About the Book
A Proper Drink is the first-ever book to tell the full, unflinching story of the contemporary craft cocktail revival. Award-winning writer Robert Simonson interviewed more than 200 key players from around the world, and the result is a rollicking (if slightly tipsy) story of the characters--bars, bartenders, patrons, and visionaries--who in the last 25 years have changed the course of modern drink-making. The book also features a curated list of about 40 cocktails--25 modern classics, plus an additional 15 to 20 rediscovered classics and classic contenders--to emerge from the movement. (Goodreads)
Well this book was not what I was expecting. It is a very detailed stories about how certain drinks came about and why they are popular. Many chapters include recipes (which is what I really wanted) and that adds a lot to this book. So for those that are looking into detailed accounts on how bartenders created drinks, this is the book for you!
