"Nearly every crucial fact regarding cocktail construction...is elevated by Wondrich's erudite and estimably sharp wit.--Wine & Spirits

Anyone can lift a glass-but drinking with class, taste, and wisdom is a completely different matter. David Wondrich, Esquire magazine's renowned "drink pundit," is here to remedy that sad situation and restore a tradition of intelligent, sophisticated drinking. Wondrich simply provides the liveliest history of drinks imaginable, serving up wit and wisdom that will help you sort out the classic from the crass and master the fundamentals of mixology. The highlight: the delicious drinks themselves. The recipes, with loads of information and variants, appear on pages brightened with vintage photos that perfectly capture the spirit of each cocktail. There are daiquiris, amusingly named gin drinks like "William Seabrook's Asylum," a Whiskey Sour, Margarita, Vodka Martini, and a barfull more!

David Wondrich is the writer and mixologist behind "Alcohol and How to Mix It," Esquire's online repository of more than 150 classic cocktails and other alcoholic potions, and a regular contributor to the magazine.

An opening essay on ingredients and techniques makes this a requisite volume for the serious mixologist."--"Booklist.
