    The Essential Cocktail: The Art of Mixing Perfect Drinks

    $35.00

    Dale DeGroff is widely regarded as the world’s foremost mixologist. Hailed by the New York Times as "single-handedly responsible for what’s been called the cocktail renaissance," he earned this reputation during his twelve years at the fashionable Promenade Bar in New York City’s Rainbow Room. It was there in 1987 that he not only reintroduced the cocktail menu to the country but also began mixing drinks from scratch, using impeccably fresh ingredients instead of the widespread mixes used at the time. Known especially for crafting unique cocktails, reviving classics, and coaxing superior flavor from his ingredients, DeGroff has selected his 100 essential drinks and 100 of their best variations—including many of his signature cocktails—for this premier mixology guide.
