, I really can't regret my choice! Stories and things-to-know of every different type of alcohol, useful tips and tricks for the occasional/home barman, and of course, tons of recipes!"
Denis Rocca - Lyon, France, 17th August '09
Not so ultimate!
"Very disappointing as there are no pictures! Great to know that there are over 1,000 cocktails and to have the recipes for them but I am not likely to make them if I haven't got a picture to show me what the finished result should look like. I will be returning this item."
Lesley - Durham, 22nd April '09
Drinkstuff says: Thank you for your comments Lesley. The Ultimate Bar Book has fantastic detail displayed in a concise format and is very popular with our customers. There are line drawings of the type of glass to use with each cocktail but no actual colour images of the completed cocktails. Please see our other cocktail books for books of this nature.
Great little book
"Has all the information you need in it as well as some great cocktails. Definitely my favourite read at the moment!"

"The Ultimate Bar Book is a great reference book for all barman, the only problem is that the drinks are all meaured in ounces and converting the measures can mean some drinks don't taste quite right, but still a fantastic resource for behind the bar."
Charli Hatch - Oxford, 27th October '07
