It is unusual in that it does not contain hundreds upon hundreds of recipes. I believe the best cocktails deserve more attention than the mere scribing of their ingredients and instructions on how to make them. The classics should not be lost in a quagmire of recipes with every conceivable (and sometimes inconceivable) name, most of which nobody has ever heard of, let alone tried out. This book contains most of the usual introductory material present in many cocktail books, such as descriptions on glassware, ingredients, measures, tips, etc. The main differentiating factor about this book, however, is that it contains a description and history for each of the twenty cocktails, as well as a section on the History of Cocktails in general. The target audience would be amateurs who like to entertain guests at home, not the professional bartender. In today’s affluent society, this represents a huge market. The users of this book would be secure in the knowledge that all twenty cocktails are classics, and they would not be overwhelmed by hundreds of irrelevant concoctions using hundreds of different weird and wonderful ingredients. They would have a definitive list of ingredients and equipment to set up their bar, as well as all the theoretical knowledge required to mix good cocktails. The cocktails covered in this book are as follows:Black RussianBloody MaryCaipirinhaChampagne CocktailCuba LibreDaiquiriHarvey WallbangerKirManhattanMargaritaMartiniNegroniOld-fashionedPina ColadaRusty NailSidecarSingapore SlingTequila SunriseTom CollinsZombie
