Which drink, where and when? Which ingredients create a drink's character? Will ingredients marry happily, and should they be stirred or shaken? How are mixed drinks served to best advantage? This book is a comprehensive A-Z of the world's great drinks, including 250 cocktails and details on how to mix and serve them. There is a list of the bartender's essential tools and how to use them, plus advice on how to cure the inevitable hangover. Jackson's style shines through, combining detail, insight and humour.
